Set It Off Gets on the Mic

LA rock act turns to Telefunken live and in the studio.

Los Angeles, CA (February 8, 2019)—Cody Carson, lead singer with LA-based hard-rockers Set It Off, gave Telefunken’s ELA M 251E classic large diaphragm tube microphone a workout on the band’s new album, Midnight.

“We’ve tried all kinds of mics on my voice,” says Carson, “but when we finally tried Telefunken’s 251 it was a no brainer. Our producers, Mike Green and Brandon Paddock, now use that mic for all of my vocals, from my soft lower range to the loudness of my full blast. The 251 has an amazing crispness that just cuts right through the mix.”

Set It Off is comprised of Cody Carson, vocals; Dan Clermont, guitar; Zach DeWall, guitar; and Maxx Danziger, drums. Set It Off’s debut album, Cinematics, debuted at # 4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #9 on Billboard‘s Next Big Sound Chart, followed by the band’s sophomore album, Duality, which debuted at #18 on the Billboard Independent Chart.

When Set It Off takes to the stage, Carson turns to Telefunken’s M80 dynamic microphone. “I met with the folks at Telefunken and told them about the various mics I had been working with and they said to try the M80. We did a blind test with our road team and there was no debate,” he says.
