For the 12th consecutive year, Shure Incorporated supported the Montreux Jazz Festival as the official supplier of microphones and wireless systems by providing a wide range of equipment for all festival venues. Additionally, a Shure service technician was available for 24-hour onsite support.
In honor of the event’s 40th anniversary, Chris Schyvinck, Shure’s executive vice president of global marketing and sales, congratulated festival founder Claude Nobs and presented him with a KSM9 microphone and a pair of E500 sound isolating earphones. Both products featured a personal dedication from Shure chairman Mrs. Rose L. Shure, which complimented Nobs on his remarkable achievement of founding and bringing the Montreux Jazz Festival to its 40th year.
The KSM9 was engraved for Nobs, who used the microphone to announce artists on the main stage for the remainder of the festival.
