DPA d:facto™ 4018VL Handheld

The Fraternal Twin to the 4018V

Actually that line is pretty accurate. Everything about the 4018VL is exactly alike with one exception ... the frequency response. It is still a condenser, has the same pop filtering system and same suspension. It still utilizes a killer super cardioid pickup pattern that has a super small off axis response. It has the same amazingly high Max SPL of 160 dB. They have the same frequency range BUT DPA did something interesting, they gave us a mic with a flat frequency response basically giving the engineer a clean slate. Some like that, some don't. So renting the 4018V and VL would be worth figuring out what you would favor more.
