Miami Beach, FL (April 19, 2006)–Sobe Live recently hosted a party for Def Jam Records in Miami, featuring recording artists Christina Milian, Lola and Rihanna. Local production company Drummer Boy Sound took the gig on short notice, going with a portable PA comprised of a Dynacord Cobra line-array, Midas Venice 320 console, a Klark Teknik DN-370 and EV RE-1 wireless mics with N/D 967 capsules and EV QRX112 monitor wedges powered by Dynacord LX2200 power amps.
The Dynacord Cobra line array comprised 4 Cobra Tops, 4 Cobra SUBS and 2 Cobra PWH with 2 Dynacord L2400 power amps.
Christina Milian lets loose on a EV RE-1 wireless mic with N/D 967 capsule.”This rig has served us well at numerous high-profile live events in and around Miami,” reported Harold Cummings of Drummer Boy Sound. “Event Producer Juan Garcia readily accepted our spec knowing we’d deliver the very best sound quality available in a smaller footprint package. Our load-in went very quickly, as usual. Carl Fermin, manager at Sobe Live, couldn’t believe how quick it took us to put up such a powerful system.
“Soundchecks were scheduled from 10am to 2pm. The rig performed so well that whatever each artist needed was dialed in quickly and precisely, meaning all three soundchecks only took an hour! The system performed from 10am until 10 pm with no problems at all. Come showtime, all three artists’ performances went flawlessly, with not an ounce of feedback. The Midas Venice console and EV wireless combo delivered the warm, clear vocals that are so essential to us making a lasting impression with our clients.”
“We heard great things about the sound from all corners,” Cummings continued. “Christina Milian told us the sound was perfect, Lola was blown away by how loud and clear the EV QRx stage monitors were and Rihanna was amazed by how she was able to walk and stand comfortably in front of the Cobra stacks. Juan Garcia was particularly impressed with the power, clarity and precise coverage the Cobra system allows, all whilst keeping the club sightlines open. Plus, from our point of view in the mix position, this is one of the first times we got to use our Klark Teknik DN370 in such a tight area with so much output. We love this rig!”
