Based in Bardu in northern Norway, Tom Meyer has been tackling live sound engineering projects since 1990 and now runs his own company, TM Tour Production. He first became aware of DPA through the 4011 Cardioid Microphone
and was very impressed with its sound, particularly when he used it to amplify large conferences or kick drums for touring bands.
“I felt that I could gain them much higher than anything else and they sounded so good,”
he says. “When I moved north and started by my own company, I decided to get the best tools possible and gradually started buying DPA. I now have more than 30 of them.”
In recent months, TM Tour Production has been using its DPA microphones on a variety of projects, including live gigs with Hollow Hearts, a folk band from Tromsø.
“The first time I worked with Hollow Hearts, I put up a DPA d:facto™ Vocal Microphone for the band’s singer Ida Løvheim. After singing two lines she stopped and said ‘Tom this mic sounds fantastic!’. That evening went so well and they were so happy with the response from the audience that they now work with me most of the time and I have done more than 40 concerts with them.”
