  • Advanced Interference Tube Technology
  • Superb stage separation and level control
  • Modular flexibility

The d:dicate™ 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic is a directional microphone. The distinctive sound of this microphone is well balanced. It bridges the gap between the extreme sound quality of the d:dicate™ Recording Microphone Series and our well-known d:screet™ Miniature Microphone Series.

Two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt inside this microphone. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth. The capsules are loaded to the supreme d:dicate™ Microphone series preamps, which gives the sound more air and precision.

Combine it with the preamp of your choice

As with all of the modular d:dicate™ microphones, you can combine the d:dicate™ 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic Capsule with any of our preamps.

The MMP-A Mic Preamp is an ultra-transparent, transformerless preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing. The MMP-C Compact Mic Preamp is an ultra-compact preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing. It has a slightly softer character than the other preamps in the d:dicate™ Microphones Series.

Other preamps include the very small form factor types MMP-E Modular Active Cable (XLR output) and MMP-G Modular Active Cable (MicroDot output), allowing for very slim set-ups. The MMP-G even allows you to match a larger microphone directly to a wireless transmitter.

The d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic is acclaimed for its close-miking excellence and hi-SPL handling. Optimized for onstage use, it has been used on many stages as well as recording sessions. It exhibits a previously unheard blend of clarity, richness and dynamic range.

The d:dicate™ 2011C Compact Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end than the d:dicate™ 2011A. It is also much easier to position than other cardioid mics.

At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Mic into a new configuration. The d:dicate™ 2011 is very widely used as a snare drum mic but fits easily well on many other instruments.
