Full-bodied sound from a small-bodied mic: wherever a small, lightweight, inconspicuous microphone for top-quality recording is required, the compact design and clean, transparent sound of our versatile 4006C makes it the perfect choice. They are particularly popular as A-B stereo pairs in concert halls where quality recordings can sometimes be compromised by classic architecture.

The 4006C can be mounted, hung or concealed to create clean, transparent recordings. It is ideal in theatres, opera and concert halls or places of worship where there is a live audience, and for film applications, both in the studio and on location. These mics are also popular with musicians for close-miking instruments such as double bass, trumpet and piano. At the same time they are wonderful for ambience miking on soundstages, in sports stadiums and other environments where audience sound needs to be recorded.

Several tools in one: a selection of acoustic modification accessories, including nose cone and interchangeable protection grids, allows the 4006C to be acoustically transformed into different microphone versions, making it the most multifaceted mic in your collection and a tremendous value. By simply changing a grid, it is possible to gain several unique frequency responses and directional characteristics from a single mic. Furthermore, these grids and elements will not produce any phase shift, noise or distortion that would otherwise be introduced by an electrical filter.
