Engineered especially for vocal performances onstage, the d:facto™ holds a supercardioid capsule that is designed to reproduce every nuance of the human voice transparently, consistently and thrillingly.

d:facto™ Vocal Microphones are the ultimate stage mics – no matter if the performance is taking place in a cozy club or the largest concert hall.

Like traditional supercardioid mics, the d:facto™ Series enjoys high side- and rear rejection with a minimum of 9 dB attenuation to the sides. Yet it is not bound by the less desirable aspects of the supercardioid like the uncontrolled and nonlinear rear lobes, which can create feedback from stage wedges, because there is a sudden high frequency peak at the backside of the mic.

The d:facto™ Series has a wider acceptance angle at the front of the mic than most supercardioids. The acceptance angle is identical to a first-order cardioid at ±60 degrees off-center, resulting in the same work field as a cardioid — just with extremely high and uniform side and rear damping.
