DPA 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone, P48 – No Longer Available

Omnidirectional microphone, P48
MFR# 4006

Product Description

The DPA Type 4006 is without doubt the most popular Standard Microphone in the Series 4000 Microphones and has since its release in 1982 earned a status as being the worldwide studio standard. It is an omnidirectional condenser microphone with an extremely linear frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz, high sensitivity and a low noise-floor.  The 4006 is phantom powered (P48), which together with the extended range of acoustic pressure equalizers and different protection grids turns the 4006 into an extremely cost effective solution.  All in all the Type 4006 can be changed into 7 different microphone versions acoustically.  The 4006 has gained its reputation through its total transparency in both the near-field and in the diffuse field. A must for any studio.

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.
