Their P.A. gear of choice? Electro-Voice. EV speakers are the best-selling brand in the business and were proud to now oer them. Take it from a pro: these speakers oer outstanding sound, whether youre just getting started or have years of experience. Excellent value Why did Cory's band choose EV gear in 2013? "The price-to- performance ratio is fantastic," he says. "You get speakers that really hold their own against gear that costs hundreds more." Built to last Pro gear needs to withstand the wear and tear that comes with frequent gigs. "EV's P.A. speakers are built extremely well," Cory says. "My band's cabinets have stood up to constant gigging, loading in and out, and even a few falls - all without a flinch." Which product line? EV's ZLX speakers are great for budding bands or small gigs. Need something bigger and better? "Go with the ELX, or Live X', line," Cory says. These speakers offer more output, so you can play larger rooms and outdoor venues and get plenty of sound." Plus, ELX cabinets are made of wood for more durability. "Trust me," says Cory, "your gear is going to get bumped and bruised. Buy equipment that can take some abuse and still perform."
