4099P is a piano miking solution that makes it easy to achieve a high level of isolation on stage while providing clean and transparent stereo sound quality with realistic dynamics.
The 4099P is a complete system which includes a pair of sensitivity selected 4099 microphones on goosenecks with magnetic mounts to allow the most realistic capture of a piano. With its low profile and unobtrusive design it is perfect in closed lid scenarios for capturing true acoustic piano sound in a live setting.
The versatile magnet mount/gooseneck system provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can easily be positioned at different angles via the flexible gooseneck to provide a variety of sound nuances. The system includes two 3-pin XLR adapters.
The mounts can also be used with various instruments with magnetic surfaces.
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.
