LET THERE BE ROCK!

Upscale liveliness with studio precision

The MTP 440 DM is a versatile, precision-engineered cardioid dynamic instrument microphone. It features a high-performance capsule that delivers a remarkably bright and lively sound. The MTP 440 DM is perfect for miking snare drums, amps and wind instruments. 

MTP 440

Feedback-proof

Like all mics from the MTP series, the MTP 440 DM has an amazingly consistent polar pattern across its entire frequency spectrum. The outstanding rear rejection of -25 dB guarantees super-high gain before feedback.

Maximum ruggedness

The structure-in-structure architecture provides the basis for the MTP series' ruggedness. The outside enclosure of wire-mesh cup and ring is made of sturdy spring steel while the body consists of durable die-cast parts. The inner enclosure is made of resilient but lightweight nylon reinforced ABS. This design ensures the best possible protection for rough daily touring routines.

Guitar Amp Recording

The crisp and modern sound cuts right through the mix

The slight bass roll-off prevents the signal from getting muddy, and the crisp presence plus fast transient response makes the MTP 440 DM shine on guitar amps
