HARMONY CENTRAL'S PHIL O'KEEFE REVIEWS d:vote™ 4099

"I was very impressed with both the d:vote™ 4099D and d:vote™ 4099G. I'm sure both will be very popular with touring musicians and live sound companies, and I suspect we'll see more than a few of them showing up in recording studios too."
"The sound of the DPA d:vote™ 4099 is consistent with my impressions from previous experiences with other DPA microphones; it's a detailed and very accurate sounding mic that doesn't color the sound in any significant way, but rather captures and conveys it honestly - doubtless due in no small part to the microphone's admirably flat frequency response, with the very modest +2 dB boost at 10-12 kHz adding to their excellent detail and articulation. This sonic neutrality and accuracy makes the 4099 a very flexible mic. With the d:vote 4099 series, DPA have succeeded in designing a great sounding microphone that works admirably well with a wide range of sound sources. It's also cool that they make a lower-sensitivity version for very high SPL instruments like drums, and that they offer the various mounting clips for sale separately. If you already have a few d:vote™ 4099D and d:vote™ 4099G mics, adding some new mounts will allow you to use them on various other instruments besides drums and guitars too. That can be a big advantage for live sound companies who need to maintain flexibility for their varied clients.

(...) In conclusion, I was very impressed with both the
d:vote™ 4099D and d:vote™ 4099G. I'm sure both will be very popular with touring musicians and live sound companies, and I suspect we'll see more than a few of them showing up in recording studios too. Flexible, adaptable, and great sounding, they're exceptional mics that are very worthy of your attention and deserving of an audition, no matter what instrument you play, or where you play it."
