Audio-Technica rocks Reading and Leeds

Audio-Technica saw models from its Artist Elite and Artist Series ranges in use at last weekend’s Reading and Leeds festivals.

Bands such as Bombay Bicycle Club, Mona, The Blackout and The Pigeon Detectives were among those using the Audio-Technica models.

Bombay Bicycle Club opted for the AE6100 hypercardioid dynamic mic, as did The Blackout’s twin vocalists Gavin Butler and Sean Smith. The Blackout, as well as Mona and We Are the Ocean, also utilised the dual element AE2500 dynamic/condenser mic.

Long-term endorsees The Pigeon Detectives carried the largest selection of Audio-Technica mics over the weekend, with everything from frontman Matt Bowman’s vocal (AE4100 cardioid dynamic) to guitars and drums (AE3000 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser and AT4047 dual-diaphragm condenser) relying on Artist Elite and Artist Series product across a variety of stages.
