In response to rider requests, SSE Audio Group has recently added a significant quantity of Audix D6 drum mics, OM7 handheld vocal mics and TM1 measurement microphones to its hire stock. Audix microphones are distributed in the UK by SCV London. “The D6 is becoming a very popular kick drum mic, which many of our clients have been requesting. They are turning up on almost 50% of the channel lists of bands that are appearing at the festivals we are providing equipment for this summer,” said SSE assistant warehouse manager Chris Blackburn (pictured). “They are a great alternative to the other kick drum mics that are requested and we’re confident that we could use the D6 as a suitable substitute on pretty much every show we do.” 

Audix co-founder Cliff Castle recently named the D6 as the company’s single greatest product it’s ever done for PSNEurope’s just released PSNLive business report. Check out the Best. Thing. Ever. section in our online digital edition. The OM7 is Audix’s handheld dynamic vocal microphone designed with an unusually low output, which provides a large amount of gain before feedback. “We’ve used the OM7s with Paul Weller, Blood Red Shoes, The Vaccines, Spike's All Stars Band and many others,” says SSE operations director Spencer Beard. “We are seeing them on a lot of channel lists as the vocal mic of choice and have never had anybody yet give us a negative review.” The final mic added to SSE’s stock is the TM1 omni-directional test and measurement microphones, used to time-aligned PA systems. More TM1’s are needed to accommodate the volume of work that SSE is handling. “The TM1 is the most economical measurement mic for our touring stock,” said Spencer. “You can easily spend a couple of thousand pounds on a measurement microphone, but ours get handed to strangers for the most part and we don't know how they are going to be treated. The TM1 is great value for money and perfectly fulfils all of our needs.” www.audixusa.comwww.scvlondon.co.ukwww.sseaudiogroup.com
