Bass microphone kit with flexible mounting options

Perfect for PA amplification and live recording of acoustic upright bass, the DPA d:vote 4099B bass mic kit offers a sound that is considerably more natural than an internal microphone or pick-up, and it has several excellent placement possibilities. The 4099B is a unique instrument condenser microphone and mounting system that is meticulously designed and optimized for the double bass. Fully capable of handling an acoustic bass's dynamic range and subtle details, these microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA's other world-class microphones. 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 instrument condenser microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and therefore your full range of expression.

DPA's Core technology improves on the legendary audio quality of their miniature microphones mics through minimized distortion across an expanded dynamic range, resulting in increased audio clarity and openness of sound. With a water-repellent nano-coating of the housing, a hermetic seal of the amp, and dual gold plating of the diaphragm, all CORE by DPA technology microphones are IP58 certified allowing for usage in a variety of demanding applications.


  • Superior gain-before-feedback
  • Natural sound, easy to blend with pick-up
  • Flexible and easy mounting
  • Mount that does not interfere with acoustic sound
