With a live audience of more than 67,612 and 100m television viewers, Super Bowl 52 proved that even record-setting low temperatures cannot deter American football fans – nor compromise the performance of Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 wireless system. Ahead of the game between the New England Patriots faced off against the Philadelphia Eagles, Pink set the tone for the evening with a rendition of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’, sung through her Digital 6000 wireless microphone system, with every emotional nuance of the famously difficult 19-semitone song delivered in detail.

Pik performing at Super Bowl 52‘For an artist whose vocal performance is so well renowned, it is important for us to have the ultimate equipment specification both on tour and during the Super Bowl,’ says her monitor Eengineer, Jon Lewis. ‘We have a very strong relationship with Sennheiser, and the Digital 6000 gives us the best digital audio quality as well as dependable RF.’

The Pink team has been using the Digital 6000 system over the last several months while touring, and appearing on high-profile television programmes and award shows such as Saturday Night Live, the Grammy Awards, the Video Music Awards and others. During her ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ performance, Pink used a Sennheiser SKM 6000 handheld transmitter, coupled with an MD 9235 capsule.

‘We have always been really happy with her voice on the MD 5235 capsule, so when we moved over to the Digital 6000 series, it was a very natural progression,’ Lewis explains.

FOH engineer Dave Bracey has an affinity for the Digital 6000 system and its role during an artist performance: ‘The reason I love that microphone is because it is able to capture the complete character and nuances of a singer’s voice. In fact, it is capable of reproducing the exact character of whatever you are miking up – including the best live singing voices in the world,’ he says.

For Lewis, the Digital 6000 series succeeds on a number of fronts – most importantly on the stage: ‘I first used the Digital 6000 on a recommendation from Dave [Bracey], who had used it with Adele. Since then, I’ve just been blown away with the distance range and quality. It has proven to work equally well on both in-ears and through wedges, and the microphone itself can handle being in environments with super-high noise levels like the Super Bowl.’

As the most-watched annual sporting event in the US, this year’s Super Bowl did not disappoint in delivering a spectacular outcome, with the Philadelphia Eagles snatching up their first ever Super Bowl title.
