Selena Gomez is now an Audio-Technica Endorser. The singer, actress and entrepreneur has been an Audio-Technica fan from the start and now uses the Audio-Techica AEW-T3300a handheld transmitter with the Audio-Techica 5000 Series UHF Wireless System for the live performances.
Until recently, Selena Gomez was using Audio-Technica’s AEW-T5400 handheld transmitter, but as the stage show has evolved, Front-of-House Engineer Jason Moore urged her to try a different microphone. “We recently added a 20-foot thrust to the show,” notes Moore. “It changed the dynamic of the mic setup on stage, so I met with one of Audio-Techica’s engineers, who was really helpful in pointing us toward the right mic for the new situation. We decided on the AEW-T3300a, which really works well with Selena’s voice. She is a very gifted singer – very exact and precise. There is no lip-syncing in the show, like some other acts. The 3300 has great gain-before-feedback and just the right kind of high end to make her vocals shine. Because of the louder noise floor on the stage, we are dealing with higher sound pressure levels, and the 3300 minimizes the mic bleed and potential feedback. The 3300 just really rounded everything off, and it put the bow on top of our stage setup and mix.”
