New large-scale JBL VerTec concert systems have been purchased by several leading firms in Eastern European countries, including Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Serbia/Montenegro.
“The recent VerTec sales in Eastern Europe are indicative of the thriving tour business in this part of the world,” said Martin Seidl, European director of sales for JBL Professional. “In addition to sound companies choosing VerTec because of its flexibility, power and easy setup, it’s becoming more and more of a straightforward business decision for rental companies, as VerTec is often specified in many technical riders for touring artists.”
Studio Berar, a full-service audio and concert production company in Serbia, recently purchased a system of 24 VT4889 full-size line array elements, powered by Crown I-Tech amplifiers. “Our company has always been oriented toward quality,” noted Slobodan “Bob” Veckalov, who is responsible for customer outreach in Studio Berar. “Now with a JBL VerTec line array on hand, we are able to meet the most demanding contract riders for the professional touring artists. The recent concert in Belgrade with Luciano Pavarotti is a good example of the type of work we are doing.”
The Pavarotti concert relied on two Crown-powered arrays each comprising 10 VT4889 full-size enclosures. Additionally, four VT4887 compact line array elements were arrayed on each side for “extreme side” coverage. The system was controlled by a dbx DriveRack 480 and also featured BSS active microphone splitters.
Other companies in the region now equipped with JBL VerTec VT4889 systems include Joker Media in Bulgaria, Amex Ltd. in Slovakia and Sfinx Experience CDA in Bucharest, Romania.
