Overview

The DPA d:vote 4099C Instrument Microphone for Cello is perfect for PA amplification and live recording of a cello. The microphone and mounting system is meticulously designed and optimized for the violoncello. It attaches to the C and A string below the bridge. This places the microphone capsule in the sweet spot between the bridge and fingerboard, offering a unique combination of natural string sound and high audio separation on stage. The sound the d:vote™ 4099C Instrument Microphone for Cello provides is considerably more natural than an internal microphone or pick-up.

DPA mics feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. They offer extremely natural sound and are fully capable of handling the cello’s dynamic range and subtle details.

Known for their discreet size and elegance, these mics feature a lightweight design. Yet, d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones are also rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. 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
