DPA’s recently introduced hand-held d:facto™ Vocal Microphone
is also proving to be a versatile tool for Vandergoten and his team. Since acquiring four d:facto™ Vocal Microphones from Amptec, DPA’s distributor in Belgium, Vandergoten has deployed them on numerous occasions on both lead and backing vocals.
"I now use them for virtually every band I work with, in both wired
configuration,” he says. “It is an excellent microphone that gives a wonderful, natural sound and is also aesthetically pleasing. Thanks to its minimal crosstalk from on-stage sources such as drums, guitar, monitors, etc, this microphone is proving to be a real workhorse for me and one that I can use in all situations – live, recording and broadcast."
Vandergoten adds that his customers are equally delighted with the d:facto™. "In fact, the artists I work with are always very positive about the whole experience of using DPA microphones," he says.
