With the DPA 4055 you get a microphone that is absolutely worth its price and can pass as a high-end all-rounder.
One of Germany's leading online magazines, Bonedo, has tested our 4055 Kick Drum mic
and found it worthy of 5 start out of 5.
"In the test, the asymmetrically designed, very compact microphone came up with excellent results that go far beyond the use on bass drums.
Thanks to the reduced sensitivity and the high maximum sound pressure, it can be used anywhere on the drum kit without a pad. It convinces with unusually detailed, powerful sounds, even on toms and even snare drums.
With the DPA 4055 you get a microphone that is absolutely worth its price and can pass as a high-end all-rounder. It's an absolute check on 'buy recommendation'!"
