Rockapella selects AKG for 2009 world tour

L&Si Online (press release):

The technical staff for the a cappella pop group, Rockapella, together with its members, selected the AKG WMS 4500 wireless system and C5900 microphone as they tour the globe and lay the foundation of a new album.

Commenting on the group's selection of the WMS 4500 and C 5900 microphone, Rockapella's high-tenor and primary arranger, Scott Leonard, said, "The microphone and sound system selection for an a cappella group is extremely important. The human voice is the sole instrument of the group, therefore selecting the right microphones is a highly sensitive process."

Rockapella took extensive time to review the entire line of AKG products as well as those from many competitors. "The microphones we choose have to handle both normal vocals and a wide variety of vocal percussion sounds. Going with the C 5900 microphone through the WMS 4500 wireless system lets us successfully deliver the complete sound of a vocally driven group like Rockapella," said Jeff Thacher, Rockapella's vocal percussionist.
