OVERVIEW

Excellent handheld for all common applications.

The Alto DVM5 is an outstanding all-around vocal microphone, ideal for everything from energetic country music to sultry, emotional jazz performances to high-volume rock lead singers. The keys to the DVM5’s flexibility and wide-ranging capability are its outstandingly low noise floor, its ability to easily handle very high SPL levels without objectionable overload or distortion and its wide, smooth frequency response, specially tailored to enhance lifelike vocal reproduction. 

The DVM5 is extremely tolerant of varied climate conditions, making it especially well-suited to outdoor use, plus it comes with a mic clip for convenient attachment.



FEATURES
Designed to enhance vocal reproduction
Low self-noise, high SPL handling
Smooth response with increased vocal intelligibility
Cardioid polar pattern for improved feedback rejection
Internal windscreen for reducing wind and breath noise
Microphone clip included

Very limited use so far, but I put it side by side with a an SM58 for about a minute during a set up. First impressions were that it favored the low mids more than the Shure and "may" be more sensitive to plosives. Seemed pleasing to the ear, and well made - certainly adequate for a back up, and maybe really good for certain users. It's unfortunate that I can't seem to find any specs or response charts. Maybe a one-run from China with an Alto label. At the SDOTD price, it's a steal. I'll add more when I have the chance to wring it out a bit.

In an A/B comparison with a low-end Samson, the Samson's freq range compared comfortably above the DVM5. However, the warmth of the DVM5 approaches that of a moderately priced large diaphragm mic like an AKG C3000. Best use is probably limited to high range vocals to combat any screech factors.

Amazing value

By Roshster

from Plano Estacado

Comments about Alto DVM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

Got the mike on sale, and I was leery. But side by side with Shure SM58 and Senn e835 you would need a meter to discern frequency differences. Good proximity, low feedback, nice roll-off on the lows. If they go on sale again I will grab two more. While they're an "off-brand", the quality seems reliable.

Very Impressed!!!

Comments about Alto DVM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

When I'm not performing myself I run production for other bands in my area and I bought two of these for that purpose. First impressions from sight alone makes singers a little weary to use it but once they've tried it they love it. Especially my drummer who does part of the lead vocals in my band. It is quite resistant to feedback at high levels in the monitors. I'll buy two more once they go back on sale.

Comments about Alto DVM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

Bought this on a SSD . Normal pricing much higher, compared it to an AKG which cost less. Prefer the AKG over this one which has a darker tone. I'll keep this one for the back up mic.

very good microphone

Comments about Alto DVM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

these mics are exactly the same as the Talent DM1 DM3 3pack microphones sold by Parts Express, the internal microphone capsule is the same as are the specs, they both sound great and blow away the competition for cheap microphones, don't be fooled these mics perform like their more expensive brothers

Comments about Alto DVM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

I ordered 2 even though there were no reviews. I plugged them in and the sounded great. They pick up well from a distance. I can't give 5 stars until I try them in a real situation. Thanks for the insane deals Musicians friend.
