Pro musicians are using Clark Synthesis Tactile Transducers in increasing numbers as part of efforts to make live performance sound better. Clark Synthesis transducers are known by home theater and audio enthusiasts to add low and accurate energy to the AV experience. Now top musicians, especially bassists and drummers, are using Clark Transducers to get to the next level on stage.

It turns out the Clark Transducers allow musicians to hear and feel their instruments better on-stage. Another advantage to adding tactile monitors to a live rig is that with levels lower on stage performers can hear better thus reducing the risk of hearing loss and improving communication between performers. Also microphones tend to overload and distort when they pick up very low frequencies at high levels therefore if performers can feel their instruments through tactical transducers, the overall sound can be better thanks to lowering distortion on stage.

List of performers using Clark Transudes includes:

Kenny Aronoff – Drummer for: Tina Turner, Smashing Pumpkins, John Cougar Mellencamp
Blueman Group – Las Vegas and Chicago
Ray Griffin – Boyz II Men
Cirque Du Soleil “O” Las Vegas - Bass and drums
