DPA d:vote™ Instrument Microphones deliver true, accurate sound for live concert experience.
For almost six decades, FOH Engineer Craig Thomesen has worked with some of the biggest names in the history of music. With a résumé that includes Engelbert Humperdinck, Tom Jones, Bette Midler, Shirley MacLaine, Ann-Margret, Johnny Cash, The Doobie Brothers, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Barry Manilow and Paul Anka, Thomesen is a legend in his own right.
Thomesen has seen technology change quite a bit throughout his 57 years in the industry, and he is always looking to provide his clients with the best sound possible. When he came across DPA Microphones, he quickly became a believer. “I was introduced to DPA’s d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones
five years ago when I was working at a venue that used them as their stock mics,” says Thomesen. “I tried them and I loved them. I went out and bought them as soon as possible and took them out on the road for the Classical Mystery Tour, where we have been using them since.”
