Main Stage @ the NAMM Show

The Challenge:

The NAMM Show wanted a comprehensive audio and lighting system to buttress performances from world-renowned percussionist Sheila E. and blues guitarist Johnny Lang on its GoPro® stage at the Grand Plaza.

The Solution:

Working with independent live sound engineers Eric Stalhammer and Rebecca Wilson, the team designed and installed a custom HARMAN audio system that featured JBL V20 loudspeakers, S25 and G28 subwoofers, JBL VTX F Series fill speakers and stage monitors. The system also included VERTEC® VT4886 subwoofers, Crown Audio VRACK microphones and a full Martin entertainment lighting system operated by an M1 programmable controller. San Diego-based MSI Production Services provided system support and logistics.

The Impact:

“We are very pleased to be part of the NAMM 2014 GoPro Stage at the Grand Plaza, where attendees can look forward to a good time, great music and experience the very latest in live sound and lighting technology.” – Brian Pickowitz, Associate Director, Live Sound and Rental Systems, HARMAN Professional
