Olympia, WA (January 3, 2013)—The Evergreen Community Church’s Black Lake campus relies on DPA Microphones for its Sunday Morning gatherings, which draw two services of 1,500 people each week.
For the services, the campus uses a series of DPA d:fine Single Ear Omnidirectional Headset Microphones, d:fine 4066 Headset Microphones, d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones and d:screet 4061 Miniature Microphones to project the clear, natural sound of the Pastor’s voice and the supporting instruments of the Evergreen Community Church worship band.
As one of the key FOH volunteers at the Church, Duke DeJong is responsible for everything from ensuring the clarity of Lead Pastor Jim Ladd’s spoken message to mixing the worship band. Also playing a dual role as Church Relations Director for CCI Solutions, an audio dealer specializing in HOW audio, DeJong was able to work with both groups to provide all of the audio gear necessary for the Black Lake Campus.
“My number one requirement for any microphone is always going to be clarity and intelligibility, along with a reasonable cost factor as well,” says DeJong. “DPA is especially incredible for speech, orchestra and acoustical instruments, filling all the needs of a house of worship. We primarily use the d:fine as our go-to speaking mic, the d:vote for our grand piano and the d:screet for our stringed instruments, most often violin.”
