DPA Microphones 4018F30
Supercardioid Podium Microphone with 30cm (12”) Boom

OUR PART #  4018F30


The DPA Microphones 4018F30 is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphones Series. It has a highly-directional supercardioid pickup pattern with a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response, with this version sporting a 30cm (approx. 12") boom.

Being modular in design, the DPA d:dicate 4018F Supercardioid Microphone Capsule can be combined with other available lengths of booms and other various components (all sold separately) as well, to meet your needs. If longer booms are required for floor stands with visual elegance, such as DPA's long booms of 75cm or 120cm (30" or 48") (sold separately), which provide a high-quality stage voice mic together with their dedicated accessories (all sold separately).

MMC4018 Microphone Capsule
The capsule's supercardioid pickup shape is frequency independent, securing an identical sound color around the microphone. The usual rear lobe heard on most supercardioids is minimized on this capsule, making it much more isolated without sudden frequency-dependent peaks and dips.

A Truly Flexible Range
At any time, and with no tools required, it's possible to transform the d:dicate™ 4018F Supercardioid Microphone into a new configuration, including the capability to combine it with another d:dicate or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier (all sold separately).

MMP-F Series Modular Active Boom
Offering state-of-the-art preamplifier design and a sleek appearance, you can unite this preamplifier with any modular capsule in the d:dicate Microphones Series (all sold separately). It also delivers excellent radio frequency rejection via DPA-designed impedance balancing with active drive.

  • MMC4018 Supercardioid Microphone Capsule
  • MMP-F30 Modular Active Boom
  • UA0639 Clip for d:dicate
  • Foam Windscreen for d:dicate:
    • Diameter: 19mm (.75")
