The DPA d:vote Instrument Microphone is just one of hundreds of microphones in our rental inventory.  It is available in wireless and hard-wired formats, and has mounting options for string instruments, guitars, and horns.

All d:vote Instrument Microphone rentals include mic clips and cables (if applicable).

Perfect for PA amplification and live recording of acoustic guitar, mandolin, ukulele and dobro, the DPA d:vote offers practically unlimited placement possibilities as well as a sound that is considerably more natural than an internal microphone or pick-up.

The d:vote is a unique clip microphone inheriting the sonic approach from the legendary DPA studio microphones to a new instrument microphone. The d:vote microphone and mounting system is meticulously designed and optimized for the guitar family. This is to ensure the best possible mount and audio reinforcement is achieved when performing live. The d:vote fits instruments with a body depth between 35 mm (1.4 in) and 122 mm (4.8 in).

Representing years of research and development, the d:vote condenser microphones feature supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. Fully capable of handling the guitar’s dynamic range and subtle details, these microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other world-class microphones.

Despite its tiny, discreet size and elegant, lightweight design, d:vote is extremely rugged. The versatile gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand, while the mounting system is designed never to mar or scratch the finish of your instrument.

Reduce cable clutter on stage by using the DAOd:vote Double Cable. The cable carries both the d:vote mic extension cable and a pick-up jack connection in one dual cable run in a nylon sock. The jack uses high quality Mogami cable and gold Neutrik connectors. At the instrument end there is a right-angled connector. The microphone extension is the DPA miniature cable.

Through the use of our extensive adapter system, the d:vote is compatible with virtually any wireless system and can also be used as a standard 48V phantom powered microphone via the included XLR connector.

Fleet owners of d:votes will appreciate the multiplicity of using the microphone for a number of different instruments simply by moving the microphone/gooseneck part to another instrument clip from the range.

With its very flexible design for a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities along with its extremely natural sound, the d:vote is truly a musician’s mic without equal. Continuing DPA’s heritage of sonic excellence, this series of microphones achieves the purest reproduction of your instrument and therefore your full range of expression.
