Favorite DPA Microphones

I use the d:screet™ 4091 since 2003 on drums in the middle of the kit ..I compress it and it gives me great sounding drums from jazz to real dynamic players...I love the d:vote™ 4099 of course, I always use on the string ensembles. I discovered the d:dicate™ 2011 on this acoustic tour of Simple Minds.. I received some mic's in demo from the best company in the world AMPTEC... the d:dicate™ 2011 is unbelievable for OH but also for snares. and using an ensemble of DPA mic's makes the spill on stage very natural. The d:facto™ Vocal Linear Microphone on the girls vocal is a must for me... very stabile and linear.
