With custom-built capsule mounting, a spring steel wire-mesh grill and a heavy all-metal body, the D 40 is a durable and reliable microphone solution for the active demands of live musicians.
Additionally, the highly-versatile D 40 comes equipped with an integrated stand adapter as well as a mounting bracket, making the unit easily adaptable for use on any instrument including drums, percussion, wind instruments and guitar amps.
