SoundPro ’18 Insider #3 Reinhardt, DPA, Bubblebee

Posted on: Wednesday 3rd of October 2018

The third of our special features, bringing you information and insight from some of the exhibitors who you can meet at SoundPro’18 on October 6th

Reinhardt 
The leading manufacturer of quality microphone windshields and accessories for pro users, broadcast, film and TV, as well as the serious enthusiast. “Our goal is to deliver products of the best quality with total customer satisfaction,” says the company’s Rodney Wilkins, who will be on the booth at SoundPro’18.

“Our main background comes from location recording, which bought us to microphone windscreen design and manufacture,” he continues. “Since Reinhardt was taken over by the Ziegenbein group of companies some three years ago, Reinhardt has been very much involved in external product development as well as development of machines both mechanical and electronic, for other manufacturing companies.”

“At SoundPro we will be showing new products aimed at making the sound recordists life just a little bit easier,” says Wilkins. “Visit our stand and have a chat about mic concealing techniques and solving noise problems, as well as our new SportsZep, tailor made for Sports OB.”

Check out their Sports Zep: Designed especially for OB sport productions; rain resistant with Rainhat (included); comes with special low-height and stable microphone stand; built in XLR out.

Wilkins will also be hosting a problem-solving workshop during the afternoon. Can We Fix It? Yes We Can! at 1pm will take a sly at common problems experienced by the sound recordist, and how to sort them out in the most practical way. Bring some AA batteries with you!


DPA Microphones

DPA Microphones has officially introduced the 6000 series – the company’s smallest ever high-end pro-audio microphone capsules as additions to its industry-leading d:screet Lavalier and d:fine Headset Microphone ranges.

The d:screet CORE 6060 and 6061 Subminiature Microphones are just three millimetres in diameter – two millimetres smaller than DPA’s existing 4000 series of miniature microphone products. They also incorporate the recently launched CORE by DPA amplifier technology, so while they may be small, they pack a powerful punch in terms of performance.
