Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are celebrating their 40th Anniversary this year with an extensive tour schedule including shows across America, Canada and in London, England. Veteran FOH mixer Robert Scovill was tapped for this historic tour and his vocal mics of choice are TELEFUNKEN M80 dynamic microphones. Scovill commented, "I've been using the Telefunken M80 on vocals for a few tours now and am constantly impressed with both how consistent they are show to show with Tom and The Heartbreakers, coupled with their reliability and durability. The 80 is a really wonderful vocal and instrument mic, nothing less than I would expect from a company with the pedigree of Telefunken."
