SINGAPORE: Audio-Technica (SEA) sponsored the recent Thunder Band Slam competition at the Singapore Polytechnic Auditorium by providing a range of microphones for the competing bands.

Audio-Technica outfitted the auditorium with an Artist Elite 5000 series wireless system, which includes four AEW-R5200G dual receivers with 996 selectable frequencies offered in each of two available UHF bands, eight AEW-T6100G hyper cardioid dynamic transmitters, one ATW-DA700G UHF antenna distribution system and a number of ATW-A74P UHF powered dipole antennas.

The competition works with all polytechnics in Singapore to cultivate and mentor the potential bands. Eight bands from each polytechnic are chosen to pass the audition process, which is followed by a three-day band camp. After which, one band from each educational institution is chosen to compete in the grand final after a week of mentoring.

‘The vocal mics were especially good for the competition as it allowed the judges to be more accurate with their judgment,’ said Ian Toh, director of the Thunder Band Slam and a vocal coach at the Thunder Rock School. ‘And the drum mics were definitely better than most I have seen. The treble was adequate and the bass was strong and supportive.’

Guitarists had their amplifiers paired with two of AE3000 cardioid condenser instrument microphones, whilst an ATM250 hypercardioid dynamic instrument mic was used for the kick drum and cajón. Four AE5100 cardioid condenser instrument mics were used to reproduce the natural response of the overheads, and four low-profile ATM350 cardioid condenser clip-on instrument mics were fixed on toms, floor toms, splash and the cello. Meanwhile, snares were outfitted by an ATM650 mic.

‘They pack a whole lot of punch,’ said Brandon Khoo, who was part of the organising committee. ‘The tone and clarity that comes out of it was unbelievable. I also love that it is small and compact so it doesn’t look like there’s a thousand and one things poking into the drummer’s face. Overall, I’m very impressed with AT microphones; the Thunder Band Slam team is impressed as well!’
