DPA 4099 

•Superior gain-before-feedback

•Wireless compatible

•Flexible and easy one-hand mounting

•Holder gentle to the instrument

High quality sax microphone for studio or stage. Clean flat response with good feedback characteristics. Requires phantom powering from your PA mixer (most have this but do check). Alternatively, use it with a wireless system. Adaptors available for most transmitters including Audio Technica & AKG.

Works well with the WMS45 Perception Pro Wireless System but you will need the Adaptor for AKG transmitter 

Soprano, alto, tenor or baritone, the 4099S fits them all, providing exceptional gain-before-feedback and a broad spectrum of uncompromised tonal possibilities depending on the microphone placement. 

The 4099S is a unique clip microphone inheriting the sonic approach from the legendary DPA studio microphones to a new instrument microphone. The 4099 microphone and mounting system is meticulously designed and optimized for the saxophone family. This is to ensure the best possible mount and audio reinforcement is achieved when performing live. 

Representing years of research and development, the 4099 condenser microphones feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. Fully capable of handling any saxophone’s dynamic range and fine-grained timbre, these microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other world-class microphones.

Despite its tiny, discreet size and elegant, lightweight design, 4099S is extremely rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand, while the mounting system is designed never to mar or scratch the finish of your instrument. 

With its very flexible design for a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities along with its extremely natural sound, the 4099 is truly a musician’s mic without equal. Continuing DPA’s heritage of sonic excellence, this series of microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and therefore your full range of expression.
