COMBINE WITH THE PREAMP OF YOUR CHOICE

As with all of the modular recording microphones, you can combine the 4006 Omni Mic Capsule with any of the preamps.
The MMP-A Microphone Preamp is an ultra-transparent, transformerless preamp with active drive for impedance balancing.
The MMP-C Compact Microphone Preamp is an ultra-compact preamp with active drive for impedance balancing. It has a slightly softer character than the other preamps in the Recording Microphone 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.

Whenever a small, lightweight and inconspicuous microphone for top-quality recording is required, the 4006C Compact Omni Mic is the perfect choice. The mic design is compact and clean.
