Los Angeles, CA (July 12, 2016)—Christian Assembly Church in Los Angeles recently underwent a major renovation project, including an audio overhaul that included the purchase of numerous Shure wireless systems.
For the project, the church’s Dirk Bolle, IT/Tech support specialist, elected to install UHF-R. “The Shure UHF-R system was an obvious choice for this installation,” said Bolle. “Our worship leader, Tommy Walker, has been a long-time user of Shure wireless systems. Previously, we had been using another brand’s wireless system and found it difficult to understand and operate, all while consistently having issues with background noises. Now with Shure, from a sound engineer’s perspective, the system has been a blessing.”
In the past, Christian Assembly had been using a variety of microphones for the vocalists, including Shure’s Beta 58s and the SM58. Following the 2016 Winter NAMM trade show, Bolle was introduced to the KSM8 Dualdyne Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone, and eventually bought one for the church from CCI Solutions. Impressed, the church purchased an additional six KSM8s.
“An important aspect of our services is the musical performances from the vocalists. After putting it to the test, we were extremely impressed with the KSM8’s ability to deliver a high-quality performance, regardless of who was using it, or how,” stated Bolle. “Following the initial test, all of our vocalists agreed that the KSM8 provided a higher quality sound output than what we were accustomed to, and as a result, we wanted to ensure that all of the vocalists had their own. We will likely purchase more to achieve that goal.”
