4017B Shotgun Microphone
At just 210 mm (8.3 in) and 68 g (2.4 oz), this mic is one of the shortest and lightest shotgun condenser microphones available. At the same time, it offers impressive accuracy, clarity and musicality. The 4017B Shotgun Microphone features two onboard filters. They are activated via an ingenious switching ring design. With a simple twist of two sturdy rings, engineers can implement a high-frequency boost that adds a 4 dB shelf at 8 kHz. This compensates for hi loss when used with windjammers. A first-order bass roll-off below 120 Hz minimizes handling and wind noise. A permanent third-order high-pass filter at 50 Hz effectively removes unwanted low frequency disturbance from handling and wind noise.
This solution is also available with Rycote® Windshield and suspension system – a fully-packed and ready-to-go solution.
Impressive accuracy and clarity
Designed for a broad range of applications, the 4017 Shotgun Mic is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast / ENG / film booming and even studio recording environments.
- Small and lightweight
- Excellent RF immunity
- Highly immune to humidity
- Uniform off-axis response
- Highly directional pattern
- Sleek shotgun for distant miking
This condenser microphone capsule is part of the flexible pencil microphones. It is equipped with a highly-directional hypercardioid pickup pattern; obtained using a supercardioid design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis rejection.
The Shotgun Mic Capsule is immune to RF emission and the 19 mm (0.75 in) condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping. It withstands use in very humid environments with ease. It delivers clear sound even when used in very hot or cold areas of the world such as the desert and the arctic.
Excellent off-axis rejection
Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound coming from the sides and back of the microphone. One of the key accomplishments is that we have minimized the often un-linear response of a shotgun microphone due to its side lobes. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications. The sound coming from the sides and back of a shotgun often sounds unnatural but DPA has managed to make these additions to sound natural as well – just damped.
All DPA mics, from the smallest miniatures to this shotgun, feature the same sonic character. This makes it easy to use a mix of hidden miniature mics and boom mics, while a minimum of workload in postproduction. This common sonic character means that you have the same timbre, independently, whether the sound is best recorded via a miniature mic or a boom, plan mic or any other DPA mic you choose to use.
