ST2011A STEREO PAIR WITH TWO 2011A, CLIPS AND WINDSCREENS IN PELI™ CASE

Product Details

MSRP $1,979.95 excl. local VAT
Product ID ST2011A
A complete stereo pair; two handpicked cardioid condenser microphones, selected on sensitivity within ±1.5 dB. Makes several stereo principles like XY and ORTF easy to obtain.

These mics are acclaimed for their close-miking excellence and hi-SPL handling. Optimized for onstage use, it has been used on many stages as well as recording sessions. They exhibit a previously unheard blend of clarity, richness and dynamic range. The off-axis response is linear but in a smaller frequency bandwidth. This makes stage separation and gain-to-feedback higher. The mic level is easier to control.

The foam design in the heavy-duty transportation box allows for fast and easy exchange of the microphone/accessory inlays.
 

The microphone capsule

Inside this capsule, two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth.

The capsules are loaded to the supreme d:dicate™ Microphone series preamplifiers instead of the tiny miniature FET ones. This gives the sound more air and precision.

Comparisons with its big brother, the iconic MMC4011 capsule, are inevitable. The relationship between the two can be clearly heard. The MMC2000 series performs as well as more exclusive microphones. It is a premium-class mic capsule and redefines the term value for money.

Another option, the d:dicate™ 2011C Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone, Compact offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end than the d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone.

At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
