|DPA Microphones and ResInno, designers of specially engineered piano legs, are teaming up at AES, Booth #629, to highlight DPA’s complete line of instrument microphones. ResInno’s Grand Rossa piano design will be on display at the DPA booth for attendees to not only marvel at the Ferrari-inspired red piano legs, but also to listen to the audio quality they produce through the DPA d:vote 4099P piano instrument microphones and 4006A, 4011A and 2000 Series Reference Standard Microphones.|
Designed by ResInno originator Justin Elliott, the legs on the Grand Rossa have been precisely engineered to produce a distinguishable improvement to the impressive instrument’s tonal quality. To emphasize the enhanced audio abilities of the grand piano, as well as those of DPA Microphones, the companies will fix DPA’s d:vote 4099, 4006A, 4011A and 2000 Series microphones to all areas of the piano at AES. Attendees will be able to listen to each individual microphone through various headphone listening stations connected to each microphone and set up throughout the DPA booth.
DPA’s updated d:vote 4099 is designed for live performance settings requiring high-quality, discreet mics that are effortless to change. Building on the success of the 4099 instrument clip mic series, d:vote features an enhanced shock mount to provide even better absorption. More natural sounding than an internal microphone or pickup, d:vote rejects unwanted noise and accurately captures the true voice of acoustic instruments. The d:vote 4099P piano microphones are sold as a complete system pair on goosenecks, with magnetic mounts that can secure anywhere to the piano.
The Grand Rossa, named after Ferrari’s 1957 Testa Rossa race car, boasts sleek curves forming semi-helixes on the front legs, as well as a prolonged arch stemming from the tail leg that appears to flow through the piano. The Grand Rossa also features a matching music rack, two-tone lid prop and musician’s bench complete with a hand-stitched diamond pattern that matches Ferrari’s interior. The entire ensemble, all painted in the iconic deep Ferrari “Rossa Corsa” red shade, was inspired by the craftsmanship and artistic beauty of the iconic automobiles.
