DPA 2011ES Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic, Side Cable, XLR
DPA 2011ES Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic
At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic into a new configuration with the MMP-ES Preamp with Side Cable . The 2011 is very widely used as a snare drum mic but fits easily well on many other instruments.
Distinctive, well-balanced sound
The 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic is a directional microphone. The distinctive sound of this microphone is well balanced. It bridges the gap between the extreme sound quality of our pencil microphones and our well-known Lavalier microphones.
- Blends clarity, richness and dynamics
- Twin Diaphragm Capsule Technology
- Advanced Interference Tube Technology
- Superb stage separation and level control
- Modular flexibility
Two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt inside this microphone. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth. The capsules are loaded to our supreme preamps, which gives the sound more air and precision.
Combine it with the preamp of your choice
As with all of our modular pencil microphones, you can combine the 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic Capsule with any of our preamps.
The MMP-A Mic Preamp is an ultra-transparent, transformerless preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing. The MMP-C Compact Mic Preamp is an ultra-compact preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing. It has a slightly softer character than the other preamps for our pencil microphones. Other preamps include the very small form factor types MMP-E Modular Active Cable (XLR output) and MMP-G Modular Active Cable (MicroDot output), allowing for very slim set-ups. The MMP-G even allows you to match a larger microphone directly to a wireless transmitter.
