A truly amazing beatboxing mic

The d:facto™ Vocal Mic

Your epic beats need an epic mic

You're probably familiar with dynamic mics and might even rely on them for your performances. Dynamic mics are tough, feedback resistant, have low handling noise and can handle the high SPLs that come from the close up beat work. While all this is true for dynamics, you can find condenser mics that also meet these specific requirements. In fact, some condenser mics have extra, amazing qualities that can take your beats to the next level.

Introducing a truly amazing beatboxing mic – the d:facto™ Vocal Microphone – a studio condenser mic built for the live stage. In fact, you might not be aware, but the d:facto™ isn't completely new to the beatboxing stage. In the video below, you can watch 2018 World Beatbox Champion, Alexinho perform using one.

Clear sound - from high hat to throat bass

In addition to all of the qualities of dynamic mics listed above, the d:facto™ brings a lot more to the beatboxing stage. But don't take our word for it, listen to Sinjo, Head of Sound at Swissbeatbox break down why the d:facto™ was chosen as the mic for all performances during the Grand Beatbox Battle 2019 in Warsaw, Poland, April 12-15.

It [the d:facto™] has a very rich and clean bass response. Things like lip rolls, kicks and throat bass come through very powerful with a full sound that is not overwhelmed by the low-mid frequencies. In other words, your bass sounds will be very clean and powerful without being distorted and muddy.
