Built like a tank

Live gigs can be rough on your equipment, so you need a versatile microphone that can take a beating gracefully. The D40 dynamic microphone sports a solid, all-metal body and outer grille that protect its inner works, while its shock-absorbing inner grille shields the transducer against physical damage and high sound pressure levels. If you're playing an outdoor venue, wind noise won't be a concern thanks to the D40's built-in pop filter.

Jack of all trades

This unidirectional dynamic microphone was designed to perform with a wide variety of instruments. Its integrated stand adapter offers a 135º swivel range that allows for precise mic alignment, and you can use the included H440 mounting bracket to mount the D40 directly on a drum shell. This versatile mic can handle high sound pressure levels, so it's perfect for use on percussion, wind instruments, and guitar amps.
