Mentioned in this *Mix Online* article about the Rock Witchu Tour. > To help the R&B/pop singer shine through a mix that wouldn't be out of place at a rock 'n roll show, front-of-house engineer Jon Lemon and monitor engineer Blake Suib selected Sennheiser's SKM 5200 wireless handheld transmitter outfitted with a Neumann KK 105 S capsule. > > Jackson is using both a headset and a handheld mic on the Rock Witchu Tour, says Lemon, who arranged for an audition of an array of potential microphones for the singer.
