For a broad range of long-distance broadcast, ENG and film miking applications, such as booming, dialogue, interview, and table or podium use, the DPA 4018C Compact Supercardioid Mic is the perfect solution.
The 4018C is only 6.4cm (2.5″) long, and has a very small footprint. It has a highly-directional supercardioid pickup pattern with a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response. It is ideal for use as a spot or hanging mic for orchestra recording situations. The narrow angle of sensitivity helps to minimise the bleed from other sounds on a busy stage.
The 4018C is part of the DPA flexible pencil mic series. It offers superb versatility through modular accessories.
The DPA 4018C’s supercardioid shape is frequency independent, producing an identical sound colour around the microphone. The usual rear lobe heard on most supercardioids is minimised on this capsule. This makes it much more isolated without sudden frequency dependent peaks and dips.
