This kit features a number of 4099 CORE Instrument Microphones for Loud SPL, which are perfect for use on a wide range of instruments – from the flute to the guitar, and everything in between.
The 4099 Rock Touring Kit offers a number of 4099 condenser microphones and a selection of accessories selected for typical use in a live rock music setting. With a max SPL, peak before clipping of 152 dB, the 4099 CORE Instrument Microphone for Extreme-SPL instruments was designed for use on drums, percussion instruments and other loud instruments, like the trumpet and saxophone.
“I've been using 4099 Instrument Microphones for many years, especially on cello and double bass. I really like them because they are so small, light and easy to install. They come with a fabulous range of accessories and are not invasive, even on small instruments such as violins. In terms of sound, they bring out the true nature of an acoustic instrument and deliver the deep, full-bodied, true low end bass that you expect to hear."
– Simone 'Zeta' Saccomandi, front of house engineer for Italian ensemble, LE DIV4S
About 4099 CORE Instrument Microphones
Both the Loud- and Extreme-SPL versions of the 4099 CORE have a supercardioid polar pattern for high rejection and superior gain-before-feedback. The mic also retains a uniform off-axis frequency response to ensure a high-energy, clear live performance.
The 4099 CORE also features an enhanced shock mount design, providing excellent isolation from handling noise and rumble. Cables are available in heavy duty or lightweight versions, depending on the application – both are designed to withstand the rigors of daily use. A versatile, integrated gooseneck extender provides easy and repeatable mounting.
The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. The mounting system is designed to never blemish or scratch the finish of your instrument. The flexible design supports a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities
