Accessories for the DPA 4099B microphone!
The d:vote 4099-B is a pro-level bass microphone from Danish company DPA; with super-lightweight construction, an integrated mounting clip system, and top-notch sound quality, it might just be the perfect microphone for live upright bass?
On this page, we have the accessories (for options and replacement) for the DPA mic. If you need the mic itself, check it out in the related items.
Rubber Spanner Clip
The 4099B uses a special lightweight rubber clip which attaches to the E and G string below the bridge; it is intended to allow you to place the mic capsule in-between the bridge and fingerboard, a popular spot for open, realistic mic'ing. Mounted to a flexible gooseneck, the mic capsule can be aimed right at the "sweet spot" on your particular bass (it's usually different on every bass!) to get the best sound.
The Gooseneck Extension (only compatible with the d-Vote versions of the DPA mic) can extend the existing goosneck by an extra 80mm of length, for more precise positioning. It simply plugs "inline" with the existing gooseneck for simple installation.
Heavier-duty Mini Cable
You can now upgrade to a thicker, more robust cable than the one included with the DPA (which is designed to be very thin and light). The cable simply replaces the one you have; the microdot connectors disconnect from the mic end and the XLR connector and you connect the new cable in its place. The cable is still quite light and thin, but it's more rugged than the stock cable.
