DPA announces first of three 25th anniversary mic kits

DPA Microphones, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, has launched the first of three limited edition microphone kits available from 1 June 2017.

The first special 25th anniversary kit features a d:facto 4018V vocal microphone in a nickel finish with a handle that displays the 25-year logo. It also includes a free SL1 adapter for Sony, Lectrosonics and Shure products, also in nickel finish.

Only 250 of the kits have been made and 50 of them come in an exclusive suitcase with the 25-year logo engraved. The additional 200 will be delivered in a traditional black zip case. The anniversary offer also includes the traditional black d:facto 4018V with an accompanying free SL1 adapter.

“Innovation remains the key to our success and we are excited to be able to celebrate this momentous event with our clients, friends and business associates this year,” said Kalle Hvidt Nielsen, DPA CEO. “Since our inception, we have always challenged the status quo to make our products better. We are on a never-ending quest to get closer to the perfect sound; it’s in our DNA. We look forward to continuing to bring advanced products to the market. Here’s to the next 25 years!”

DPA’s d:facto 4018V is entirely modular in that the capsule can be removed and replaced with any other d:facto capsule to suit different recording or performance requirements. Also, using DPA’s flexible adapter system, the microphone can be transformed from a wired version with a handle to a handheld wireless microphone capable of seamless integration with all leading wireless solutions from Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Lectrosonics, Line6 and more.
