Bill Kenwright’s production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and TimRice’s hit musical Joseph and the Amazing TechnicolorDreamcoat is using Martin Audio’s Wavefront system for itsredesigned 2003/4 national tour.
Chris Full of Autograph Sound has revamped the sound design for theproduction, which has been touring regional theaters in the UK since1997. He has chosen Martin Audio for the new rig, specifically 10 WT3sand four WS2A subs, with analog processing.
“The sound design for Joseph required a versatile,high-power sound system that also fulfilled the budget requirements ofthe show. I had used the WT3s and baby subs before and liked the waythe system sounded—particularly with respect to throwing thesound to the back of a venue. We are not using delays as the turnaroundbetween venues is very short.
“When it came to buying new cabinets, the W3T system was myfirst choice,” continued Full. “The high power handling ofthe Wavefront boxes gives me more than enough SPL in the room, alongwith plenty of headroom for a good transient response.”
