Megadeth Bassist James Lomenzo Puts EV Wired/ Wireless Mics through Paces on World Tour!

October 17, 2006

Electro-Voice is extremely proud to have one of the most versatile and talented bassists in the world on its list of artist endorsers. With a pedigree that spans from White Lion to Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society, and now Megadeth, it’s an understatement to say that James is on the “A list“. However, even though James is highly sought after for recording and touring by the industry’s top musical acts, he remains humble and courteous, a real gentleman.

A fan of Electro-Voice wired and wireless mics, James uses the EV RE20 and RE27N/D in the studio and on stage to capture his signature sound. When the venue or tour requires wireless-as is often the case with Megadeth-James uses the EV RE-1 wireless system, which provides flat, unaffected sound down to 30 Hz!
