DPA 4055  Kick-drum microphone
new final_ny.png
DPA-4055

What makes the 4055 stand out from the competition is that it delivers the renowned DPA sound, clarity and linear frequency response, both on axis and off axis. Its low frequency response and dynamics are superb and result in a tight, natural, well-defined sound - the best low-end with detailed mids and highs.

The 4055 is one of the only kick drum mics that is not sonically pre-tailored to fit a traditional sound in a specific genre. Its performance allows a professional sound designer to create the exact sound s/he is listening for - regardless of the music genre. Want more attack? Slide the 4055 into the bass drum and point it directly at the beater. For a super-low-end sound, place the 4055 at the hole, just on the outside of the front head. Here, the level of sub and lows are represented the most.

Not only does the position inside or outside the kick drum give you different sounds but working with the angles of the microphone just outside the hole will deliver nuances of the drum sound. No matter what sound preference you have, the 4055 captures the true sound of a kick drum, whether it is used in classic, jazz, rock or any other genre.

The 4055 is placed in a large, robust housing and there is wind damping foam just in front of the capsule, behind the grille. A specially-designed shock mount also suspends the capsule inside the housing to avoid vibrations from the stage. The shock mount together with the extra wind damping ensures that the 4055 captures only the source.

The 4055 is easy to position, both inside and outside the drum. Its unique asymmetric design makes it quite easy to place the mic through the drum hole without ripping the front resonator skin.

DPA 2012 Compact cardioid mic

DPA-2012

DPA 2012 - Great close miking on any instrument on the live stage

The 2012 Compact Cardioid Microphone is an all-around generalist pencil mic that guarantees excellent results on any instrument on a live stage.

Durable, reinforced construction

Excellent transient response

Uniform cardioid directionality

Outstanding SPL handling

Natural and precise sound reproduction

The 2012 Compact Cardioid Mic is the best all-around, generalist mic that you can find to cover a wide range of close-miking needs on the live stage. It is a robust and reliable condenser mic, best for single instrument pickup. Its specifically powerful characteristics make it an extremely flexible mic that will shine on many instruments, particularly those in the high-frequency range.

Durable, reinforced construction

The 2012 is constructed to withstand rough handling on a hectic live stage. It has a thicker, more robust body construction of brass that is very durable and known for its corrosion resistance and tolerance against metal fatigue. In addition to the heavy-duty materials used, the surfaces of the mic handle and grille are treated with a protective black chrome finish, which ensures more graceful ageing.

Unmatched transient response

The 2012, is a professional condenser mic, making it the best choice for those instruments that produce high frequencies. It has a far better transient response than any dynamic microphone, which allows it to pick up the most delicate sound with tremendous accuracy.

Uniform cardioid directionality

The 2012 has a cardioid capsule with DPA’s famously flat off-axis response. Besides a high gain-before-feedback, this characteristic makes it easier for sound engineers to handle bleed from other instruments at close proximity. The 2012 picks up off-axis sounds in a very natural and attenuated way.

Outstanding SPL handling

The 2012 can cope with both extremely high SPLs as well as capture very delicate sounds. With a max SPL, peak before clipping of 156 dB, the 2012, works well on many different instruments and can handle the loudest drums, guitars, horns and more.

Natural and precise sound reproduction

Like all other DPA microphones, the 2012 delivers pure, transparent sound quality.

Key applications

Hi-hats

Electric guitar cabinets

DPA 2015 Compact wide cardioid mic
new final_ny.png
DPA-2015

Overhead mics for ambient pick up on the live stage

The 2015 Compact Wide Cardioid Microphone is for ambient pick up of a drum kit or other instrument groups.

Features:

Durable, reinforced construction

Uniform wide cardioid directionality

Spacious sound due to a wide cardioid pick-up pattern

Natural and precise sound reproduction

Compact design for unobtrusive placement on stage

In a live situation when a conventional cardioid pattern isn’t quite open enough, choose a pair of 2015 Compact Wide Cardioids. They work ideally as overheads to capture a balanced sound of the entire group of instruments, like a drum kit. Also, when recording instrument groups with complex radiation patterns, the wide cardioid (also known as hemispheric, subcardioid or hypocardioid) design covers a greater sound angle and is an excellent choice.

Durable, reinforced construction

The 2015 is constructed to withstand rough handling on a hectic live stage. It has a thicker, more robust body construction of brass that is very durable and known for its corrosion resistance and tolerance against metal fatigue. In addition to the heavy-duty materials used, the surfaces of the mic handle and grille are treated with a protective black chrome finish, which ensures more graceful ageing.

Uniform cardioid directionality

The 2015 has a wide cardioid capsule with DPA’s famously flat off-axis response. Besides a high gain-before-feedback, this characteristic makes it easier for sound engineers to handle bleed from other instruments at close proximity. The 2015 picks up off-axis sounds in a very natural and attenuated way.

Spacious, wide cardioid pick-up pattern

The 2015 can be positioned near the drum kit, closer than you would normally place overhead microphones, and still capture sound evenly across the entire drum kit. This closer position results in stronger signal from the drum kit and therefore less bleed from the stage.

Natural and precise sound reproduction

Like all other DPA microphones, the 2015 delivers pure, transparent sound quality.

Compact design for unobtrusive placement on stage

Although the 2015 can be purchased as a single mic, it really shines as a matched stereo pair, selected with +/- 1.5 dB sensitivity tolerance. The compact design of this stereo pair ensures an open, natural sound pick-up without blocking any of the exciting action on stage.

Key applications

Overheads on drums

Grand piano, away or close to the strings

Horn groups

Vibraphones

Xylophones

Large marimbas

Other large instruments
