Hyper-Cardioid Dynamic Drum and Instrument Microphone
Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the D4 is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The D4, which is characterized with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control, is equipped with a VLM™ (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.
The D4 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 40 Hz - 18 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 144 dB, the D4 is an excellent choice for miking instruments requiring precise low frequency reproduction such as large rack toms, floor toms, cajon, djembe, tympani, leslie bottom, bass flute, sax and baritone sax, trombone, acoustic bass, bass cabs and small kick drums.
Roadworthy construction includes a precision machined aluminum body, black anodized finish, laser etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, Switchcraft® XLR connector and includes a tension-fit heavy duty nylon mic clip.
Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output allow for interference-free performance even with long cable runs.
