Electro-Voice sound onstage for “American Idol“ homecoming

June 9th, 2008

3500 people attended the event, which was televised on “American Idol“. Sights & Sounds deployed Electro-Voice wired (N/D767a) and wireless microphones (RE-2 systems with N/D767a heads) and ZX1-90 stage wedges (powered by CP2200 amplifiers) for a mic and monitor setup that made a big impression, as Brent Greeno of Sights & Sounds explains:

“Fox Television actually used our sound for their broadcast, so it went from being a live event for 3500 to a TV event for tens of millions. Syesha Marcado performed three songs, and was really impressed with the performance of the 767a-very smooth and warm and perfect for her voice. We also used wired 767a mic’s for the guitar and bass cabs. We all know that people like to use what they know, and I’m often asked if I have another certain industry standard vocal mic available. I always suggest “try the 767a’ and every time, as soon as they start singing with it, we hear “now that’s a nice sounding microphone’, which it really is. It’s simply a cut above the competition. We make the introduction, and then the product proves itself on its own terms. That’s why we use EV.

“Our ZX1 monitors always impress,“ Greeno continues; “people look at them and ask “those are the monitors?’ because they’re so small, but when they hear them we hear “whoa!’ every time. We deal with many very small stages on which the ZX1s work out perfectly, but they have plenty of power handling for larger events like this. In addition, of course, they sound great, which is most important. The clarity is fantastic; they blow away boxes three times their size. Pretty much everyone who uses the ZX1s ends up buying some for themselves, and we sell a lot of EV mic’s for the same reason.“
