George Clinton and Parliament All-Stars Tour with EV (Electro-Voice) Wired & Wireless Mics

July 15, 2005

In conversation with the band prior to their Minneapolis appearance at the Quest, the various instrumentalists and vocalists were unanimously in high favor of how the equipment performs. After five years of using the various EV wired and wireless microphones - and thousands of gigs later - the equipment is still working strong!

“The EV mics... Yeah, we love em... At one of the NAMM shows we heard them, and we liked what we heard... I’ve had nothing but good things with EV.”

P-Funk All-Star Side Vocalist, “Clip“ Payne: “The EV RE-1 wireless performs like no other, and we’ve tried them all. Plus, we really appreciate the support you’ve given us over the years. If you watch George beat on the microphones and the band’s overall rugged use of the equipment, it’s high praise to you and the quality of the equipment that it stands up to our abuse! And we do abuse it!“

P-Funk All-Star Guitarist, “Blackbird“ McKnight: “As far as guitar wireless goes, this hits it! With the single press of the ClearScan button, I find the clearest frequency, group, channel, and all that, and I know I won’t have any problems. Sounds great. It’s what I use!“

P-Funk Ringleader, George Clinton, aka “Dr. Funkenstein“: “The EV mics... Yeah, we love “em... At one of the NAMM shows we heard them, and we liked what we heard... I’ve had nothing but good things with EV.“

About the EV RE-1 Wireless

The Electro-Voice RE-1 Wireless Microphone/Guitar System is currently on the road with Dick Dale, Megadeth, Static-X, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Pete Anderson, Parliament, and GWAR, to name a few. It’s been applauded by numerous bands, performers, and sound engineers as a complete wireless solution - a piece of equipment that combines outstanding sound, simple set-up, and roadworthy construction. Simply, this is not your entry-level or garage-band, cutesy plug-in kind of wireless. We’re talking a cast magnesium bodypack transmitter, interchangeable condenser and dynamic microphone heads, straight and 45-degree guitar adapter options, George L’s® premium guitar cable, “Smart Battery“ technology, DSP diversity, and real time battery status monitoring at the receiver. Sound too complex? Forget about it. With the single push of a button, the RE-1’s Advanced ClearScan™ finds the clearest channels in the clearest coordinated channel groups in just seconds. Set-up is a breeze.
