Austrian Audio On The Road With Bon Jovi

FOH engineer Bill Sheppell and recording engineer Obie O'Brien deploy OD505 vocal mics, OC18 condensers on drums and CC8 condensers for hi-hat and percussion on band's 2022 North American tour.

Austrian Audio microphones were on the road earlier this year with New Jersey-based rockers Bon Jovi for the band’s 2022 North American tour throughout the Midwest and South, stopping in 15 cities along the way.

Front of house engineer Bill Sheppell and Bon Jovi’s longtime recording engineer Obie O’Brien were responsible for the tour’s sound and recording, and they made extensive use of Austrian Audio mics. Models included OD505 active dynamic vocal mics, OC18 condensers on drums and CC8 small-diaphragm condensers for hi-hat and percussion.

O’Brien and Sheppell jointly state, “We got impressive results with the spill over rejection of the 505 vocal mics. Even when they cover the mic with both hands, the sound remains unchanged, and feedback rejection is still great. Fantastic new vocal mics from Austrian Audio.”

Austrian Audio CEO Martin Seidl adds, “This was another highlight for us. We’re extremely proud that our mics were part of Bon Jovi 2022. Bill Sheppell and Obie O’Brien are the best of the best and the fact that they chose our microphones for such a big tour where it’s all about the sound, is humbling.”
