Nowhere did things start out more sketchy, but end more rocking, than a recent performance at Atlanta’s Masquerade, a club that draws the crowds despite a woefully outdated and semi-functional sound system. With the help of Danley Sound Labs engineer, Ivan Beaver, the band’s FOH engineer Evan Kirkendall, owner of Harford Sound, located in Abington, Maryland, replaced the Masquerade’s crusty horns and tattered woofers with a stack of Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers, led by eight of Danley’s new powerhouse full-range SH-46s. Despite prospects to the contrary, All Time Low rocked the Masquerade with clarity, bass, and hit-you-in-the-chest punch that left the club’s seasoned staff uttering rivers of awe-inspired and artfully crafted expletives. more

SENNHEISER’S 935 MIC SUCCESS STORY CONTINUES WITH JAKE OWEN
