The d:facto™ Vocal Microphone 4018V B SL1 (4018V-B-SL1, 4018V_B_SL1, 4018V/B/SL1) is engineered especially for vocal performances onstage. It captures electrifying stage performances and accurately replicates a singer's voice transparently, consistently and thrillingly. The mic is optimized for use in sound reinforcement as well as recording applications. It offers natural sound, high separation from distant sound sources and SPL handling up to 160 dB. The phantom-powered DPA handle has a sleek look and state-of-the-art electronic design. And, if you decide to go wireless, you can just switch to an adapter for wireless at a quarter of the cost of a new microphone. The modular nature of the d:facto™ seriesallows you to switch both the capsule as well as the adapter. The d:facto™ Supercardioid Capsule features an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern. It is specifically designed to augment the human vocal range. It uses directional characteristic from the best of two worlds – both cardioid and supercardioid patterns. The capsule’s directional pattern and definition gives high separation and true sound color onstage. It is ideal for PA amplification and recording. Frequency response and phase, both on- and off-axis, is linear. You can remove the capsule and replace it with any other d:facto™ or d:dicate™ capsule if your needs change. The mic also features a robust three-stage pop protection grid built into the microphone that removes unwanted noise. Although this version of the d:facto™ Vocal Microphone comes with a d:facto™ Handle for a wired solution, the d:facto™ Vocal Microphone is also the perfect choice to use with your favorite wireless system.
