FOH engineer John Kerns (Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain, Sammy Hagar, etc.) has been using an extensive lineup of Audio-Technica microphones for the current No Doubt tour. “I contacted A-T and got a selection of mics when No Doubt went into production rehearsals,” Kerns explains. “I immediately liked what I heard.” For Gwen Stefani’s vocals, Kerns has been using the Artist Elite™ 4000 Series wireless system. On drums, Kerns picked an ATM23 for snare bottom and cowbell, AT3035s for overheads and AT3031s on hi-hats. AT4060 and ATM25 mics picked up Tom Dumont’s guitars, and an AT4047 was used to mike Tony Kanal’s bass cabinet.
