InfoComm 2012: DPA introduces d:vote range of instrument microphones

DPA Microphones is showcasing its d:vote range of instrument microphones at the InfoComm 2012.

Building on the design of the company’s 4099 instrument clip mic series, the d:vote is intended for use in live performance settings requiring high quality, discreet mics that can be changed easily. The d:vote also features an enhanced shock mount to provide even better absorption.

Furthermore, the new d:vote instrument microphones now feature a cable available in heavy duty 2.2 mm (0.087 in) and 1.55 mm (0.061 in) diameter versions, which can be detached from the end of the gooseneck. Additional flexibility is available via an extension unit for the gooseneck supplied with the mic, which lengthens its neck by 50 per cent. 

“After a long introduction, the 4099s have more than tripled in sales over the last two years, and continue to post strong sales numbers,” said DPA CEO Christian Poulsen. “When upgrading our mics to the d:vote, we have listened to what our users want. The improvements make it even more durable and less sensitive to noise. The new extension unit brings maximum value to demanding applications, achieving just the right sound from the instrument.”

The d:vote condenser mics feature supercardioid polar patterns for highly uniform off-axis frequency response and optimum gain before feedback, while the d:vote MicroDot connector and more than 35 DPA adapters are designed to ensure compatibility with almost any wireless system. The product can also be used as a standard 48V phantom-powered microphone via its supplied XLR connector.
