Audio-Technica is proud to be an integral part of the stage setup of rockers Daughtry, led by frontman Chris Daughtry.

The group’s 2006 self-titled RCA debut was the fastest selling debut rock album in Soundscan history, and their 2009 follow-up Leave This Town debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in its first week in the U.S., scoring Daughtry two consecutive #1 albums. The band’s muscular mix of modern rock, hard rock, alternative and post-grunge has been delighting their millions of fans on concert stages around the world.

Daughtry’s Audio-Technica microphone list is extensive. Chris Daughtry uses Audio-Technica’s Artist Elite® 5000 Series UHF wireless system with the AE6100 hypercardioid dynamic handheld microphone and AEW-T6100 Transmitter for his lead vocals. The band also uses ATM650 for snare (top and bottom); AE5100 for hi-hat and ride; AE3000 for rack and floor toms; AT4050 for overheads; ATM250 for the bass cabinet; and AE2500 for guitar cabinets.

Front-of-House (FOH) engineer Morgan Russell, best known for his work with Kittie, Shadows Fall, Hawthorne Heights and Damage Plan, states, “When you have a world-class performer on stage, a world class mic is the only thing that will do. I consider the AE6100 the best vocal mic on the market.” Chris Daughtry echoes Russell’s sentiment: “This microphone is always reliable and provides great clarity!”
