Now with CORE by DPA technology

The d:vote™ is already the recognized standard for this type of microphone and the CORE version adds just another layer of sound quality that further distances this mic from its competitors. d:vote™ CORE 4099 brings more clarity and details to your music, across the entire dynamic range. Anyone looking for the very highest sound quality should choose CORE – every musician, live sound engineer and anyone else who takes pride in quality audio.

CORE by DPA is a powerful new technology at the heart of DPA miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion. From pianissimo to forte, you will experience increased clarity and openness. Learn more about CORE by DPA.

From the piano to guitar; strings to woodwinds; brass to percussion, the d:vote™ Series sounds equally impressive on them all. This one microphone model can beautifully reinforce an entire orchestra. You can move the mic to another instrument; just make sure you have the right type of clip to mount it correctly.The award-winning d:vote™ series gives you a much more natural sound than any clip-on microphone or pickup. This condenser microphone rejects unwanted noise and accurately captures the true voice of your acoustic instrument.

This microphone comes in two versions:

  • d:vote™ CORE 4099 Mic, Loud SPL (red marking on gooseneck) – used to close-mike most types of instruments
  • d:vote™ CORE 4099 Mic, Extreme SPL (yellow marking on gooseneck) – used to close-mike extremely loud instruments, such as drums and some brass

The  d:vote™ CORE 4099 also features an enhanced shock mount design, providing excellent isolation from handling noise and rumble. Detachable cables are available in heavy duty or lightweight versions, depending on the application – both are designed to withstand the rigors of daily use. A versatile, integrated gooseneck extender provides easy and repeatable mounting.

IP58 certified

All CORE by DPA technology microphones, including the d:vote™ 4099, are IP58 certified. This durability is achieved through a number of defense mechanisms:

  • Water-repellant nano-coating of the cover and housing
  • Hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic
  • Dual gold plating of the diaphragm

The d:vote™ CORE 4099 comes with an XLR connector as an adapter. The microphone can easily be connected to a wireless system via an adapter from our extensive range of wireless adapters.

The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. The mounting system is designed to never blemish or scratch the finish of your instrument. The flexible design supports a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities.
