The Band Camino Triumphs With TELEFUNKEN Mics

Nashville, TN, August 2022 – “We’re out on tour with a bunch of TELEFUNKEN mics,” explains Jaedon Bonifield, touring engineer for The Band CAMINO. “We’re using them for drums and vocals, and we are just knocking it out of the park.”

“We decided to upgrade our touring gear for the bigger venues we’re playing this year,” added FOH engineer Michael Mechling. “It was a big winner for me and the rest of the audio crew. The drums have never sounded better — like night and day. Things are clearer, fatter, and faster sounding.”

The Band CAMINO is a popular, hard-touring rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2015, and is now based in Nashville. Signed to dblblk/Elektra Records, their 14-track full-length debut album captures the band’s range, from the arena-rock ready “1 Last Cigarette” to the mid-tempo “Look Up” and the sweet downbeat “Sorry Mom.”

Bonifield adds, “Telefunken makes my day a lot easier. We’re getting a lot of new clarity and the rejection’s incredible. Even at the loudest moments in the set, we’re getting a lot of separation between vocals and drums, which is really important.”

“Night after night, our drums just sound great,” concludes Mechling. “The vocals sound powerful and are very consistent. Going on the road, mics always experience a lot of wear and tear, but the Telefunken durability is fantastic. They’ve really held up on this tour and never let us down.”
