4099D is a microphone solution that allows for high quality audio capture of drums and percussion instruments. The low profile and unobtrusive design provides visual elegance along with uncompromised sound quality and accurate dynamics.
The unique and flexible clip-on system provides fast, stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily positioned at different angles via the flexible gooseneck to fit different drums and allow a variety of sound nuances. The 4099D includes a 3-pin XLR phantom power adapter.
The 4099D unveils a revolutionary new “90 degree” system which provides many more mounting options. By detaching the clip from the gooseneck and re-mounting it turned 90 degrees, the number of mic positions is doubled.
4099D can easily be combined in numerous ways and with a wide variety of microphones. For bass drum, the DPA VC4099 clip fits perfect on the rim and makes a DPA Microphones drum-sound revelation possible at a reasonable price level.
Optional gooseneck extension
Standard gooseneck length is 140 mm (5.5 in), which can be altered with the optional gooseneck extension unit, adding another 50% to the length, helping to achieve exactly the sweet spot for the instrument.
From May 2012, the updated 4099 range features detachable cable from gooseneck, so it’s more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before connecting it. Furthermore, the choice of different cable qualities makes it possible to tailor your mic to the specific task, such as choosing the heavy duty 2.2 mm cable for PA/Live gigs or the easier-to-hide, thinner miniature cable for personal mounting on instruments where you don’t want the cable weight to interfere with your performance. In case of cable break, service is easy and fast.

Supercardioid gooseneck mic with cable

Clip to attach on drums and various percussion (also available separately as DC4099)
