DPA adds clarity to First Baptist Dallas


First Baptist Dallas has a congregation of over 14,000 members across 12 worship facilities. Its lead audio engineer, Brad Roberts, has recently invested in a set of microphones from DPA.

Roberts chose the 6066 Core Subminiature Headset Microphone to provide a clear sound for Robert Jeffress, the lead pastor of the church. He has become one of the first US users of this microphone. ‘I chose to upgrade the lead pastor’s microphone to DPA’s 6066 because of its impressively small capsule and redesigned headset. For such an unobtrusive solution, the sound quality is impeccable,’ explained Roberts. ‘The 6066 is completely hidden from close-up HD camera shots and its non-reflective boom further improves the aesthetic, as it does not catch undesirable stage light.’

Roberts also invested in 4061 Omnidirectional Microphones for the acoustic pianos and violins with a 4098 Supercardioid Gooseneck Microphone at the podium and 4066 Omnidirectional Headset Microphones which were regularly used during presentations, baptisms and drama productions. The 4018VL Vocal Microphone is used when a handheld mic is needed.

‘DPA’s sound is natural and solid, so I don’t have to EQ as much, which has been really helpful,’ Roberts added. ‘With 25 years of professional audio experience in the live and recording worlds, it’s safe to say I’ve listened to a lot of microphones. I’ve been using DPA for over a decade. I knew when I brought the brand to First Baptist that everyone would hear the difference and I was right. I ended up swapping out one of our previous mics with DPA, and I didn’t tell anyone. The vocalists, musicians and audio team all ended up noticing that the audio quality was more pristine and sounded very natural.

‘With previous microphones, I’ve struggled to eliminate ambient bleed, but with DPA, that problem is solved. When I initially came to First Baptist Dallas, we completely retooled how we miked things. It’s a big space and I brought in DPA to get a better broadcast audio and front of house mix. There’s a reason why I keep going back to DPA, the sound quality is unbeatable.’
