Neutrik, the designers and manufacturers of the XX Series XLR cable connector, provides assistance to schools across the nation. Recently, they contributed products to a music school in Nashville, Tenn. This donation will help assist the teachers to demonstrate how to assemble cables and connectors.
“Neutrik believes that music is an integral component to a successful education,” stated Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. “We are so happy that we are able to contribute in any way to The Steve Hurst Music School. Ultimately, it is the people who use our connectors, solder and terminate them who appreciate the quality and consistent performance Neutrik provides.”
The Steve Hurst School of Music has six programs of study including extensive study in Voice, Piano, Songwriting, Praise & Worship (Church Music), Sound and Group Training for Organized Groups. Their curriculum is designed to enhance the individual style and ministry calling of each student.
The program that will be using Neutrik’s connectors has a purpose of understanding more about the cabling position, and has seen an increase in registry for the past two years that it has been running. The cabling classes are comprised of sound engineers who have been elected to operate their sound at their local church or touring group, or simply individuals in the industry who desire to learn more about the technological aspects they work with every day.
“We have used Neutrik products for seminars in the school in the past, and there has always been a great response,” stated Terry Shell, Co-Founder of The Steve Hurst School of Music. “The students who use these materials in their professional routines appreciate the quality of these products. Even those who are not familiar with the technical aspects of the industry enjoy the ease of being able to assemble without having to solder them together.”
Shell continues, “Neutrik enables us to show students how easy it is to work with a top quality product. The EZ series is phenomenal; Neutrik connectors are more solid and durable than any other products we have seen from other manufacturers.”
Neutrik has agreed to donate 200 NC3FEZY-AU or NC3FEZY-B combinations, as well as another 200 NC3MEZY-AU or NC3MEZY-B combinations. The students will use these donations to assemble a 25-foot microphone cable, which they will then take back to their church or touring group to use.
