DPA 4017C Shotgun Microphone

The DPA 4017C Shotgun Microphone is equipped with a highly-directional hypercardioid pickup pattern; obtained using a supercardioid design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis rejection. Its unique directional pattern is useful when you need exceptionally high directivity with high background noise rejection. It is convenient when you cannot place the mic close enough to the sound source. The MMP-C preamplifier makes booming applications such as in a car or in low-ceiling rooms is uncomplicated.

At just 154 mm (6.1 in) and 70 g (2.5 oz), this mic sets new standards for compactness within shotgun microphones and their applications. At the same time, it offers impressive accuracy, clarity and musicality.

The mic is fully immune to RF emission and the 19 mm (0.75 in) condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping. Designed for a broad range of applications, the d:dicate™ Microphones Series is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast/ENG/film booming and even studio recording environments.
Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound coming from the sides and back of the microphone. One of the key accomplishments is that we have minimized often very un-linear response of a shotgun microphone due to its side lobes. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications.

The d:dicate™ 4017C Shotgun Microphone, Compact is also available with Rycote Windshield and suspension system – a fully-packed and ready-to-go solution – DPA 4017C-R

At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 4017C Shotgun Microphone, Compact into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
