Ste Kerry: on tour with Fightstar, My Vitriol & sE

Published: Mon August 03, 2009  News Feed

Front Of House engineer Steve ‘Ste’ Kerry describes how sE gear helps him out both on the road and in the studio…

Ste in the studio

Steve ‘Ste’ Kerry started his career as a front of house engineer while studying in Manchester in 2002. He has since ‘slaved away’ around the country quickly and is becoming a rising star in the UK FoH engineering scene. He has worked with a large portfolio of acts including Fightstar, My Vitriol and Robots In Disguise. He also runs a recording studio and helps advise at institutions like the Futureworks Media Centre.

Ste uses a wide selection of sE gear – including a Reflexion Filter, sE4 Pair, Gemini and Icis mics – both in the studio and on the road.  Initially though it was sE’s revolutionary Reflexion Filter that grabbed his attention…

”I used a Reflexion Filter at a friend’s studio and was extremely impressed,” he says. “I got one for myself and then decided to try out the Gemini and Icis mics and again was very impressed with both.
Particularly with the Icis, the price to quality ratio is really astounding – I use it alongside u87's quite happily.”

“I take out my sE4s to gigs primarily for overheads but sometimes for other jobs such as percussion – it really depends on the bands,” Ste continues. “I have been impressed with all the sE products. The Gemini and the Icis are really versatile in the studio and get used on a lot of things: vocals, as room mics, occasionally on guitars – anything you throw at them they handle fantastically. I have used the Icis, Gemini and sE4s on acoustic guitars and cannot choose between them, they all bring different qualities to the table, all of which I think sound great.”

Overall though it is still Ste’s first love that stands out – the Reflexion Filter…

“I no longer have to worry as much about where I'm going to record vocals! The size of the Reflexion Filter is an instant winner – such a brilliant product. But overall, the price of the microphones and equipment made by sE is really impressive. It gives more scope to have more mics without having to worry about substituting quality.”

Ste has a busy year ahead with lots of tours and festivals booked so expect to see him – and his sE gear – at a gig near you soon…
