DPA miniature mics enhance Jacky Cheung’s Private Corner
The DPA 4099S and 4099T instrument clip mics were used at the concert for trombone, trumpet and saxophones, while a grand piano was miked with 4061 miniature omnidirectional microphones.
Mike Wong, Cheung’s monitor engineer, chose the cardioid 4099s for their excellent focus on the instrument as well as isolation and rejection from adjacent musicians. “In this concert, we were striving for a natural and uncoloured sound and therefore really appreciated the musical accuracy of the 4099s,” he says.
Adds front of house engineer Daniel Kwan, “Besides the superior sound quality, we like DPA microphones for their mounting and positioning possibilities. The 4099 series has mounts and clips for a wide range of string, brass and woodwind instruments.
“We also appreciate DPA’s uncompromised attitude towards their products and the service provided. The local DPA distributor, DMT, has done a good job supporting us, too.”
