• 4097 choir microphone from DPA

    DPA Microphones has launched the 4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Microphone. According to the Danish manufacturer, the newest DPA addition has been designed with the same sonic character as the company’s other mics.

    “We put a great deal of time into designing both of these microphones, which offer high-quality audio at an affordable price-point to meet the needs of churches of all sizes” says Alan Johnson, U.S. HOW sales manager, DPA Microphones. “Our 4097 is a sleek and elegant choir microphone that is smaller than other mics of its kind. It features our CORE by DPA amplifier technology, which means a clear sound is achieved every time as it lowers the distortion and expands the dynamic range.”

    Targeted at house of worship and choir applications, the 4097 Choir Mic provides the same sonic qualities as the brand’s 4099 CORE Instrument Microphone, but was designed specifically to capture dynamic choir sound. Configured with a MicroDot connector and a DPA adapter for wired or wireless use, the 4097 offers flexibility on stage when there are multiple uses of the same space. Furthermore, the 4097 uses a triple shock-mount system to ensure that rumble caused by movement on the stage is damped effectively –at a level that is not reportedly seen before in mics of this class.

    Additionally, the new 4097 Choir Mic features DPA’s typical flat off-axis supercardioid pattern and, like all DPA microphones, shows a very flat frequency response, which helps to fight feedback. Due to the off-axis characteristic, the 4097 makes the entire choir sound natural –not just on axis –but from all angles. It also makes using multiple mics on the choir easy for the sound engineer as he can easily mix the various parts of the choir and blend it all together without having to fight the artifacts created from uneven mic pattern pick-up, claims DPA.
