The RapcoHorizon Company Is the Go-To Choice for the Clay Cooper Theatre

BRANSON, MO, JANUARY 23, 2012 – The RapcoHorizon Company (2012 NAMM Show Booth 4558, Hall C), a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, has been the clear choice for the Clay Cooper Theatre since January 2010. Located in Branson, MO, the Clay Cooper Theatre relies on RapcoHorizon custom splitter snakes as well as an array of instrument and microphone cables to ensure the venue’s 1,000 annual performances go off without a hitch.

Home to the Clay Cooper Country Music Express, a 22-member live show with musical and comedic acts, the Clay Cooper Theatre also hosts several national celebrity performers, with shows taking place up to seven days a week. With as many as three shows each day, the venue relies on the RapcoHorizon cables and custom snakes for reliability, durability and ease of setup — elements that are vital to perfect productions.

“With three daily shows and all of our visiting acts coming in, the theatre never stops,” says R.P. Harrell, Clay Cooper Theatre’s production manager. “There is always a complete change in the audio setup for each show and the turnaround time is very fast. Yet, with all of this going on, I’ve never had a piece of RapcoHorizon equipment fail on me. I just cannot remember a time that anything with the name RapcoHorizon on it let us down.”

The RapcoHorizon/Taylor Guitar V-cable Volume Control Cables, introduced at the 2011 NAMM Show, are used by the venue’s acoustic musicians for individual control over the volume of their instruments. RapcoHorizon’s SP Cables are used with the stage monitors to ensure clarity of tone, while microphone cables with Neutrik connectors run audio to the various microphones. These cables and connectors guarantee a clear, crisp tone while rejecting interference and electrical hum, which is important in any live application. DMX lighting cables supply the perfect amount of power for the theatre’s lighting needs during productions. With the abundance of RapcoHorizon cables in use, the Clay Cooper Theatre relies on custom 56-channel XLR splitter snakes, XLR and TRS sub snakes as well as direct boxes from the company to ensure a neat, organized stage. With such a wide variety of RapcoHorizon equipment being used, the Clay Cooper Theatre is ensured dependable performance and resilience during every show.

“We use RapcoHorizon equipment both in the theatre and when the Clay Cooper Country Music Express goes on tour and we could not be more elated with the products,” concludes Harrell. “I’m totally sold; we were looking for reliability and performance and that’s exactly what we got.”

The RapcoHorizon equipment has been some of the most heavily used equipment in the Clay Cooper Theatre. Based on a recommendation by country music icon Neal McCoy’s house audio engineer, Daryl Johnson, during a performance at the venue, Harrell chose RapcoHorizon for all his cabling needs.

The Clay Cooper Theatre is a 1,250 seat venue located on Highway 76 in Branson, MO. Boasting a 50’ x 27’ main stage with two side stages positioned at a 45 degree angle to the crowd, each with a projection screen, the theatre puts on shows that are both visually and aurally exciting. The show season runs March 10 through December 9 with five additional performances being held between Christmas and New Year’s. The off-season runs January through February while the Clay Cooper Country Music Express show is on tour. In 2012, the Clay Cooper Theatre looks to bring a new morning show, “Red, Hot…& Blue!” and a new afternoon show, “The Rankin Brothers,” to audiences.
