Las Vegas, NV (July 30, 2019)—Gwen Stefani’s “Just a Girl” residency at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater in Las Vegas is a hit and it’s packed with her hits, but one place that there’s been no hits is the wireless signal between the chanteuse’s DPA Microphones d:facto 4018V Vocal Microphone and engineer Eddie “El Brujo” Caipo’s monitorworld at stageside.
“Throughout her 20-year career, Gwen has tried many microphone brands and she has definitely noticed a difference with DPA,” he says. “She has told me that she can hear herself more clearly on her in-ears, and this allows me to keep her volume lower and protect her hearing.”
Caipo has used d:facto mics on vocals for some time now. “I’ve known DPA for its high-quality, broadcast, theatre and orchestral applications, but ever since I started using them on big pop tours, I was hooked,” he notes. “The clarity and uncompromising quality I get while rejecting unwanted noise is, by far, the best feature of the vocal mic. Other brands have tried to accomplish this, but end up compromising the sonic result at the end — somehow DPA figured it out.”
Caipo plans to expand his DPA arsenal with the addition of the d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone and d:dicate 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone on the “Just a Girl” residency.
