MÖTLEY CRÜE’S VINCE NEIL ENDORSES SENNHEISER

vince_neil.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – MARCH 2009: As lead singer for glam metal’s most revered and notorious band, Vince Neil is without peer. He joined Mötley Crüe in 1981 and recorded five of rock’s greatest albums within that storied decade: Too Fast For Love, Shout at the Devil, Theatre of Pain, Girls Girls Girls, and Dr. Feelgood. Neil sings – and screams – into a Sennheiser SKM 535 G2 wireless handheld and keeps in time and on key with a pair of Sennheiser ew 300 IEM G2 wireless personal monitors. The fidelity of both are important, but their ability to withstand tremendous abuse, and keep working night after night, is paramount. more

THE ZEBRA HAS VERY SOPHISTICATED A/V STRIPES

zebra_office.JPGSUWANEE, GEORGIA – MARCH 2009: Zebra Construction Company, Inc. is a concrete and masonry subcontracting firm that focuses on the education and correctional facilities markets and has much more than a catchy name – it has a prime location near Atlanta, one of the fastest growing regions in the country. With the increased business, owner Chip Kessler knew that the company had outgrown its existing facilities, both in terms of limited physical space and an unsophisticated A/V system that failed to project the company’s professionalism to current and prospective clients. Rather than renovate, Kessler’s opted to build a new facility and hired dB Audio & Video, an Atlanta area-based integrator, to make its A/V system shine. more

METRIC HALO ROCKS AT FOH

loomer_devino.JPGBOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – MARCH 2009: Steve Devino, owner of sound production company Granite Rocks Live, relies on three Metric Halo Mobile I/O 2882 units to meet the often-complex demands of theatricals, concerts, and special events. Although he typically pairs them with an analog console to provide outboard processing or with a digital mixer to add routing and submixing capabilities, the flexibility and reliability of Metric Halo’s 2d and v5 upgrades have begun to change that protocol. More and more, Devino finds himself deploying the Mobile I/O 2882s as standalone, computer-operated mixing systems. more

WHEN INTELLIGIBILITY REALLY MATTERS: WASHINGTON PRO AUDIO TAKES NEUMANN UNDERGROUND FOR PUBLIC SAFETY

washington_metro.JPGWASHINGTON, D.C. – MARCH 2009: Despite the fact that the 86-station Washington Metro rapid transit system in Washington, D.C. serves the seat of U.S. government and would be an obvious target for a terrorist attack, the intelligibility of its paging system was seldom adequate even for routine announcements about train arrivals and schedule changes, let alone sufficient to direct panicked riders to safety in the event of an emergency. In a bold move away from the stereotypically squawky and distorted pages of yesterday, Washington Metro replaced all of its head-end paging-industry-standard announcement microphones with high-end, broadcast-quality Neumann TLM 103s. more
