DPA d:vote 4099 P - Instrument Microphone Stereo Kit for Piano
The d:vote™ 4099P Stereo Microphone System for Piano is a piano miking solution that makes it easy to achieve a high level of isolation on stage. The solution also provides clean and transparent stereo sound quality with realistic dynamics. It is a complete system, which includes a pair of sensitivity-selected d:vote™ Instrument Microphones on goosenecks with magnetic mounts.
The d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone series is truly a musician’s mic without equal. With the legendary sonic characteristics of our d:dicate™ Microphones, this series allows you to achieve the purest reproduction of your instrument. The mics feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. They offer extremely natural sound and are fully capable of handling the violin’s dynamic range and subtle details.
The versatile magnet mount/gooseneck system provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can easily be positioned at different angles to provide a variety of sound nuances. The system includes two 3-pin XLR adapters.
The mount can also be used with various instruments with magnetic surfaces.
Flexible adapter system
The adapters for wireless systems give you flexible, simple and affordable possibilities. You are no longer bound to one wireless system. As circumstances change, you can just switch your adapter, instead of incurring the cost of a whole new microphone. And when you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality.
The d:fine™, d:screet™ and d:vote™ series of miniature microphones work with all leading wireless mic solutions, such as Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Zaxcom and many more. DPA Microphones’ ingenious adapter system is one of a kind in the industry. It protects your investment in fantastic sound for years to come.
Optional gooseneck extension
The standard gooseneck length is 140 mm (5.5 in). An optional gooseneck extension unit is also available. This adds 50% extra length, which helps reach the sweet spot for some instruments.
The d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone series features cables that are detachable from the gooseneck. This makes it more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before connecting it. The microphone comes with the 1.6 mm (0.06 in) miniature cable, which is appropriate for personal mounting on instruments. The heavy duty 2.2 mm (0.09 in) cable is ideal for PA and live gigs. You can choose between the different cable qualities, to tailor your mic to a specific task.

“The piano is the lead instrument and it’s what everyone follows. If they lose the piano or it doesn’t sound clear to them, it makes their job very difficult. The d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones have enabled me to achieve a better quality and a more natural sound, which is my ultimate goal.”
