Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic with Compact Preamp
We are expecting shipment to arrive soon. Meanwhile, reserve your set today!
The 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic is a directional microphone. The distinctive sound of this microphone is well balanced, bridging the gap between the extreme sound quality of DPA’s pencil microphones and their well-known Lavalier microphones.
Two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt inside this microphone. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth. The capsules are loaded to our supreme preamps, which gives the sound more air and precision.
The 2011C features the MMP-C Mic Preamp, an ultra-compact preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing, having a slightly softer character than other preamps for the pencil microphones. It offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end than the 2011A. It is also much easier to position than other cardioid mics.
