Among the artists that have used AKG microphones in the past are legendary acts such as Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder.
More modern performers to use AKG equipment include Jay-Z, Missy Elliott and Kanye West.
The latter used an AKG equipment on his global Glow in the Dark tour last year, which saw West travel across six continents to play in 40 cities around the world.
