Giovanni Hidalgo is an educator, percussionist and recording artist in the genre of Latin jazz. Hidalgo is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest congueros of our time.

Giovanni uses a wide array of Audix microphones depending upon the venue. Giovanni states, "For recording, my engineer Jhean Paul Bracho and I absolutely love the SCX25A for overheads and the M44 clip on mic for the congas. At the clinics, we will typically use either D2 or i5 for congas, and CX112 or SCX25A for overheads. The results are astonishing and the people always comment on the clarity and quality of the sound!"
