DPA 4053 – No Longer Available

Compact omnidirectional microphone, connector
MFR# 4053

Product Description

The Type 4053 is an omnidirectional phantom powered (P48) condenser microphone using the same type of cartridge as the famous Type 4006, but is preamplified using a build-in ultra-small thick-film mounted FET-preamplifier, which enables the cartridge to be mounted on a extremely compact microphone housing.  The 4053 has a standard LEMO-connector for simple and safe mounting and removal of the microphone capsule but also for usage together with the elegant and flexible Flamingo Series floor stands.

The linear on-axis frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz (±2 dB) together with the ultra-small design makes the 4053 the perfect choice for all kinds of on-camera or on-stage use where high definition audio is paramount.  The Type 4053 Compact Omnis are extremely popular as A-B Stereo pairs in concert halls where the beautiful architecture has to go hand in hand with quality recordings.

The Microphone is supplied with a 3 m cable Lemo to XLR.

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.
