Finland/Estonia (February 27, 2006)–The Finnish distributor of Yamaha, F-Audio/F-Musiikki Oy, has delivered the first Yamaha M7CL-48 digital live mixers to Estonia and Finland.
In Estonia the mixer was delivered to Salme Culture Center, a 700-seat multi-purpose auditorium in downtown Tallinn, Estonia. Salme Culture Center was going through a full renovation after its 40-year history, and the delivery of Yamaha M7CL-48 completed the technical upgrade, including a whole new lighting system and Meyer PA.
Toomas Loo, director of the Salme Culture Center, said, “We were looking for a console suitable for both theater production and live concerts. After consulting with Kari Tiitinen of the Finnish National Opera, we decided to go with the Yamaha digital console. After long discussions with F-Audio’s Petri Mäntysalo, we found the M7CL-48 to be the right choice for us. We have had a lot of requests for a Yamaha console from our visiting engineers, now we can finally provide it.”
F-Audio/F-Musiikki Oy has also delivered the first Yamaha M7CL-48 in Finland to the country’s biggest rental company, Eastway Sound & Lighting Oy. Eastway was also the first Finnish rental company to purchase a Yamaha PM4000 back in the 1990s.
