Elton John uses Audio-Technica AE6100 Microphone at the Grammy Awards

Elton John performed live at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday, 28 January, 2018, broadcast live on the CBS Television Network.

The legendary British recording artist employed the Audio-Technica AE6100 hypercardioid dynamic handheld microphone for his lead vocal.

According to Audio-Technica, the Artist Elite AE6100 hypercardioid dynamic vocal microphone delivers clean articulation, fast transients and high-output, assertive sound for vocalists. With a polar pattern tailored for impressive on-axis response, the microphone offers maximum feedback rejection and anti-shock engineering for low handling noise.

For protection against vocal plosives, the mic’s steel outer grille is lined with steel mesh and a layer of open-cell foam. A foam disk positioned on top of the element assembly provides the final layer of “pop” protection.
