    K for Musicians Artist Jon Herington Interview

    We recently caught up with Steely Dan and solo guitarist Jon Herington to discuss how he's been using his QSC's. Here's an excerpt from the interview: QSC: What QSC gear do you use, how do you use it, and why do you like it? Jon: I use the QSC K10 monitor speakers as my main PA speakers with the Jon Herington Band. Unfortunately, we only get to work when I'm not busy on the road with Steely Dan, the Dukes of September, or Madeleine Peyroux. But it's been my solo project for many years, and I hope to keep it going. I like the combination of lightweight portability with a serious feature set: they're self-powered; they have unbelievable headroom; there's essentially an on-board two channel mixer in each of them; and they have extremely flexible connection options as well as flexible set-up options. So it's basically about that combination of things: in short, great…
