Audio Technica at The GRAMMY's for 14 years

If you're looking for microphones used by some of the world's biggest current artists, Audio-Technica are the right direction

For the 14th year, Audio-Technia maintained its status as the hallmark of superior sound at the GRAMMY awards show for both the live show and broadcast. Supplying over 150 of its acclaimed microphones, including an impressive array of hand-wired mics and Artist Elite 5000 Series UHF Wireless Systems. This year especially, the AT4050ST Stereo Condenser Microphones have come to favor the mixers because of their rich stereo drum overhead sound.

The Performances

Artists performing throughout the evening who used Audio Technica's Artist Elite 5000 Series included Bruno Mars, B.o.B and Janelle Monae, who shared the stange to perform a medley of their recent hits; Esperanza Spaulding, who played with the 2011 GRAMMY Jazz Band; and Bob Dylan. Dylan shared the stage with folk rock up-and-comers, Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons, who used the hard-wired AE5400s, along with Barbara Streisand who delivered a breathtaking performance of "Evergreen".

The backline mic complement of A-T wired microphones included additional AE5400s for backing vocals, horns and rotary speaker cabinets (high and low); ATM350 cardioid condenser clip-on microphone for strings; AE5100 cardioid condenser microphone for hi-hat and ride: AT4040 stereo condenser microphone for overheads; and AT4080 phantom-powered bi-directional ribbon microphones and AT4050 multi-pattern condenser microphone for guitar cabinets.

The Pro's

FOH engineer at the GRAMMY's, Ron Reaves stated,

"It's always a pleasure to see Audio-Technica's team here, to provide both microphones and on-site support. We've been using A-T on the show as long as I have been FOH, and most notably the new AT4050ST has proven itself as a great stereo overhead mic. It's the kind of forward thinking product development that kees Audio-Technica as one of the premier microphone manufacturers."

Mark Linett, who has a rich background in both studio and live engineering and has worked with artists such as Brian Wilson and The Red Hot Chili Peppers told Audio Technica that,

"...this is the second year I've been part of the GRAMMY's and I'm glad that Audio-Technica is an intricate part of the show, supplying product and on-site support. Audio-Technica products have definite won me over, I have great admiration for the extensive product line, and I can definitely hear the difference when using their wired and wireless microphones."
