AKG Delivers Full Line Of Microphones to Dweezil Zappa, Building Upon Performances And Preserving Frank Zappa’s Legacy

Following in his father’s footsteps, Dweezil Zappa is a proud user of the full line of AKG professional microphones. Ensuring Frank Zappa’s AKG endorsement lives on, AKG presented Dweezil with the Austrian-engineered mics so he may continue providing his fans with quality sound on tour and in the studio, whether playing the elder Zappa’s hits or introducing his latest single to fans.

Kicking off Dweezil’s two-month international summer tour, the AKG mics replaced the majority of Zappa’s full arsenal of vocal and instrument microphones. AKG presented Dweezil and his front of house engineer with eight AKG D 40 Dynamic Instrument Microphones, two C 451 B’s, five C 518 M clip-on percussion mics, four C 214’s, four C 414 condensers, two C 4000 B’s, two C 519 ML miniature condensers and nine D5 and D7 dynamic handheld mics.

“Mechanically, the AKG’s are absolutely, phenomenally brilliant,? stated Glynn Wood, FOH engineer for Dweezil. “They are really rugged and I’ve not had one break or fall off, even on the tom toms. The sonic and mechanical quality presented in AKG mics exceeded our expectations and are truly excellent.?

Starting in Mexico City, Mexico, Dweezil’s latest tour travelled across the United States up the West and East Coasts, over to Europe through the UK, Italy, France, Amsterdam, through Tel Aviv, Israel and finalized the trip in Tokyo, Japan at the Fuji Rock Festival.

Wood continued, “I’ve been completely delighted with the response and results from all of the AKG products, and Dweezil and the entire crew are looking forward to starting the next leg of the tour in November.?
