DPA MMC4017 Hypercardioid Shotgun Pencil Microphone Capsule

This condenser microphone capsule is part of our selection of pencil microphones. It is equipped with a highly-directional hypercardioid pickup pattern; obtained using a supercardioid design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis rejection.

The MMC4017 Shotgun Microphone Capsule is fully immune to RF emission and the 19 mm (0.75 in) condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping.

Designed for a broad range of applications, the Pencil Microphones Series is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast / ENG / film booming and even studio recording environments.

Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound coming from the sides and back of the microphone. One of the key accomplishments is that we have minimized often very un-linear response of a shotgun microphone due to its side lobes. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications.

The capsule, combined with the MMP-B preamplifier, is a short and exceptionally lightweight shotgun microphone with impressive accuracy, clarity and musicality.

  • MMP-A Preamplifier
