DPA 4006 is one of the most popular types in the DPA microphone range and is a worldwide reference thanks to its precise, detailed and natural reproduction. For more than 20 years it has impressed studio owners and broadcasters as well as musicians and engineers thanks to its transparent sound quality. It is one of the most sought after studio microphones in the industry - and the one that gives most value for your money.

In striving to achieve an even cleaner sound, the 4006-TL is equipped with a state-of-the-art transformerless preamplifier and is powered via a standard 48 V Phantom Power supply. This design increases the sensitivity and provides an extended low-frequency handling capability (15 Hz to 20 kHz ±2 dB). All components in this construction are very carefully selected to fulfil the demand for optimal neutrality, accuracy and extremely low distortion even at very high sound pressure levels and at complex passages in the music.

The applications of 4006-TL are numerous: AB stereo pair for symphonic concert hall recordings, close mic on instruments such as grand piano, guitar, double bass, percussion and speech/vocals, just to mention a few examples where a 4006-TL will give more detail and more open resolution.

With the acoustic modification accessories it is possible to gain 7 different frequency responses and directional characteristics with just one 4006-TL. You simply change a grid or mount an element over the capsule and it will influence the sound field acoustically without any phase shift, noise or distortion, that any electrical filter will introduce.

4006-TL is a product for sound engineers with demands for high quality. The precise reproduction, total transparency and natural-sounding clarity of this microphone will provide you with a lifetime of satisfying listening.

If you have a 4006, you can upgrade to 4006-TL. The upgrade includes a factory-based retrofitting to the DPA 4006-TL with transformerless preamplifier, close-miking grid, DPA 4006-TL type ring, calibration chart and new mic case.
