The d:dicate 4017C Compact Shotgun Microphone is equipped with a highly-directional hypercardioid pickup pattern; obtained using a supercardioid design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis rejection. Its unique directional pattern is useful when you need exceptionally high directivity with high background noise rejection. At just 154 mm (6.1 in) and 70 g (2.5 oz), the 4017C mic offers impressive accuracy, clarity and musicality in an extremely compact body.
The Rycote Windshield Kit's strong suspension and windshield have been designed specifically to take the mic’s compact size and light weight into consideration. Special soft lyres optimize vibration isolation.
The mic is fully immune to RF emission and the 19 mm (0.75 in) condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping. Designed for a broad range of applications, the d:dicate Microphones Series is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast/ENG/film booming and even studio recording environments.
The elements of the d:dicate 4017C Compact Shotgun Microphone are easily swappable those of with another d:dicate™ or d:facto microphone capsule or preamplifier.
Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound coming from the sides and back of the microphone and minimized the often very un-linear response of a shotgun microphone due to its side lobes. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications.
