Stow, OH (August 20, 2013)—For Justin Timberlake’s recent stadium tour promoting his album, The 20/20 Experience, FOH mixer Andy Meyer chose to use the Artist Elite 5000 Series Frequency-agile True Diversity UHF Wireless System with an AEW-T6100 transmitter and AEW-R5200 Reciever from Audio-Technica.
“The AE6100, as well as its wireless counterpart, is an amazing-sounding microphone, and it really works for Justin’s vocals,” said Meyer. "At the same time, he says, the AE6100’s live performance characteristics are equally impressive. “It has great rejection, especially with the kind of volume we’re getting from the crowds on this tour. There’s very little bleed from the stage or the venue that gets in there, which really helps keep Justin’s vocals clean for FOH and Monitors.”
Meyer also used A-T mics in other applications on the tour, including the ATM25/LE (Limited Edition) Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone on toms, and the AE5400 Cardioid Condenser Handheld Microphone—normally a handheld vocal microphone—on the top and bottom of the snare drum.
