TRAIN RELIES ON AUDIO-TECHNICA MICROPHONES FOR LIVE SHOWS

train — Longtime Audio-Technica endorsers keep their sound tight with A-T wired and wireless mics —

Pop/rock hitmakers Train have experienced quite the creative and commercial renaissance since reemerging from a three-year hiatus in 2009. Once again topping the charts and packing venues, Train’s onstage sound is more important than ever, and the band continues to turn to Audio-Technica for wired and wireless microphone solutions. In fact, Train have been loyal A-T endorsers for a decade, and this relationship continues as the band rolls through North America and Europe this fall.

Train’s current mic setup includes the following models: Audio-Technica’s Artist Elite® 5000 Series wireless systems with AEW-T5400 transmitter for lead vocals, AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone for lead and backing vocals, ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone for snare, AE5100 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone for hi-hat, ATM450 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone for overheads, and ATM250DE Dual-Element Instrument Microphone and AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone for guitars.

The band’s FOH mixer Rob Thomas stated, “This is simply the best sounding microphone selection I’ve had in years. I love them all. The ATM650 is like a great instrument mic on steroids, and it just sounds perfect on the snare. The ATM450, which we use for overheads, is one of my favorite condensers – a little side-address mic that sounds amazing on anything and will handle some serious SPL. The AT4050 is really round and packs a punch – I’ve used it on everything from overheads to guitars, and it makes everything sound huge.

Monitor Engineer Rob Greene added, “The dual-element ATM250DE – whose dynamic and condenser elements we split into two channels on the console and blend or ride separately – just sounds great on guitar, and there are never any phasing problems. And the 5000 Series wireless with AEW-T5400 mic/transmitter vocal mic setup is great with the wedges – I can get a really high SPL and a full sound without feedback and I think it sounds better than wired.?
