At the NASCAR Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July, the opening ceremonies featured popular country singer/songwriter Justin Moore and his band performing with PM9 handheld microphones from Nashville-based Miktek.
Front of house engineer Jeff Oliver states, “The Miktek PM9 is awesome right out of the box. I know it will sound like him, it will work, and I won’t have to adjust anything.”
Steve Durr, a noted acoustical consultant who’s responsible for all audio systems at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, notes, “I was very surprised at the quality of the vocal sound when I went around front to listen, it was so rich and full without any extreme high end exaggeration. I walked away with a hundred things on my mind and later when things calmed down I thought, that was the Miktek vocal mic and it sounded truly spectacular.”
Monitor engineer Arthur Switzer adds, “Usually I cut the low mids of Justin’s vocal because it gets muddy and hard to deal with, but with the PM9, the rich low-mid response was exceptional soI added it back in. The whole vocal sat perfectly in the mix.”
The PM9 is a supercardioid, dynamic microphone with a custom-designed neodymium capsule element and custom AMI transformer. It also has a multistage windscreen, steel grille and die-cast body with a sleek, black finish and stainless steel appointments.It ships with a protective case and mic clip.
