London (August 12, 2004)–Autograph Sales has supplied a wide range of equipment to some of the UK’s leading education centers, including Dauntsey’s School in Wiltshire, which specializes in music and drama performance.
Autograph Sales first supplied and installed an extensive sound and communications system three years ago. The original install included various Meyer Sound loudspeakers, AKG radio mics, a Clear-Com communications system and an HSA Rolltop desk, which houses an Allen & Heath GL3300 mixing console. A further quantity of AKG radio mics was added in the summer of 2001.
Director of music, Chris Thompson, returned to Autograph Sales in June 2004 in order to extend his radio microphone system. Autograph Sales’ Graham Paddon came up with a custom-built rack unit, to include a Yamaha 01V96 digital mixer, a Tascam CD and cassette recorder and eight Sennheiser 300 G2 radio mics, as well as additional mulitcores. The rack was built by Dauntsey’s in-house joinery department, while Autograph Sales were on-hand to oversee and complete the installation. The new digital rack now allows all 16 radio microphones to be sub mixed when larger productions are being staged.
Another school that promotes the arts, Newton Prep in Battersea, has also received some sound advice from the Autograph Group. Architect David Self, the creative force behind a brand new theatre at the school, wanted a sound system to compliment his plans. He originally approached Lee Dennison, who works for Autograph’s rental division, Autograph Sound Recording.
After many hours of working on a sound system specification, Lee turned to Autograph Sales to supply a range of audio equipment including various Meyer Sound cabinets, XTA DP224 crossovers, and an Allen & Heath GL3300 mixing console coupled with a Sennheiser UHF radio microphone system.
Autograph has also recently outfitted Kings House School in Richmond, which bought a Sennheiser wireless microphone system, and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama in Scotland, which now has a Clear-Com wireless communications system
