Deaf Havana conquer Clapham Grand with Audio-Technica20 May 2014
British rock act Deaf Havana recently sold out a headline UK tour and have also confirmed appearances on the Reading and Leeds festival main stages.
The band’s front of house engineer Ben Hammond uses Audio-Technica microphones on stage with M50 headphones and an Allen & Heath iLive system to mix the live shows.
Hammond recently filmed a video interview with Audio-Technica at London’s Clapham Grand venue, where the band performed. In the interview he explains his choice and use of Audio-Technica mics across the Deaf Havana backline and the ease with which the Allen & Heath iLive surface and iDR MixRack have fitted into his workflow over the last few years.
The mics used by Hammond for Deaf Havana’s live show include:
ATM250DE dual-element dynamic/condenser (drums)
AE2500 cardioid dual-element dynamic/condenser (guitars)
AT4050 stereo condenser (guitars)
AE5400 cardioid condenser (lead vocal)
AE4100 cardioid dynamic (vocals)
ATM610a hypercardioid dynamic (choir vocals)
Hammond’s video is live on the Audio-Technica YouTube channel.
