Wow, just: WOW!

Gaute Dahl, 05.08.2014
This mic is the most amazing piece of gear i have bought in a while. I bought it right before doing sound on a festival and used it extensively on a lot of different genres on lead vocals. During the festival i tried it on pop, rock, funk, folk and death metal vocals on both male and female vocals and in every single instance it seemed to be the perfect mic for the job! For the most time i used it on one of my Sennheiser G3 500 wireless transmitters, but sometimes with a cable through my Midas pro2 with a DL251 stagerack. The sonic difference wasn't HUGE, but i did prefer the sound of the mic through the Midas preamps over the wireless. I have even used it through an old Mackie CFX-board and it still shines through as a superb vocal mic considering the slightly shabby preamps.

I always encourage vocalists to try this mic even though they bring their own mics. Since you have the ability to take of the mic grille and wash it they become less reluctant to use it because of hygenical reasons. One time a vocalist brought her own Neumann KMS 105 (a very nice mic, indeed) to a gig i was doing sound for i managed to convince her to at least try my D:facto, she reluctantly said yes. After the sound check she told me she's going to sell her Neumann and start saving for a D:facto.

Thanks to the good people of DPA for making some of the best microphones out there, really, you guys are heroes!

The king of Kings between live condenser mics

20.01.2017
Much less sensible to feed-back than the competitors, you will still struggle with it of you are too close to the speakers. However, it is all worth it if you can get it under control. As a vocalist, I can say that for the first time, the voice I was hearing in my head was the voice that came out of the speakers. If you have a good quality pre-amp and a very big voice, this is the way to go.
