Since taking out the title as winner of The Voice 2018, Sam Perry has quickly made a name for himself around the nation. We sat down with the Aussie vocal loop mastermind to find out what gear he trusts on the road ahead of his national tour next month.
I travel as light as possible. My live setup consists of mainly Boss Roland gear.
Boss RC-505 Loop Station
This is the heart of my setup. It's the latest and best loop station available today.
Boss GT-10b Effect Processor
An effect pedal built for bass guitars. I spend lots of time designing sounds and save them as individual patches so I can select them on the spot and loop them live with the RC505. The only difference for me is I plug a microphone into the GT instead of a bass guitar and build all the sounds with my voice.
Shure SM58 Microphone
I'm currently using a Shure SM58 microphone, but I'm always changing mics. It’s a trial and error thing to see what works best with my voice and sounds. The 58 has a nice top end and is super versatile.
Sennheiser HD25 Headphones
I've always used Sennheiser's HD25 headphones. They’re my favourite headphones, no question. I've been slowing getting used to in-ear monitors and I'm thinking about making the jump across, but the bass is just not as powerful with the smaller drivers. I've been testing some in-ears from Audiofly and I've found them to be the best for my live sound.
Apart from that, I have a pitchblack tuner and an SYB bass stompbox for the harder hitting bass sounds, and a custom hard case for it all to live in ... and I always forget my toothbrush.
