For the seventh year in a row, Audio-Technica microphones were chosen for the VH1 broadcast of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, held March 15 at the Waldorf Astoria Ballroom in Midtown Manhattan.

Over 80 A-T mics were used to capture audio for the event, which aired on March 21 and honored Jackson Browne, The Dells, George Harrison, Prince, Bob Seger, Traffic and ZZ Top. Mics used include the AE2500 (bass guitar amps), AT4041 (ride cymbals), ATM25 (toms), AT4055 (brass), AT4050 (overheads and guitar amps), and AT4047/SV (guitar cabinets for Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top). The AT4054 was used for front-line vocals for Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood (Traffic), Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Dhani Harrison (George’s son), and The Dells. A-T’s Artist Elite 5000 Series UHF Wireless System was used for vocals by Paul Shaffer.
