Old Lyme, CT (December 12, 2014)—Pop artist Kylie Minogue spent her autumn touring Europe, accompanied by sound company Eighth Day Sound, who supplied a microphone package featuring Sennheiser SKM 5200 mics with MD 5235 capsules and EM 3732-II receivers, with monitoring via Sennheiser SR 2050 IEM transmitters and EK 2000 IEM belt packs.
“The SKM 5200/MD 5235 combination really suits this show, as Kylie spends a lot of time out in front of the PA system on the B stage,” said Kevin Pruce, Kylie’s Front-of-House engineer. “Other combinations gave me less headroom, while the size and weight of the microphone are also very important.”
“Sennheiser—what can I say? We have a working relationship with Mark Saunders and the team going back over 12 years and the support on the 2014 tour has been, as ever, exemplary. Kylie hasn’t picked up another brand of microphone by choice since the first time we tried them—the weight, feel and audio quality are all perfect for her,” said production manager Kevin Hopgood.
