Legendary Country Music Duo Brooks & Dunn Top The Charts With AKG Wireless Microphone Systems

Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are two of country music’s most successful artists and together, Brooks & Dunn have recorded 23 # 1 hits, sold over 30 million records and have won more than 80 major industry awards. Brooks & Dunn are currently on tour celebrating their 10th studio album titled, “Cowboy Town? and their monitor engineer, Kurt Springer, has selected a complete AKG wireless system that encompasses over 30 AKG products for the tour.

Brooks & Dunn have relied on AKG products for a number of years and are currently using a diverse collection of wireless products, including an AKG WMS4500 wireless system, AKG 520 headset microphone, AKG D7 handheld microphone, AKG IVM4 in-ear monitoring system as well as the vintage AKG C12 tube microphone.

The selection of over 30 AKG products for Brooks & Dunn was an easy decision for Springer as the headsets were a natural fit for the famous country duo. The ergonomic design of the WMS4500 and the outstanding sonic quality of the D7 are a perfect combination for showcasing the talents of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn.

“Brooks & Dunn are loyal AKG users and have used vintage C12 microphones for vocal recordings in the past, so when they needed headset mics, the first question was ‘Does AKG make a headset mic?? commented Springer. “Regarding the selection of the WMS4500, the engineers selected the AKG system for its ergonomic design and durable construction. We use the system extensively and the mute switch is very useful for us with guitar changes, sharing a pack for multiple instruments and the ability to mute and un-mute tech mics.

“We still have a 10 year old system of WMS 4000’s for backline that simply won’t quit,? continued Springer. “The AKG WMS 4500 wireless systems has three aspects that separate it from the rest: legendary sonic quality, bulletproof durability and state-of-the-art transmission quality,? Springer concludes.

In addition to Brooks & Dunn, Springer has a versatile and extensive engineering resume that includes world renowned artists such as Eric Clapton, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones and Guns n’ Roses.
