DPA Microphones Strike a Chord with Point Loma Nazarene Media Services Department Relies on d:vote 4099 Instrument Mics for Performances Throughout the Campus
DMN Newswire--2013-1-17--When it comes to making its piano and string instruments shine, the Media Services department at Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) counts on DPA Microphones. The department recently upgraded its aging instrument mics to a stereo pair of DPA d:vote 4099P Instrument Mics for piano, taking its musical performances to the next level.



PLNU's Media Services department is responsible for supplying the PA system for musical performances at the university's chapel services, music department concerts and other campus events. With the school's previous two microphone options posing some challenges--one set was diminishing in audio quality and another did not fit under the lid of the grand piano--PLNU Media Supervisor Bryan Pridmore knew that he had to find a better solution. Having used DPA Microphones at the church he attends, Pridmore was familiar with the audio quality and miniature size of the d:vote, and knew it would be a perfect fit for the university.



"The DPA d:vote microphones were a really good option because they are well isolated from vibration and highlight the quality sound of the instrument," says Pridmore. "Our previous mics had a lot of hissing and buzzing, and were way past usable. The d:vote not only provides an impressive audio reproduction, but also very good isolation and gain before feedback, especially when the piano lid is closed."
