Microphones Used By Boston Pops For July 4th

One of the things I like to do is point out all things audio that pop (no pun intended) up in popular culture.  The Boston Pops are a classical music ensemble, so when they play live, they most definitely need amplification and lots of microphones.  This article talks about what mics they used this year for their annual 4th of July spectacular in the Hatch Shell at the Esplanade for 400,000 attendees.

This year DPA microphones were the star attraction for microphone geeks.  d:vote 4099 mics were used in the string section, 4023 compact cardioid mics were used on the piano, and the vocalists and narrators wore 4066 omni headset microphones.
