The Compact and Discrete DPA Microphones 4099U Universal Clip Microphone

DPA Microphones 4099U Universal Clip Mic

  • Clean and natural sound
  • Excellent frequency and phase response
  • Compact, discreet size
  • Unique mounting system fits numerous instruments

The 4099U is a microphone system especially designed to address the unique mounting challenges of slim bodied and unusually shaped instruments. It allows for high quality audio capture while the low profile and light weight of the unobtrusive design provides visual elegance along with uncompromised sound quality.

The creative design of the unique microphone clip includes a hook-and-loop fastener strap which allows the holder to fit numerous instruments of varying sizes and diameters such as oboe, clarinet, bassoon, recorder and flute. The hook-and-loop fastener band pulls tight to fit the circumference of the instrument, like a wrist watch on your arm. If using the clip on very large diameter instruments, additional hook-and-loop fastener straps can easily be added to extend the clip’s capacity.

The 4099U includes a revolutionary new “90 degree” system which provides many more mounting options. By detaching the clip from the gooseneck and re-mounting it turned 90 degrees, the number of mic positions is doubled.

The 4099U includes a 3-pin XLR phantom power adapter. The UC4099 Universal Clip is available separately, and can be used with any of the various versions of the 4099 family.

The package includes

  • A super cardioid goose neck mic with cable
  • Integrated windscreen and shock mount system
  • Clip with hook-and-loop fastener to mount on various instruments (also available separately as UC4099)
  • XLR adapter with belt clip
