London (February 4, 2005)–The popular rhythm, percussion and dance stage show, Stomp, has launched an international touring production of the show which will visit France, Holland, Germany, Japan and China, among other countries, in the coming year. Along for the ride will be a number of Sennheiser ME66/K6 shotgun microphones, purchased from sales and hire specialists SSE, who support the West End and touring productions.
Mike Roberts, sound designer for the show, noted, “We use the Sennheiser ME66/K6 in an array to cover the entire stage. As well as superb audio quality we need mics that are physically robust and able to withstand the moisture, dust and heat of the show. It’s also not unusual for a mic to get hit by a pole or rubber tube wielded by a performer. On our tours, we’ve frequently tried other brands but never found anything to match the combination of quality and durability of Sennheiser.”
