Rental company Westfalen Sound Schallwand CEO Carl Cordier (pictured) has added Meyer Sound equipment to the company’s arsenal of sound reinforcement gear.
“Touring the factory and meeting with John and Helen Meyer convinced me that Meyer Sound continues to create superior, sophisticated technologies that will enable us to better serve our clients,” says Cordier. “Additionally, the company’s commitment to customer support is unprecedented.” Meyer Sound has deep roots in the German market, so local support to Westfalen will be provided by Meyer Sound Germany and Meyer Sound’s Munich-based technical support representative, Thomas Mundorf.
Westfalen’s new cache of MICA compact high-power curvilinear loudspeakers, CQ-1 wide-coverage main loudspeakers, UPA-1P compact wide-coverage loudspeakers and UM-1P narrow-coverage stage monitors was put to the test by Austrian singer Udo Jürgens, when he kicked off his German tour in Heilbronn on January 20. The tour comprises more than 40 dates at arenas throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria, concluding March 18 at Kempten, Germany’s BigBOX Allgäu.
“We are pleased to welcome Carl Cordier and Westfalen Sound into the Meyer Sound family,” says executive VP Helen Meyer, “and we are always excited to have an artist the caliber of Udo Jürgens using our products.”
