New York (May 20, 2011)—Peavey's Versarray 212 line array system will support the annual Rockstar Mayhem Festival as it crosses North America from July through August, providing audio for the Jägermeister Mobile Stage.
The Jägermeister Mobile Stage—a custom-built, traveling foldout stage housed in a 44-foot trailer—will once again sport the ribbon-loaded Versarray 212, as it has on all four Rockstar Mayhem Festival tours.
"Producing a heavy rock concert can be difficult because there is so much going on in the music," said Rick Zeiler, director of Marketing and Brand Development at Jägermeister. "The Versarray solves that through incredible sonic articulation, consistency and a fully dynamic listening experience."
The Jägermeister Mobile Stage features twin arrays of eight Versarray 212 enclosures per side plus 16 Versarray 218 subwoofers. Each VR212 enclosure is outfitted with two 12" Black Widow woofers, four planar ribbon drivers and 10 midrange drivers. All 16 line-array components utilize neodymium magnets.
"The Peavey Versarray 212 is a big leap forward for sound reinforcement technology," said Dave Summers, Road and Production Manager for the Jägermeister Mobile Stage. "I have used the Peavey Versarray system since day one, and I couldn't be happier with the sound and performance. It's the ideal system for modern touring situations, where performance and efficiency are matters of necessity."
The Versarray line-array system is managed by Peavey Architectural Acoustics Digitool processors and powered by 24 Crest Audio Pro 9200 amplifiers and six Pro 8200 amps. A combination of six Crest Audio Pro 9200, four Pro 8200 and four Pro 7200 amps provide power for the stage's Peavey QW monitor rig.
Peavey artists and Peavey 6505 and Vypyr amplifier endorsers Trivium and Machine Head will perform on the 2011 Mayhem Tour.
