AKG Products On Display At Current Tina Turner World Tour

tinaturner.jpgOn Tina Turner’s current world tour, sound engineer Dave Natale deployed AKG C214 microphones as well as a WMS4500 wireless system to provide outstanding audio quality and versatility on stage. Natale initially tested the C214 mic on a sound check in AKG’s hometown of Vienna, Austria and immediately began using the mic on the current tour.

Dave Natale is no stranger to working with some of the world’s biggest stars, including The Rolling Stones, Lionel Richie, Liza Minelli, Joe Cocker, Van Halen as well as engineer for the 1998 Grammy Awards. On the current Tina Turner tour, Tina, Live in Concert, Europe and the US, Natale fell in love with the wide range of capabilities of the C214.

“While touring Austria on the Tina Turner tour, I had the ability to experiment with the C214 as well as other AKG products and I immediately fell in love with the C214’s features and capabilities,? commented Natale. “I am very impressed with the C214 and they are now my new standard. The older mic’s that I use become harder and harder to find, and it is great to find alternatives. This is truly the first microphone, ever, that I have used flat!?

In addition to the C214 on the Tina Turner tour, the bassist, Warren McCrae, is very pleased with the wireless capabilities of the WMS4500 wireless system. “The exceptional quality of the wireless system delivers a clear and accurate sound without any distortion, interference or latency,? McCrae states. “I have also taken full advantage of the system’s capabilities to save and recall the previous shows on the tour, which has increased production and efficiency and has saved valuable time on the road.?

The C214 is a cost effective alternative to the revolutionary C414 and is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound, such as amplified guitars, with sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well. The C214 also boasts the highest dynamic range in its class.

The WMS4500 is available in two new frequency bands: Band 7 (500-530 MHz) and Band 8 (570-600 MHz) that offer more options for multi-channel systems in today’s crowded RF environment. The system’s components, the SR4500 receiver unit, the PT 4500 emitter, and the HT 4500 handheld microphone unit all offer new features and sleek new construction.
