4007C OMNIDIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE, 12 MM, COMPACT

When a small, lightweight, inconspicuous microphone for top-quality recordings or measurements is required, the compact design and clean, transparent sound of this versatile mic is the perfect choice.

It features an extremely linear on-axis response in an extended frequency range from 10 Hz to 40 kHz (±2 dB). This mic is also popular with musicians for close-miking instruments such as drums, percussion, double bass, trumpet and piano. This microphone is also suitable for a wide range of applications from AB stereo pair to measurement requirements.
 

The microphone capsule

This high-performance condenser omni mic has an unbeatable dynamic range of 124 dB from the noise floor to 1% THD. It is capable of handling up to 160 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs.

It has, through its total acoustical transparency and ultra-high SPL handling capability, gained a reputation as being the first choice for picking up drums, percussion and brass instruments, whenever a natural and non-distorted result is paramount.

Due to its linear qualities and perfect omnidirectionality, it is also used as reference microphone in both microphone comparisons and acoustic test equipment.


A truly flexible range

The MMC4007 Capsule is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphone series. The MMC4007, with the MMP-C Compact Preamplifier, provides neutral sonic and visual design with linear response in extended frequency bandwidth. An alternative solution, the MMC4007 with the MMP-A preamplifier, is a legendary high-SPL recording and calibration classic, with natural tone and dynamics.

At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 4007C Omnidirectional Microphone, 12mm, Compact into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
