Newest Microphone Series by DPA Microphones Presented At NAMM 2019
Making its NAMM debut (North Hall, Level 2, Booth 18507), DPA Microphones will be showcasing its smallest high-end pro audio microphone capsule, the d:screet CORE 6060, 6061 Subminiature Microphones and the d:fine CORE 6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone. In addition, DPA’s d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone and d:facto 4018VL Linear Vocal Microphone will be used during live in-booth performances throughout the show. DPA will also be participating in a variety of educational sessions as well as supplying mics for several NAMM events.
Measuring in at three millimetres (0.12 inches) in diameter, the Subminiature mics may be small, but they are powerful in terms of performance. All three microphones incorporate the company’s TEC-nominated CORE by DPA amplification technology and have achieved an IP58 waterproof rating, which provides water and moisture resistance. In terms of technical specifications, all three 6000 series capsules are omnidirectional and have a frequency range of 20 Hz - 20 kHz. The d:screet 6060 lavalier has a noise floor of only 24 dB(A), while the d:screet 6061 lavalier and d:fine 6066 headset have noise floors of only 26 dB(A).
The d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone also incorporates CORE by DPA amplification technology. The d:vote CORE 4099 line is designed for use with every woodwind and acoustical instrument. Known for its discreet size and versatile mounting/clip options, the d:vote CORE 4099 mic is a great fit for a variety of applications ranging from the studio and theatre to live performances. For the d:vote CORE mics, the dynamic range has gone from 100 dB to 108 dB for the Loud SPL and from 95 dB to 109 dB for the Extreme SPL.
DPA is providing all of the mics for the outside Yamaha Grand Plaza main stage, including d:dicate™ 4011 Cardioid Microphones, d:dicate 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphones, d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphones and d:facto™ Vocal Microphones, and will be on hand to help the bands with any miking questions or techniques.
DPA is also contributing to Dynaudio’s Unheard Project, which gives new artists the chance to record their music and get exposure on a global scale. Artists will get the opportunity to perform and record live in the Dynaudio Unheard studio throughout the show using a wide selection of DPA instrument and vocal mics, right in the middle of the Grand Plaza area.
