To tour with her new album, This Woman, and as the host of the USA Network’s Nashville Star, LeAnn Rimes has used a Shure UHF wireless mic.
“I knew that this would be the first time I’d be able to sing about things I’ve actually experienced rather than things I could only imagine,” Rimes confides with fans in a message posted recently on her Website. “Everything has changed, from my own writing to the way I get into music written by others.”
On a technical level, the task of bringing harmony and balance to Rimes’ music on tour as well as on the set of Nashville Star has been entrusted to a Shure wireless UHF U24D/86 system using a custom champagne-finished handheld transmitter outfitted with an SM86 capsule.
“Coupling a really great sounding capsule like the SM86 with Shure’s robust UHF transmitter and receiver is perfect for LeAnn,” says Nashville Star production mixer Tom Davis of Nashville-based Seismic Sound. “The SM86 has fabulous depth and warmth, and when it comes to reliability, Shure never lets us down. We’ve never had to go to a backup since we started using this system. We still scrutinize everything and do line checks, but nothing ever goes wrong. I guess you could say that before each show we hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Shure gives us the confidence to face any situation, without worry.”
