Members of the popular German cabaret act The Popolski Family are so delighted with their recently acquired DPA microphones that they have made a short video extolling their virtues for DPA's German distributor, Mega Audio. The comedy-music show is currently using three DPA d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones to capture the sound of its accordion and brass section. Sound engineer Hans Wollrath, who is also CEO of The Popolski Family company, says: "The performance of these microphones has been outstanding and the hardware, cables and connectors appear to be virtually unbreakable. We have been really pleased with the sound they have delivered. They are very reliable in a touring environment because they are so tough, and they are equally good for video and television appearances because they are so small and unobtrusive." Founded in 2008 by Achim Hagemann under the pseudonym Pavel Popolski, The Popolski Family plays 70 live dates a year in Germany and is seen annually by more than 100,000 people. The show revolved around a pseudo-Polish family of musicians who weave popular rock classics into a comedy framework.
