These artists have high praise for Lectrosonics gear to help them through the rigors of performing on tour:

“We tour, literally, around the globe,” says Marco Mendoza, who has high praise for Lectrosonics’ reliability: “I know it can sometimes sound trivial to talk about ‘the rigors of touring,’ but believe me, when you’re jumping around stage in city after city, with the stuff riding around on the truck in between, there is no better test.

“If a wireless system goes down in the middle of a tour, you have to take time out to check out other gear, make sure it works for all the countries, and so on,” Mendoza continues. “To have a wireless system that we can depend on around the world, like we can with Lectrosonics, is just priceless.”

“The sound is crystal clear. The physical range is great, and the dynamic range doesn’t sound compressed. I have no dropout issues, period,” says Great White’s Mitch Malloy on his Lectrosonics gear.

Queen tribute band lead vocalist Greg Finsley adds,” I sing very loud,” explains Finsley. “I can just blast the diaphragm of a mic to the point where the engineer almost can’t take enough gain out. It’s a weird thing. But the Lectrosonics HHa stands up to that better than any mic I’ve ever tried.”

Bassist and guitarist Phil Soussan, whose credits read like a who’s who of hard rock royalty, from Ozzy Osbourne to Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil, from Billy Idol to Jimmy Page and beyond, shares with fellow hard rock titans the high audio quality of the Lectrosonics wireless system. “I rotate on bass with Hugh MacDonald, who plays with Bon Jovi. Doug Aldridge, the guitarist of Whitesnake is also part of the lineup,” he says. “These musicians are hardcore cable guys, and when both of them tried my system – they wanted their own straight away. I’ve tried all of the usual brands for wireless —and Lectrosonics is the only system where I can literally say that I can’t tell the difference between it and a cable.”

See Lectrosonics and meet these artists in person at NAMM 2019 Booth #17212.
