DPA ST2011C Stereo Pair with 2011C Compact Cardioids
- Sensitivity selected pair
- Superb stage separation and level control
- Low profile mounting options
- PeliTM Case transportation and protection
The DPA ST2011C is a complete DPA 2011C Stereo Pair with two handpicked cardioid microphones, selected on sensitivity within ±1.5 dB making several stereo principles like XY and ORTF easy to obtain.
The compact design and controlled directionality of our versatile 2011Cs make them an excellent choice for spot mics for classical recording and on-stage close mics for live sound.
The foam design in the heavy-duty transportation box allows for fast and easy exchange of microphone/accessory inlays.
Included in this kit
Two carefully matched 2011C cardioid microphones, sturdy PeliTM case, holders, grids and windscreens.
You may be interested in combining the ST2011C with:
The lightweight SBS0400 stereo boom addresses the need for quick and flexible ways to switch between stereo principles like AB, XY and ORTF. A central base with rotary joint allows the microphones to be angled equally. SBS0400 has hooks for suspending the boom in wires. The standard length is 40 cm (1.3 ft) but the boom can be further extended. Includes two SM1500 shock mounts (also available as SB0400 without shock mounts).
Cable designed for suspension or minimal visual appearance using Mogami cable and an ultra slim DPA XLR housing, adding only a few millimeters extra length to the microphone.
The legendary, precision handcrafted DPA stereo boom for accurate and repeatable positioning. Has distance markings in centimeters and typical angle offset markings on holder bases. Can be stand mounted or ceiling suspended. Length: 54 cm. Also available as UA0837 without holders.
The SM1500 is a modular double pole construction on an adjustable mic stand base. Use this mount to decouple vibrations to your microphone.
TIP: Combined with the MB4000 Magnet Base, the SM1500 and 2011C make a good solution for on-frame mounting inside the piano with closed lid or on short stick for high isolation.
