    Gloria Estefan’s long-time monitor engineer, Craig Melvin, relies on the precision of DPA Microphones to eliminate noise and capture the natural sound of the live instruments used during Estefan’s orchestra-based performances.

    While my first microphone was a model 99-45460 from Lafayette Radio Electronics (read about it here), many of the mics owned by my garage bandmates were from Radio Shack, usually the Realistic Highball-2. Some of you likely had at least one as well—it was a popular mic in the early 1970s that offered acceptable quality at a good price. “The Shack,” as we called it, had a number of in-house brands, including Archer (antennas and accessories), Duofone (telephones and accessories),… View this post
