If you are serious about microphones, DPAs need no introduction. Best of the best. I have a comparable pair of Schoeps CMC6/MK41. The DPA are slightly more detailed, the Schoeps are slightly more musical. Totally comes down to preference. Both are great. Read more
In my case the 4011s are cardiod, the Schoeps are hypercardiod, so the DPA kit extended what I already have.
This kit is so fab -- 3 omnis and 2 cardiod. Mix and match depending on the requirement. Plus you get three grids for each of the omnis, to shape the sound. Essential tools. Grids cost over $125 each, were you to buy them separately.
I have recorded a number of choral groups using the DPAs on a Decca-ish tree. What a great sound. Natural, relaxed, detailed.
What doesn't come down to preference is price. DPAs at Studio Economik are essentially the same CDN$ price as DPAs are in US$ from a US source. This means it is 35% cheaper to buy DPAs from Econmik than any US source. Must be due to trade relations between Canada and Denmark.
