DPA 4006-TL Omnidirectional Microphone, P48, Transformerless – No Longer Available

Omnidirectional microphone, P48, transformerless
MFR# 4006-TL

Product Description

DPA 4006 is one of the most popular types in the DPA microphone range and is a worldwide reference thanks to its precise, detailed andnatural reproduction. For more than 20 years it has impressed studio owners and broadcasters as well as musicians and engineers thanks to its transparent sound quality. It is one of the most sought after studio microphones in the industry - and the one that gives you the most value for your money.

In striving to achieve an even cleaner sound, the DPA 4006-TL is equipped with a state-of-the-art, transformerless preamplifier and is powered via a standard 48V phantom power supply. This design increases the sensitivity and provides an extended low-frequency handling capability (15 Hz to 20 kHz ±2 dB). All components in this construction are very carefully selected to fulfill the demand for optimal neutrality, accuracy and extremely low distortion even at very high sound pressure levels and at complex passages in the music.

The applications of 4006-TL are numerous: AB stereo pair for symphonic concert hall recordings, close mic on instruments such as grand piano, guitar, double bass, percussion and speech/vocals, just to mention a few examples where a 4006-TL will give more detail and more open resolution.

With the acoustic modification accessories it is possible to gain different frequency responses and directional characteristics with just one 4006-TL. You simply change a grid and it will influence the sound field acoustically without any phase shift, noise or distortion, that any electrical filter will introduce.

4006-TL is a product for sound engineers with demands for high quality.The precise reproduction, total transparency and natural-sounding clarity of this microphone will provide you with a lifetime of satisfying listening.

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.
