The d:facto Vocal Microphone is engineered especially for vocal performances onstage. d:facto with DPA handle for wired purposes and SuperCardioid capsule.
It captures electrifying stage performances and accurately replicates a singer's voice transparently, consistently and thrillingly. The mic is optimized for use in sound reinforcement as well as recording applications. It offers natural sound, high separation from nearby sound sources and SPL handling up to 160 dB.
The phantom-powered DPA handle has a sleek look and state-of-the-art electronic design.
And, if you decide to go wireless, you can just switch to an adapter for wireless at a quarter of the cost of a new microphone. The modular nature of the d:facto series allows you to switch both the capsule as well as the adapter.
The d:facto Supercardioid Capsule features an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern. It is specifically designed to augment the human vocal range. This VIP (Voice Isolation Pattern) uses directional characteristic from the best of two worlds - both cardioid and supercardioid patterns. The capsule's directional pattern and definition gives high separation and true sound color onstage. It is ideal for PA amplification and recording. Frequency response and phase, both on- and off-axis, is linear. You can remove the capsule and replace it with any other d:facto or d:dicate capsule if your needs change.
The mic also features a robust three-stage pop protection grid built into the microphone that removes unwanted noise.
Although this version of the d:facto Vocal Microphone comes with a d:facto Handle for a wired solution, the d:facto Vocal Microphone is also the perfect choice to use with your favorite wireless system.
Flexible adapter system
This gives you flexible, simple and affordable possibilities. With the d:facto series, you are no longer bound to one wireless system. As circumstances change, you can just switch your adapter at a quarter of the cost of a new microphone. You won't hear any loss in sound quality.
d:facto adapters work with all leading wireless mic solutions, such as Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony and Wisycom. DPA Microphones' ingenious adapter system is one of a kind in the industry. This modular system protects your investment in fantastic sound for years to come.
