DPA 4004 Hi-SPL Omnidirectional 130v – No Longer Available

Hi-SPL omnidirectional, 130V
MFR# 4004

Product Description

The Type 4004 is an omnidirectional hi-voltage (130 V) close miking specialist with an extended on-axis frequency response from 10Hz to 40kHz (±2dB).  The 4004 is a condenser microphone specially designed to handle extremely high sound pressure levels - up to 168dB SPL before clipping occurs. It has an unbeatable dynamic range of 124dB from the noise floor to 1% THD and an extended headroom of 20dB up to clipping level due to the special hi-voltage powering system.  The 4004 is acoustically identical with the reference microphone Type 4007, but differs in the powering system and the fact that the 4004 has a transformerless output.  4004 is totally transparent and is the perfect choice in all close miking recording situations regardless of the sound source.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
