FOH Engineer Eric Loomis talks about the 2028 Vocal Microphone from DPA

Eric Loomis is an avid DPA user and is already a fan of the new 2028 Vocal Mic. He loves the 180° degrees off-axis rejection of the mic, the excellent gain before feedback it offers and its durable and high-quality feel.

Manufacturer's Description from DPA (B&K)

 ♦ Built for life on the road

 ♦ Renowned DPA sound

 ♦ Natural vocals – from folk to metal

 ♦ Reduces feedback issues

 ♦ Rugged enough for the live stage

 ♦ Uniform supercardioid directionality

 ♦ Extreme SPL handling

One mic allows you to capture true sound and produce an unforgettable show. Effortlessly. The 2028 Vocal Microphone is designed for the unique challenges of live stage performances. It is a flexible handheld vocal mic, which provides transparent, fantastic vocals to performers from a wide range of markets including live, HoW, broadcast, etc. Use it wired or together with your favorite wireless system, either way, just plug it in and hear the vocals shine like never before.

The 2028 sports a supercardioid capsule with the famously flat DPA off-axis response. This gives the microphone a very high gain-before-feedback and at the same time makes it so much easier for sound engineers to handle bleed from other instruments at close proximity. The 2028 picks up these off-axis sounds in the most natural way.

We have designed a brand new capsule for the 2028, which is an integral part of the mic. It is fixed in its position on top of the shock mount and can’t be dismounted. The newly-designed shock mount and pop filter have been developed specifically for the 2028.

On a live stage, the 2028 will deliver the same open and transparent sound that other DPA microphones deliver. In fact, it needs no (or very little) EQ to sound just like you are standing next to the singer listening to their performance. This allows the singer to use their voice just as if no mic was present, which puts less strain on them. In addition, it allows sound engineers to spend their time shaping the sound experience rather than covering up due to artifacts. This amazing transparency is unique for DPA vocal mics.

The 2028 Vocal Microphone also comes with a newly-designed mic clip.
