Press Release: Lady Gaga Band Goes Coast to Coast with Brace Audio Digital Wireless

Monday, April 26th, 2010


Premier bands pretty much have full reign over the gear they choose; and there is no premier artist right now than Lady Gaga! So when the rhythm section looked for a wireless instrument system that would provide the best performance for their recent US tour – regardless of cost – they chose Brace Audio’s DWG-1000 Digital Wireless System. The punctuation mark for this journey was a live performance on the Grammy Awards international telecast.

“I love my Brace wireless. You set it up- it works right out of the box- no RF interference and it didn’t change my tone. It works better than my other wireless which is a lot more than ten times the price!”, stated Adam Smirnoff, guitar.

Producer and bass player ‘Catalyst’ – aka Mitch Cohn – added, “Finally I’ve found a wireless pack that delivers my tone and is reliable night after night. I never have to worry about my sound being compromised with the Brace System. It’s head and shoulders above any wireless system out there. I love it.”

Perhaps the most important opinion was that of guitar tech Chris Vineyard who had to keep everything running smoothly night after night. “I was very skeptical when the guitarist brought me the Brace unit to try. Now I am a believer. With helical antennas. I was amazed. The problems and drop outs were gone. Plus, it sounds a lot better than a standard analog wireless. Adam finally got his tone back!”

The Brace Audio DWG-1000 Wireless Instrument System utilizes 2.4GHz FHSS digital wireless technology and provides rack-mount system performance in a compact format. Frequency response extends from 10Hz to 15kHz; perfect for bass or guitar. Up to six receivers and 12 transmitters per receiver can operate on one stage, so a mega-act such as Lady Gaga can cut the cords of practically every instrument!
