The DA 87 really sounds great. A big step up from my Audio Technica and AKG mics. The vocal sound is so transparent and warm, no harshness like with pretty much any other mic in this price range. Very satisfied.
You don’t give a young company a bad review for something like international shipping which is out of their control… and you’re Canadian? You guys are nice up there! Full disclosure, I haven’t recorded with a Dachman yet but plan on getting one after the holidays. The list of interior components is the key. They’re not hiding anything. I’ll do another review after I have a chance to compare side by side but I was intrigued by the description and don’t like unfair reviews…
Ok, the mic is awesome. Just awesome. For those seeking an 87 that won’t break the bank but will pull well beyond its weight, you can’t get much better than the DA87SE. I do wish it came in a case and with a shockmount, but the microphone itself is a certified bad ass. From shimmering acoustic guitar to velvety vocals, this could be my new favorite go to for my small studio.
16 days and no product yet. Their choice of shipping doesn’t provide accurate tracking. I have no idea when I will receive my microphone. I expect better for this price.
We shipped your order in less than 24 hours. You should have received tracking information for it. In looking up your tracking number, it appears things have taken about a week longer than they normally do via a handoff that has to occur between Globegistics and USPS for this international shipment to Canada. Our free shipping option typically takes anywhere from 10 to 20 days for international shipments. Usually it's closer to 10, but this time it appears to be taking a little bit longer. Sorry you've had to wait a few days beyond your expectations. We do have options available for expedited shipping in the future.
We tested these against five other pairs, all of which were between two and four times the price we chose these mics because of their versatility and real world performance - highly recommended.
