Perfect for PA amplification and live recording of acoustic guitar,
mandolin, ukulele and dobro, the 4099G offers practically unlimited
placement possibilities as well as a sound that is considerably
more natural than an internal microphone or pick-up.
The 4099G is a unique clip microphone inheriting the sonic approach
from the legendary DPA studio microphones to a new instrument
microphone. The 4099 microphone and mounting system is meticulously
designed and optimized for the guitar family. This is to ensure the
best possible mount and audio reinforcement is achieved when
performing live. The 4099G fits instruments with a body depth
between 35 mm (1.4 in) and 122 mm (4.8 in).
Representing years of research and development, the 4099 condenser
microphones feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior
gain-before-feedback. Fully capable of handling the guitar’s
dynamic range and subtle details, these microphones live up to
their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other
Despite its tiny, discreet size and elegant, lightweight design,
4099G is extremely rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable
and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and
repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand,
while the mounting system is designed never to mar or scratch the
finish of your instrument.
Reduce cable clutter on stage by using the DAO4099 Double Cable.
The cable carries both the 4099 mic extension cable and a pick-up
jack connection in one dual cable run in a nylon sock. The jack
uses high quality Mogami cable and gold Neutrik connectors. At the
instrument end there is a right-angled connector. The microphone
extension is the DPA miniature cable.
Through the use of our extensive adapter system, the 4099 is
compatible with virtually any wireless system and can also be used
as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via the included XLR
Fleet owners of 4099s will appreciate the multiplicity of using the
microphone for a number of different instruments simply by moving
the microphone/gooseneck part to another instrument clip from the
With its very flexible design for a wide variety of mounting and
positioning possibilities along with its extremely natural sound,
the 4099 is truly a musician’s mic without equal. Continuing
DPA’s heritage of sonic excellence, this series of
microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and
therefore your full range of expression.
Optional gooseneck extension
Standard gooseneck length is 140 mm (5.5 in), which can be altered
with the optional gooseneck extension unit, adding another 50% to
the length, helping to achieve exactly the sweet spot for the
The updated 4099 range features detachable cable from gooseneck, so
it’s more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before
connecting it. Furthermore, the choice of different cable qualities
makes it possible to tailor your mic to the specific task, such as
choosing the heavy duty 2.2 mm cable for PA/Live gigs or the
easier-to-hide, thinner miniature cable for personal mounting on
instruments where you don’t want the cable weight to
interfere with your performance. In case of cable break, service is
easy and fast.
