Designed with a supercardioid polar pattern for high rejection and superior gain-before-feedback, the mic retains a highly uniform off-axis frequency response. It also features an enhanced shock mount design, a choice of detachable cables in two diameters, as well as a versatile gooseneck extender.

Known for their discreet size and elegance, these mics feature a lightweight design. Yet, d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones are also rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. The mounting system is designed to never blemish or scratch the finish of your instrument. The flexible design supports a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities. 

“I've been using d:vote™ Instrument Microphones for many years, especially on cello and double bass. I really like them because they are so small, light and easy to install. They come with a fabulous range of accessories and are not invasive, even on small instruments such as violins. In terms of sound, they bring out the true nature of an acoustic instrument and deliver the deep, full-bodied, true low end bass that you expect to hear."

– Simone 'Zeta' Saccomandi, front of house engineer for Italian ensemble, LE DIV4S
