PL Series microphones from Electro-Voice got the punk rock seal of approval on this yearâ€™s Warped Tour, drafted for duty alongside the heavy-duty EV sound systems deployed annually for the tourâ€™s Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands and Hurley Stages.
The PL80 was used as a main vocal mic on both stages, joining the standard-issue EV N/DYM, RE, and Cobalt series models used for backing vocals, instrument, and drum micâ€™ing. The PL mics impressed acts and engineers alike with their rugged reliability and sonic finesse – taking a licking a keeping on ticking is a prerequisite for any gear on this tour.
Every band that takes the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands Stage gives it their â€˜Aâ€™ game, and every year Electro-Voice ensures they make a suitably supersonic impact, with a road-proven PA built around X-Array
concert loudspeakers and CP Series amplifiers. Mighty Xsubs deliver the systemâ€™s serious low end. Phoenix 1152M monitors deliver jaw-dropping performance with a tidy footprint. On the Hurley Stage, EVâ€™s formidable XLC127DVX line arrays provide a combination of massive punch and full-bandwidth intelligibility for the wide range of punk acts performing.
