Both the Loud- and Extreme-SPL versions of the 4099 CORE have a supercardioid polar pattern for high rejection and superior gain-before-feedback. The mic also retains a uniform off-axis frequency response to ensure a high-energy, clear live performance. The 4099 CORE also features an enhanced shock mount design, providing excellent isolation from handling noise and rumble. Cables are available in heavy duty or lightweight versions, depending on the application – both are designed to withstand the rigors of daily use. A versatile, integrated gooseneck extender provides easy and repeatable mounting..
