ANAHEIM – DPA Microphones is showcasing the latest versions of its d:facto™ Vocal, d:vote™ 4099 Instrument and d:dicate™ Recording Microphones at the 2015 NAMM Show (Hall A, Booth 7113). Representatives will also be on hand to discuss the company’s new d:screet™ Necklace Microphone, which has been nominated for a prestigious 2015 Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award.
Following DPA’s continued commitment to providing the best vocal microphone on the market, the d:facto Vocal Microphone offers a true studio sound for the live stage. In addition to a superior natural sound, high separation and extreme SPL handling, singers and engineers are also afforded the choice between the company’s wired handle or its state-of-the-art adapter system, which allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems. The mic features DPA’s remarkable triple stage pop filter design and is available with black, golden and nickel grids.
Employed in top recording studios and live applications around the world, DPA’s d:dicate 4011 Cardioid Microphone is perfect for both close-ups on individual instruments and vocals as well as for spot-miking symphonies. Its components have been carefully selected to provide optimal neutrality, accuracy and extremely low distortion at even the highest sound levels. Additionally, the d:dicate 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone is optimized for use on stage, with a linear off-axis response and a smaller frequency bandwidth, which increases stage separation and gain-to-feedback, making the mic level easier to control.
Available with adapters suitable for a vast majority of instruments, the company’s d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones can be purchased individually or in four-piece or 10-piece Rock and Classic Touring Kits. Despite its tiny, discreet size and lightweight design, the DPA d:vote is rugged and stable. It features a versatile and extendable gooseneck, sturdy shock mount and a detachable heavy-duty cable, making it ideally suited to the rigors of touring and live performance. Intended for fast-paced settings, the mic can easily be unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with one hand. Additionally, the d:vote’s mounting system is designed to be extremely gentle, never marring the finish of any instrument.
With a nomination for a TEC Award, the d:screet Omnidirectional Miniature Necklace Microphone has been gaining attention throughout the audio industry. The mic, which can be mounted and removed quickly by untrained talent without a sound expert nearby, addresses a previously untapped corner of the market. Especially useful for instances when mounting and consistent audio output are the primary requirements, the d:screet Necklace Mic is ideal for situations requiring quick costume changes, such as pop concert tours. Featuring DPA’s legendary d:screet 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Capsule in a soft rubber necklace, the d:screet Necklace Mic is available in black, white and brown and in lengths of either 18.3 or 20.9 inches.
