An Adamson system was used for
the recent Caesarea Jazz Festival
in Israel at Caesarea Roman Port.Israel (October 7, 2009)–Kolot Ramim, located in Upper Galilee, Israel, recently became the first Israeli partner in the Adamson Network.
A medium sized company of 20 employees headed by founder and owner Yossi Bar, it focuses on concerts, corporate shows, and theater productions for audiences up to 5,000 people, offering full lighting, staging and backline services. The company recently purchased 16 Spektrix cabinets and eight Spektrix subs, adding to its inventory of Meyer Sound speakers, Midas consoles, Lab.gruppen amps and Clair and d&b monitors, among others.
Kolot Ramim’s first show with its new Adamson system was at the three-day Caesarea Jazz Festival in June, 2009, which took place in the picturesque Caesarea Roman Port. The festival, which is on its 5th year with a seating capacity of 2,300, features classical jazz, encompassing the traditional rhythms of New Orleans, Dixieland and hot swing.
Jochen Sommer, director of Adamson Europe GmbH, had scheduled a training seminar and visit to coincide with the festival. The sound design was executed by Gadi Reik and Jochen Sommer; a seated area of 65 meters wide and 40 meters deep was to be covered. To achieve full throw on the main system, Meyer Sound UPA 1Ps were used to supplement the front rows as front fills. The SpekTrix system specs 120 degrees of horizontal coverage, covering the width of the venue without needing additional side fills. The engineers at the festival chose a Midas Heritage 3000 console and Clair and Meyer monitors.
Many artists commented on the sound quality, and the promoter for the Caesarea Jazz festival remarked that it was the best Jazz Festival sound he had ever heard; including the Montreaux Jazz Festival.
