Country superstar Crystal Gayle has been working with production manager and FOH mixer Edaghogho Eferakeya Jr. for the past decade in Nashville, as well as touring extensively all over the globe. Their vocal mic of choice is TELEFUNKEN's popular M80 dynamic microphone. Eferakeya explains, "I started out experimenting with the M80 on country music and Christian artists. I remember speaking through a flat M80 and finding a vocal sound that was full, rich, present and magical." Once convinced of the excellent response of the M80, Eferakeya tried the mic with Crystal Gayle. "We auditioned lots of vocal mic's over the years," he recalls, "and we kept coming back home to a dynamic vocal mic on her. Telefunken's M80 for her vocal is the best of both worlds: the high frequency detail of a studio condenser microphone with the warmth of a dynamic mic." In addition to the M80 on Gayle's vocals, Eferakeya also tours with TELEFUNKEN's DC6 Drum Pack, comprised of an M82 on kick drum, M80-SHB on snare, M81-SH for toms, and the M60 FET cardioid for cymbals and overheads.
