Product Details

MSRP $619.95 excl. local VAT
Product ID VO4099SM
Even though the d:vote™ Instrument Microphone is often used attached directly to a specific instrument, many users have asked for a solution to mount the mic on a regular microphone stand. Now you can get the unparalleled sound of the d:vote™ Instrument Microphone easily mounted on a mic stand. This mount has a 3/8″ thread that also fits smoothly with our elegant floor stand series. The top of the holder has a 360° turn-around option on a ball joint.

The d:vote™ Instrument Microphone series is truly a musician’s mic without equal. This series allows you to achieve the purest reproduction of your instrument. The mics feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. 
Known for their discreet size and elegance, these mics feature a lightweight design. Yet, d:vote™ Instrument Microphones are also rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mic can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another mic stand (or instrument with the right clip). 

Flexible adapter system

The adapters for wireless systems give you flexible, simple and affordable possibilities. You are no longer bound to one wireless system. As circumstances change, you can just switch your adapter, instead of incurring the cost of a whole new microphone. And when you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality.

Optional gooseneck extension

The standard gooseneck length is 140 mm (5.5 in). The optional gooseneck extension unit is also available. This adds 50% extra length, which helps reach the sweet spot for some instruments.
 

Detachable cables

The d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone series features cables that are detachable from the gooseneck. This makes it more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before connecting it. The d:vote™ 4099B Instrument Microphone for Bass comes with the heavy duty 2.2 mm (0.09 in) cable, which is ideal for PA and live gigs. The thinner 1.6 mm (0.06 in) miniature cable is more appropriate for personal mounting on instruments. You can choose between the different cable qualities, to tailor your mic to a specific task.

You can reduce cable clutter onstage by using our Double Cable (DAO4099). The cable carries both the mic extension cable and a pickup jack connection in one. The dual cables run in a nylon sock. The jack uses high-quality Mogami cable and gold Neutrik connectors. At the instrument end, there is a right-angled connector. The microphone extension is the miniature cable.
