MARTIN AUDIO MONITORS FOR SAMMY HAGAR TOUR
Sammy Hagar and the Wabos are touring the U.S. from early August through September and Clearwing Productions of Phoenix, Arizona have chosen Martin Audio LE2100 monitors for The Red Rocker's high-powered vocals.
Hagar has not only had a long and storied solo career, but started as lead singer of Montrose, spent time with Van Halen (which led to several #1 albums and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) and his most recent supergroup, Chickenfoot, which also features guitarist Joe Satriani, bassist Michael Anthony, and drummer Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is currently recording their second album.
With industry veteran Jim Jorgensen as Monitor engineer, the current system also includes a Yamaha PM5D digital console along with XTA processing and Lab Gruppen amps.
Asked about the monitors Jorgensen said, 'In this application the LE2100s are superior to any other product on the market today. They have exceptionally balanced sound and produce very little distortion, even at rock and roll volumes on large stages. I like having the vocal band on paper.'
