New Orleans (June 7, 2006)–Audix’s new MicroBoom MB1245 was recently put to use at the recent Jazz Fest in New Orleans, LA–one of the city’s first post-Katrina events.
The choir mics were employed in the AIG Gospel Tent, amplifying 44 bands over the course of the six-day festival. Kingston Audio of New Orleans, LA, which provided the sound system, used Audix microphones exclusively on the stage. In addition to the MB1245, Kingston used the Audix OM3 for vocals (both wired and with the RAD-360 wireless), D6 for kick drums, D4 for toms and Leslies, SCX1-c for overheads and SCX1-hc for hi-hats, and i-5 for snares and guitars.
“I was extremely impressed by the mics,” commented Kingston owner Simon Fraser “and, by the end of festival, the ones we used had been purchased. I got a call yesterday from the sound guy at the Greater Antioch Baptist Church, one of the groups that performed on our stage, and they wanted some of those mics, too.”
