DPA 4012

The DPA 4012 High Voltage Cardioid Mic. Highly regarded by engineers for its ultra high SPL capability and totally faithful reproduction of the original sound.

The DPA 4012 Cardioid Microphone is a hi-voltage (130 V) condenser microphone with a linear frequency response from 40 Hz to 20 kHz (±2 dB) and an incredible SPL handling capability of 168 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs. Type 4012 is acoustically identical with the popular Type 4011-TL, but differs in the powering method which enables the 4012 to handle these extreme sound pressure levels. The off-axis characteristics of the 4012 Cardioid Microphone are totally linear, a unique quality which has taken a lot of attention to obtain. So any leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources is still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, though attenuated according to the true first order cardioid pick-up pattern.

The main features of the DPA 4012 include:
