d:vote™ 4099S Clip Microphone for all Saxophones, Bass Clarinet
Flexible and easy one-hand mounting
Holder gentle to the instrument
Detachable cable and versatile gooseneck extender
Soprano, alto, tenor or baritone, the 4099S fits them all, providing exceptional gain-before-feedback and a broad spectrum of uncompromised tonal possibilities depending on the microphone placement.
The 4099S is a unique clip microphone inheriting the sonic approach from the legendary DPA studio microphones to a new instrument microphone. The 4099 microphone and mounting system is meticulously designed and optimized for the saxophone family. This is to ensure the best possible mount and audio reinforcement is achieved when performing live.
Representing years of research and development, the 4099 condenser microphones feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. Fully capable of handling any saxophone’s dynamic range and fine-grained timbre, these microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other world-class microphones.
Despite its tiny, discreet size and elegant, lightweight design, 4099S is extremely rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand, while the mounting system is designed never to mar or scratch the finish of your instrument.
Through the use of our extensive adapter system, the 4099 is compatible with virtually any wireless system and can also be used as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via the included XLR connector.
With its very flexible design for a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities along with its extremely natural sound, the 4099 is truly a musician’s mic without equal. Continuing DPA’s heritage of sonic excellence, this series of microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and therefore your full range of expression.
Optional gooseneck extension
Standard gooseneck length is 140 mm (5.5 in), which can be altered with the optional gooseneck extension unit, adding another 50% to the length, helping to achieve exactly the sweet spot for the instrument.
The updated 4099 range features detachable cable from gooseneck, so it’s more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before connecting it. Furthermore, the choice of different cable qualities makes it possible to tailor your mic to the specific task, such as choosing the heavy duty 2.2 mm cable for PA/Live gigs or the easier-to-hide, thinner miniature cable for personal mounting on instruments where you don’t want the cable weight to interfere with your performance. In case of cable break, service is easy and fast.
Adapters for wireless microphones
A wide range of connection adapters makes it possible to use DPA miniature microphones with all professional UHF, VHF or digital wireless system available plus 48 V Phantom.
