Lead Singer Jon Harvey has also become a big fan of the d:facto™ mic
. “It’s one thing for me to say how much I like it, but Jon loves it just as much,” says Kaplinski. “The first thing we did was put Jon on the mic and he literally said ‘holy cow.’ Suddenly I was getting really wide stereo mixes that sounded great. From that day forward, we’ve been using it constantly.”
Kaplinski plans on expanding his DPA inventory moving forward. “I’m hoping to get the whole DPA line for the next tour run,” adds Kaplinski. “I’ve heard a lot of great things about DPA’s d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones
and look forward to using them especially on the drums.”
