Jordan Rudess Microphone Endorsement

JZ Microphones has announced that american progressive metal band Dream Theater keyboardist / multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rudess has joined their ranks.

Jordan had this to say, "I spend my life working on getting the exact sounds that I want, whether it's coming from my Steinway grand, Harpejji or my world of synthesizers. The JZ Black Hole BH-1 microphones meticulously capture the sounds that I create. I'm a believer !"

Here's the JZ press statement:

Jordan Rudess is a man who needs little introduction. As the virtuosic keyboard player for progressive metal band Dream Theater, Jordan has worked with many other artists including David Bowie, Steven Wilson, Enrique Iglesias, Tony Williams, Jan Hammer and the Paul Winter Consort.
