DPA Mics, musical, instruments
Melody House Musical Instruments will be DPA Microphones’ new distributor in Dubai. The appointment is part of a rebranding process that will see Melody House move into the pro-audio sector to complement its MI roots. Sound engineer Greg Cargopoulos from Melody House, who has worked with DPA microphones, called them "a life-saver in many situations".
"I have been working as a sound engineer for many years, often on corporate events where there are several headband and lavalier microphones on stage at one time. The thing I like about these mics is how the frequency response is so neutral. The design is always to be as neutral as possible, rather than have a coloured frequency response. This, coupled with a flat-response loudspeaker system, is the way to get maximum gain-before-feedback, as it gives the engineer maximum control. The microphones are very well thought of in terms of design. They sound great and the way they are mounted is very clever and innovative," he commented.
Melody House will look to raise the profile of DPA in Dubai, and has a substantial stock of demo mics for all applications to give their customers. The company also hopes to launch a retail shop in Dubai soon.
"Melody House will be a really good partner for us in Dubai as they have a well established network," stated DPA’s regional sales manager, Michael Trolle. "In addition, opening a retail store gives us an opportunity to grow our instrument mic market, together with Melody House. The other high-end brands that they represent are a very good match with DPA."
