The best-selling tenor Alfie Boe (pictured) has embarked upon a new phase in his use of microphone technology by switching to Shure’s KSM9 premium vocal condenser mic and UHF-R wireless system.
A former apprentice mechanic whose singing career began when he was urged by a customer impressed by his rendition of operatic arias to audition for the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company, Boe is currently reprising one his most celebrated role – as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables – for a five-month run in London’s West End. Beyond that, he is due to undertake a major UK tour that will run into 2012.
As he commences this hectic period, Boe has made a change in his microphone usage, switching to a Shure KSM9 premium vocal condenser mic and UHF-R wireless system.
The singer commented: “As a singer, I needed a microphone that is true to my voice, and I am delighted to have found the Shure KSM9. It sounds glorious.”
Assessing the KSM9/UHF-R combination, Shure Distribution’s Paul Crognale added: “We feel that the KSM9 and UHF-R is the perfect microphone system for the most demanding of live performers. The fact that Alfie Boe has decided to switch to this incredible detailed microphone bears testament to its sound quality and reliability. And with Shure’s tried-and-trusted UHF-R wireless system in place, we’re every bit as confident as Alfie that he’ll deliver perfect vocals every time!”
