DPA 2012 Stereo Pair

Close miking in stereo in an extremely loud environment is a challenge, but with a 2012 Cardioid Mic Stereo Pair, you can rest assured that you will capture all the details no matter the sound pressure level. With a max SPL, peak before clipping of 156 dB, the 2012 works well on even the loudest instruments.


  • Durable, reinforced construction
  • Excellent transient response
  • Uniform cardioid directionality
  • Outstanding SPL handling
  • Natural and precise sound reproduction

The 2012 Compact Cardioid Mic is the best all-around, generalist mic that you can find to cover a wide range of close-miking needs on the live stage. It is a robust and reliable condenser mic, best for single instrument pickup. Its specifically powerful characteristics make it an extremely flexible mic that will shine on many instruments, particularly those in the high-frequency range.

Durable, reinforced construction

The 2012 is constructed to withstand rough handling on a hectic live stage. It has a thicker, more robust body construction of brass that is very durable and known for its corrosion resistance and tolerance against metal fatigue. In addition to the heavy-duty materials used, the surfaces of the mic handle and grille are treated with a protective black chrome finish, which ensures more graceful ageing.

Unmatched transient response

The 2012, is a professional condenser mic, making it the best choice for those instruments that produce high frequencies. It has a far better transient response than any dynamic microphone, which allows it to pick up the most delicate sound with tremendous accuracy.

Outstanding SPL handling

The 2012 can cope with both extremely high SPLs as well as capture very delicate sounds. With a max SPL, peak before clipping of 156 dB, the 2012, works well on many different instruments and can handle the loudest drums, guitars, horns and more.
