On Stage Audio (Chicago), the audio division of OSA International, has been supplying A/V systems to the corporate industrial arena and special-event markets. The company recently expanded its scope into the live sound market with five new "entertainment" systems. Terry Murphy, a live sound professional with eight years of experience, joined On Stage Audio in November 2002 to head up this area of growth.
Since then, the live sound division has added more than 10 new accounts, including the Fremont Street Experience, Station Casinos, Rain at the Palms, Mandalay Bay/Encore Productions and the University of Nevada/Las Vegas.
Recently, On Stage Audio purchased a host of new Drawmer gear, including 30 DL241 2-channel compressors, 10 DL4044-channel compressors, 20 DS501 power gates and seven 1969 mic pre's. Commenting on the purchase, Murphy said, "Basically, it's the [Drawmer] sound. Drawmer is known for its transparent sound quality. Let's face it, in a rental situation, you accommodate riders and the vast majority of them specify Drawmer. No one ever says 'no' to Drawmer."
On Stage Audio has already completed more than 25 live shows with the new equipment, including sound for six stages this past New Year's Eve.
