LEJRE, Denmark — Danish company Moto Rental has been supplying equipment for the annual Ledreborg Slotskoncerter (Ledreborg Castle Concert) for almost 20 years. Since 1999, Moto Rental has used L-ACOUSTICS systems for the event, hosted by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra with various guest performers. This year, FOH engineer Henrik Bonné chose Moto’s new KARA WST® modular line source system with SB18 subs for the concert.

“Everyone was very excited about getting this large KARA/SB18 system,” says Bonné who has mixed the concert since 1995. “Normally we work with V-DOSC in larger venues and KARA in smaller venues. But using KARA on this large outdoor concert, which attracted 24,000 people over two days, really impressed us. We only received good, positive feedback about the sound.” more
