Las Vegas (March 13, 2006)–Larry Hall, owner of Las Vegas-based production services company H.A.S. Productions, has purchased two Soundcraft MH Series desks–a 48+4 MH2 and a customized 46+6 MH4. The two new consoles join another 40+4 MH4 that H.A.S. purchased shortly after the product made its debut in the spring of 2002.

Productions’ new Soundcraft MH4″After selling off one of our older front-of-house desks, we were planning to replace it with another used desk,” Hall recalled. “However, when we looked back at the performance of our MH4 and realized that we’ve all been very happy and had literally had no issues with it, we opted for another MH4 instead–brand new with a full warranty for around the same price as that other used desk. As a small rental house, the dual-mode capabilities of the MH4 really made much more sense for us anyway.”
Since acquiring the new MH4 and MH2, both desks have frequently been out in use for dedicated FOH and monitor duties at Caesar’s Palace, The Aladdin, Freemont Street Experience, Silverton Hotel Casino and other locations, on shows for Ricky Van Shelton, Spyro Gyra, CCR, Eddie Money, Dickey Betts (Allman Bros.), Al Jardine (Beach Boys), .38 Special, Freddy Fender, Frank Sinatra, Jr. and others.
