DPA Microphones has unveiled new grids with gold and nickel finish for the d:facto vocal microphone.
The new grids are available as accessories to existing systems and can be purchased as metal grids only or as total solutions with foam and pop screen.
Additionally, the nickel option matches the finish available on the Sennheiser 2000, 5200 and 9000 wireless mic systems and comes complete with corresponding adapters.
“We are very excited to present the new gold and nickel d:facto grids for the first time ever here at the NAMM Show,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “We saw a demand in the market to attain the d:facto sound with more than just the traditional black adapter systems, and now we have just the solution with the d:facto, which follows DPA’s continued commitment to providing the best vocal microphone on the market.”
With a true studio sound for the live stage, the d:facto line offers an extraordinarily natural sound with high separation and extreme SPL handling, giving users unlimited possibilities for their performances.
In addition to use with the wired DPA handle, the d:facto II provides singers and engineers with the added benefit of a state-of-the-art adapter system, which allow for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems. With these latest color options are sure to make the d:facto even more popular among live sound engineers.
With its superb linearity in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, the d:facto offers impressive definition and accuracy in reproducing a singer’s voice effortlessly, improving audio performance. Its simple plug-and-play features allow it to reproduce an extraordinarily natural sound, capable of achieving the extreme sound level handling of 160 dB.
As with all DPA mics, the d:facto provides superior gain before feedback and a robust three-stage pop protection grid built into the microphone to remove unwanted noise. It also boasts exceptional isolation from handling noise as well as the ability to accommodate extreme sound levels.
The new gold and nickel grids will be available starting February 2014
