The DPA 3511 Cardioid Standard Stereo A-b Kit. Superb matched pair of 4011-TL Cardioid Microphones with important accessories.
The DPA 3511 is a complete stereo kit for a broad range of recording applications using two 4011-TL Cardioid Microphones, carefully matched within +/- 1 dB on frequency response, sensitivity and self-noise. These cardioids are exceptionally linear in their frequency response – also off axis, giving you the natural experience. Several standard set-ups such as ORTF and XY are possible. The 4011-TL mics handle very high SPL and will therefore allow close placement as well as more distant. Often used for piano recordings of jazz or pop with a placement closer to the hammers or as overheads for drums. The kit includes 2 windscreens, 2 very effective shock mounts, a precision-crafted stereo boom for secure mounting of microphone pairs for A-B stereo recordings and a spacer to allow XY or ORTF stereo set-ups on the boom.
The main features of the DPA 3511 include:
High SPL Capability – 158dB
Great for spot-miking on every kind of live music
Often used for A-B stereo recordings (pair), close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals
