Product ID VO4099T
The d:vote™ 4099T Instrument Microphone for Brass is perfect for trumpet, trombone and other brass instruments. You can use it with or without mute. The microphone effortlessly handles even the highest sound pressure levels. An innovative mounting mechanism makes it easy to move the microphone between instruments with one hand.

The microphone and its mounting system are both designed and optimized for the brass family. This ensures that the best mounting and audio reinforcement is achieved when performing live.

The d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone series is unique. This series allows you to achieve the purest reproduction of your instrument. The mics feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. They are fully capable of handling intense sound pressure levels from a trumpet.

Known for their discreet size and elegance, these mics feature a lightweight design. Yet, d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones are also rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. The mounting system is designed to never blemish or scratch your instrument. And you can use any mute together with the microphone. It is also easy to place your instrument in a stand with the mic on.

Its flexible design supports a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities. It also offers extremely natural sound. The d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone is truly a musician’s mic without equal.

“I just removed the previous EQs and compression and then it was a whole new ball game. They [d:vote™ 4099s] really sound incredible. We basically just plug them in and let them do what they’re supposed to. The results are incredible. There’s just something about the way that DPA’s microphones are constructed.”
