Radiohead on Tour with Trantec by TOA Wireless Microphones

Trantec Wireless Microphones
September 2008 — SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Fifteen years after the release of their first single, and 25 million album sales later, Radiohead continues a growth and development that ensures a stream of worldwide sell-out concerts. In fact August saw them return to Canada and the United States for the second time this year following a successful 2 month European summer tour.

Supporting the Grammy Award winning band throughout the tour is the Trantec by TOA S5.5 wireless system. This UHF system can simultaneously operate up to 24 channels in ten banks within its 35MHz window and was chosen specifically for the guitars of Thom Yorke and Ed O’Brien.

Radiohead Instrument Technician Pete Clements states, “The Trantec S5.5 instrument packs have proved to be an excellent choice. We actually bought several sets as I find it easier to allocate a dedicated system for each of Thom and Ed’s guitars. We also bought further sets for use in the States as we had expected problems over there with frequency management, but these Trantec systems have been rock solid. They have been absolutely great anywhere that we’ve been, and as far as the sound is concerned, I have nothing but good things to say. On top of all this I have to praise the battery life, the packs just keep on going.?

As well as the technical benefits of the systems, Pete Clements also praised Trantec’s service back-up, and adds “If we ever raise any query with the equipment, their technical department provides a very high level of support and have been nothing but helpful. And they are always there to offer support whilst we’re on the road.“

Based on Trantec’s award winning S6000 series, the S5 benefits from high quality, true-diversity operation utilizing credit card size belt packs, frequency autoscan, in-built Infra-red data link, single AA battery life of over 10 hours, intuitive LCD displays, and professional metal enclosures for both transmitter and receiver.

Allan R. Lamberti, Vice President & General Manager, says, “The S5 Series promises a powerful set of features and is available in handheld, instrument and lavalier versions. It combines substantial performance capabilities with practical flexibility to suit venues of any size.?
