Dick Dale: Guitar Legend Tours with EV (Electro-Voice) RE-1 Guitar Wireless and EV Wired Mics

July 6, 2005

In an extensive interview with Dick Dale at his hotel room prior to the May 9th show at the Cabooze in Minneapolis, MN, Dick spoke extensively with EV PR representatives about his music and life philosophies, as well as his thoughts on gear. We thank him immensely for the hours he spent with us. All in attendance were impressed with Dick’s intelligence, honesty, and good sense of humor. What follows is merely an excerpt from some fascinating conversation!

“From the strings, to the guitars, to the amps, and loudspeakers, and the wireless, it’s got to be just right. The EV RE-1 hits it!”

Dick Dale: “The EV RE-1 wireless gives me and my guitar prodigy son, Jimmy Dale, the chance to do some fun stage work. For example, I’ll be playing one of the big hits and then take my hands away from the guitar and there’s still music coming out of it! The crowd doesn’t know what’s going on until my 14-year old son comes out from behind the curtain playing exactly the same licks with the same sound and the same gear as me. Yeah, it gives us the chance to do some cool stage tricks. Plus, the wireless just sounds great. I’ve had no problems - no drop-outs, interference, noise. Plus, it doesn’t compress my sound. It’s difficult to tell any difference between the wireless and a good cable, and I’m very particular about what I use. From the strings, to the guitars, to the amps, and loudspeakers, and the wireless, it’s got to be just right. The EV RE-1 hits it!“

In addition to the EV RE-1 wireless, Dick Dale also uses the EV N/D967 on stage as his main vocal mic, and has been using the EV RE20 on his guitar cabinet and at home, in the studio.
