DPA MMC4011 Cardioid Pencil Microphone Capsule

The principal appeal of the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule is its directional quality and attention to detail. This mic makes everything sounds like the original.

The first-order cardioid pickup pattern provides superb separation between sound sources.

It is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies. It can handle incredibly high sound levels.

A flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a totally faithful reproduction of the original sound. The off-axis response is similarly smooth so that any leakage is an accurate reflection of the original, though attenuated according to the true first-order cardioid pickup pattern.

A truly flexible range

The MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule is a pencil microphone from the flexible Pencil Microphone Series. You can combine the capsule with any of the preamplifiers in the Pencil Microphone Series to fit your specific needs.

The MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule coupled with the MMP-A Preamplifier is the worldwide reference standard for extreme sound level handling. For another option, match the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule with the MMP-C Compact Preamplifier for compact and precise close-miking of the majority of instruments.

  • MMP-A Preamplifier
  • MMP-B Preamp, low cut and high boost
