DPA enhances Vienna Boys Choir in KL
Blurr Wong, owner of Orange Events, used two matched-pairs of DPA 2011C twin diaphragm compact cardioids from DPA’s new Reference Standard series to mic the 30-piece choir. “These mics are unique,” concurs Blurr. “The twin diaphragm capsule design, combined with meticulous engineering, has resulted in the product being a good all-rounder mic. It sounds luscious!”
Blurr also used a sensitivity-selected pair of DPA 4099P instrument clip mics for miking the grand piano, with one mic positioned at each end of the strings and the lid half open. “The 4099’s small but packs lot of punches, allowing you to achieve studio-like quality in a live environment,” continues Blurr. “With the extensive range of DPA mounting accessories available, these mics may also be used with other instruments, giving a flexibility which is extremely useful for rental houses.”
Blurr is also full of praise for DPA’s local distributor, UniAudio Asia. “Apart from DPA’s undeniable sonic excellence, another reason for choosing them was that for the past few years, I've collaborated with the people from (DPA distributor) UniAudio Asia on both technical and commercial grounds. We have natural working chemistry, so the choice wasn't purely product-centric, but value-centric. And working through DPA's authorized dealer in Malaysia, AV United, the value structure was further enhanced.”
Convinced by the pure sound of his new DPA mics, and by the event organiser’s comment that the concert sounded ‘angelic’, Blurr is now planning to add more DPA microphones to Orange Event’s inventory.
