The DPA 2012 Compact Cardioid Microphone is an all-around generalist small diaphragm condenser microphone designed to deliver excellent results for any instrument on a live stage.

Its versatility makes it perfect for covering a wide range of close-miking needs during live performances. With its robust build and reliability, this condenser microphone excels in single-instrument pickup, particularly for instruments in the high-frequency range.

One of its standout features is the unmatched transient response, setting it apart as the ideal option for instruments that produce high frequencies. Surpassing dynamic microphones in this aspect, the DPA 2012 can capture even the most delicate sounds with remarkable accuracy.

Furthermore, the microphone's cardioid capsule boasts DPA's renowned flat off-axis response, ensuring uniform directionality. This characteristic results in a high gain-before-feedback and aids sound engineers in managing bleeding from neighbouring instruments in close proximity. The DPA 2012 captures off-axis sounds naturally and attenuated, enhancing the overall audio quality during performances.
