Audio-Technica at the International Guitar Festival

Published: Thu September 18, 2008  News Feed

The recent International Guitar Festival 2008, held at Bath Spa University in August, saw artists and students using a raft of Audio-Technica microphones for live performances, masterclasses and ‘live sound’ seminars during the string-driven fortnight.



As an official IGF sponsor, Audio-Technica supplied microphones used for everything from electric and acoustic guitars to drum kits, sitars and violins. And an eclectic line-up of visiting performers including blues sensation Matt Schofield and legendary bassist Doug Wimbish meant that flexibility from the mic arsenal was key to the festival’s success.

IGF technical co-ordinator Stuart McLean said, “the Audio-Technica microphones performed superbly throughout the event, coping with everything we threw at them. The consistency of performance from mic to mic was outstanding and they worked to give us beautifully natural sound reinforcement, particularly where sensitive acoustic instruments were being used. As hard as it is to pick out one mic model for particular praise, I especially loved using the Audio-Technica AE3000 in a stereo pair for live recordings.”

Harvey Roberts, Audio-Technica’s senior UK marketing manager commented, “we are very pleased to be associated with the International Guitar Festival and to supply microphones for an event of this entertainment and educational quality. To see our products – from the affordable Midnight Blues range to our Artist Elite series – perform to the highest level in such a demanding environment is very gratifying.”
