DPA d:dicate 4018A - Shotgun Hypercardioid Microphone

The DPA d:dicate 4018A is a super-cardioid shotgun condenser microphone from the DPA Reference line intended for broadcast, video production and location sound scenarios.

Sporting a lobe shaped super-cardioid polar pick up pattern, the mic has high rejection ambient sound sources to the rear and side of the mic capsule and superb off axis response. Meaning high separation without off axis frequency boosts and dips. Suited for broadcast, ENG, video production and studio purposes, the mic is great for booming, long distance dialogue pick up, foley, interview and spot recording.

DPA 4018A Features

• Highly directional Supercardioid 
• Uniform, frequency independent directionality
• Low noise and high sensitivity for distant positioning
• Excellent for spot miking orchestra sections or singers
