The DPA DDK4000 Drum Microphone Kit is a premium recording and live sound solution designed to capture the true essence of drum kits with unparalleled clarity and precision. DPA, a renowned manufacturer of high-end microphones, has crafted this kit to cater to the demands of professional drummers, sound engineers, and recording studios.

At the heart of the DDK4000 kit are four precision-engineered microphones, each tailored to a specific aspect of drum recording. The kit includes three DPA 4099 Core Instrument Microphones, two DPA 2015 Wide Cardioid Microphones (Stereo Pair), one DPA 2012 Cardioid Microphone and one 4055 Kick Drum Microphone. These microphones are known for their exceptional sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range, making them ideal for capturing the nuanced tonal qualities of drums.

The 4099 microphones are versatile clip-on microphones that can be easily attached to various drum elements, such as snare drums or toms, providing a natural and uncoloured sound reproduction.  They give a much more natural sound than any other clip-on microphone or pickup.  These condenser mics reject unwanted noise and accurately capture the true voice of the acoustic instrument.

The 2015s are ideal overhead microphones, featuring a wide cardioid pick-up pattern, they allow closer placement than normal overhead mics resulting in an even pick-up with a stronger signal and less bleed from stage.

The 2012 is a condenser microphone that has outstanding SPL handling enabling it to cope with extremely high SPLs which means it can be used in places where dynamic microphones would typically be used, like miking a snare drum.  Being a condenser microphone means it has a far better transient response than a dynamic microphone which allows it to pick up the most delicate sound with tremendous accuracy.

The 4055 microphone is perfect for the kick drum, offering excellent low-frequency response and transient accuracy.

With the DDK4000, DPA has once again set the bar high for drum microphone excellence, making it an indispensable tool for anyone seeking to capture the thunderous energy and subtle nuances of drum performances.
