‘The Torpedo Live has transformed my performance guitar sound for Blue Öyster Cult, giving the FOH and Monitor mixers a wonderful, consistent mic’ed cabinet signal independent of hall acoustics or gig location. Also, my echo and mod effects are now applied post mic’ed cabinet, and sound great. Tweaking my rig and cab/mic placement listening to my IEM’s gives me studio precision and control in a live situation. I can’t tell you how happy the FOH mixer, and I are with it.’
Blue Öyster Cult (often abbreviated BÖC) is an American rock band from Long Island, New York, United States, best known for such hard rock songs as “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”, “Burnin’ for You”, and “Godzilla”. Since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, the band has sold over 24 million albums worldwide, including 7 million in the United States alone.
The band’s music videos, especially “Burnin’ for You”, received heavy rotation on MTV when the music television network premiered in 1981, cementing the band’s contribution to the development and success of the music video in modern pop culture.
Today, BÖC’s music continues to be played on AOR-friendly radio stations as well as in movies, television shows, and commercials, and even during sporting events.
