Where to buy

Product Description

The d:facto™ Linear Vocal mic will capture electrifying performances, replicating the singer’s voice transparently, consistently and thrillingly.

Why the d:facto™ Linear version?

Unlike the regular d:facto™ Vocal mic which has a high end boost built in for vocal accentuation, the d:facto™ Linear’s capsule offers the same clarity and detail, but with a linear frequency response. This linearity means this superb vocal condenser mic is optimised for use in both sound reinforcement and studio recording applications, with its high quality studio capsule hidden under a clever three-layer pop protection grid that both protects the capsule from shock and removes unwanted noises.

DPA adaptability

Its robust handle, capsule and grid assembly features effective shock dissipation, preventing nearly all handling vibrations from reaching the capsule and if you decide to go wireless you can simply uncouple the capsule and grid assembly from the handle and attach it to any professional wireless handle of your choice using one of the ingenious DPA d:facto Adapters.
