Pharrell Williams tours with Shure wireless

Singer-songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams made extensive use of Shure wireless microphone and in-ear monitoring systems during his recent headline concert tour.

Shure Axient wireless microphones and PSM1000 in-ear monitoring systems were specified for their RF reliability and audio fidelity.

Six channels of Axient were used, two for Pharrell’s vocals (one main and one backup, both running in Frequency Diversity mode), two for main support vocalists, and two guest vocal channels. 10 channels of PSM1000 in-ear monitoring were also used for the members of Pharrell’s band, with Shure’s UHF-R wireless microphone systems supplying four more channels for supporting instruments.
