4099V Violin Clip Microphone


  • Superior gain-before-feedback
  • Wireless compatible
  • Flexible and easy one-hand mounting
  • Holder gentle to the instrument

Violin and viola players will appreciate how gently the 4099 Violin adheres to a prized instrument while its elegantly lightweight, unobtrusive design keeps it from getting in the way of a passionate performance.

The 4099 Violin is a unique clip microphone inheriting the sonic approach from the legendary DPA studio microphones to a new instrument microphone. The 4099 microphone and mounting system is meticulously designed and optimized for the string family. This is to ensure the best possible mount and audio reinforcement is achieved when performing live. The VC4099 Violin Clip also fits other instruments with a body depth between 35 mm (1.4 in) and 55 mm (2.1 in).

Representing years of research and development, the 4099 condenser microphones feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. Fully capable of handling the violin’s dynamic range and subtle details, these microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other world-class microphones.

Despite its tiny, discreet size and elegant, lightweight design, 4099 Violin is extremely rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand, while the mounting system is designed never to mar or scratch the finish of your instrument.

Through the use of DPA's extensive adapter system, the 4099 is compatible with virtually any wireless system and can also be used as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via the included XLR connector.

Fleet owners of 4099s will appreciate the multiplicity of using the microphone for a number of different instruments simply by moving the microphone/gooseneck part to another instrument clip from the range.

With its very flexible design for a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities along with its extremely natural sound, the 4099 is truly a musician’s mic without equal. Continuing DPA’s heritage of sonic excellence, this series of microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and therefore your full range of expression.
