Mama Mia! Yamaha CL5 Fits the Bill for ABBA MANIA

BUENA PARK, Calif.—ABBA MANIA, formed in 1999 as the world’s number one touring ABBA tribute production, is promoted by Handshake Group of Manchester, England. The U.S. leg of the tour that began in Elkhart, Indiana and ends in Sedona, Arizona has Clearwing Productions (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) to thank for handling audio production. The company provided a Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console with two Rio 3224-D input/output boxes for front of house mixing duties by Trevor Powers of Clearwing.

“The advantage of having the Yamaha CL5 in conjunction with two Rio i/o racks is the ultimate flexibility when interfacing with house PA’s, states Powers. Do you need AES? No problem. Do you need four outputs for your subs? No problem. The list can go on and on.” Powers said that by splitting up the Rio racks, he has eliminated the use of ANY sub-snakes on stage, which makes for a very clean looking stage. “Also, by not having long runs of mic cables before the mic pre’s, I have virtually eliminated any buzzes or hum.”

With regard to the CL’s Premium Rack, Powers is using the Rupert Neve Portico 5043 as a bass compressor and the U76 to compress/level the female leads. “I have been quite impressed with the sound quality of the CL as well as the flexibility the console offers.”
