The MMC4017 capsule
is part of the flexible DPA Reference Standard series.
Equipped with a highly directional supercardioid
pickup pattern, obtained using a supercardioid
design with an interference tube that provides excellent off-axis
rejection, the DPA 4017B
combined with the MMP-B preamplifier
is a short and exceptionally lightweight shotgun microphone
that truly measures up to DPA's impressive reputation for accuracy, clarity, and musicality.
Designed for a broad range of applications, the 4017B
is ideal for use with camera systems, in fixed positions at sports facilities, for broadcast/ENG/film booming, and even studio recording environments.

Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound
coming from the sides and behind the microphone
. Minimizing the often very un-linear response of a shotgun microphone
due to its side lobes is one of the key accomplishments of the MMC4017. 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.
