These brands are all equipment I have and use. The stuff I dream about hasn't been invented yet.

I'm a bit with Mark here.
An endorsement is not something that would be given without getting something in return.

In a past life I had an endorsement by a local company that was the local distributor for MI gear.
So the pickups in my Bass and the cabs I played through, and the strings I used, all cost me zip!
If you ever played Bass for a living and had to buy your own strings, back in the 80's, you would realise what this was worth.

I have had many problems with lots of brands, both up and downmarket, but I have also had a lot of success with both ends of the market.

If I was to get on my high horse and preach about the benefits of a brand I would not only be judging the actual hardware. To me, backup support and knowledgeable staff are worth more than a great piece of hardware by itself.

So to that end, I would probably nominate the EV, Dynacord, Midas and KT brands, as the staff at the local importer really know their products and actually seem to care about the final outcome.

A lot of other companies seem to be just interested in getting a sale.


My 0.02c worth (well actually, It would cost a lot more than that! Laughing )

Mics: Shure Beta, Beyer M201
Consoles: Yamaha Digital
EQ: Lake Mesa, BSS 960
Processing: XTA DP, Lake Contour/Mesa
Amps: LabGruppen fP (I'd happily take iTechs for most applications too I can't 'endorse' as I haven't used them)
Speakers: L'Acoustics, Nexo, D&B, JBL VerTec (SRx700 waiting on), EAW NT

That seems like a lot of speaker companies, but I've had good results on all of them that I've been happy with and the band have been happy with.  Plus all of them are accepted, supported and reliable.

Regards
