Raiding the Rock Vault Continues to Thrill Audiences with HARMAN’s AKG Microphones

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Recently rated by The Las Vegas Review Journal as “Best Musical 2014”, “Raiding the Rock Vault” uses HARMAN’s AKG Microphones to provide the ultimate classic rock concert experience in Las Vegas. Written by GRAMMY™-winning producer David Kershenbaum and John Payne of Asia, this 2-hour experience weaves an entertaining storyline with some of the greatest rock hits of the ‘70s and ‘80s.

The full microphone system for “Raiding the Rock Vault” comprises 16 DMS700 V2 wireless channels connected to all the guitars through PT700 V2 transmitters, 12 WMS4500 wireless channels for vocals, with HT4500 D5 and D7 capsules for the singers and PT4500 transmitters for the actors. Twelve channels of IVM4500 are used for in-ear monitoring, while AKG’s HELICAL antennas take care of transmission.

“Everything has worked great, and that’s the most important thing,” said Keith Marks, production coordinator for “Raiding the Rock Vault.” “When we listened to the quality of AKG’s wireless microphones, we found that even artists who have never worked with wireless microphones before are loving it. The DMS system sounds perfect, on par with the quality of wired microphones.”

The “Raiding the Rock Vault” cast, which recently added Doug Aldrich of Whitesnake and Dio, performs over 200 shows annually. Naturally, the intensity and repetition of these shows require the production crew to maintain an inventory of extremely durable sound equipment.

“It’s a testament to the quality of the equipment, when it keeps performing great, day in and out,” Marks said. “Also, AKG provides incredible customer service: I can get Joe Wagoner or anyone else at AKG on the phone whenever I need them, which is an invaluable benefit.”
