Miami-based Drummer Boy Sound Productions, Inc. (DBS) supplied sound reinforcement for an HIV awareness concert on June 27 called “Show You Know.â€? Admittance to the concert was free for free following an on-site AIDS test by each participant. Event organizers Rize and Shine, Inc. were able to test 5,000 people before the event began.
A variety of R&B, Gospel, Hip-Hop, and Pop artists took the stage at the concert, including City of God, Dangerflow, Kane, Lavie, Hinds Feet, Stitches with special headline guest Pitbull, and Trick Daddy. The system at the benefit was a Dynacord Cobra system. DBS CEO Harold Cummings comments:
â€œI have been a fan of the Cobra for about four years now because it always delivers and sounds amazing. Lavie, who has a soulful Erica Bahdu style of singing, loves the crystal clear sound of the rig. She said, â€˜As
I was arriving to the park, I could hear the National Anthem being sung clearly, without seeing the stage.â€™ And the lead singer for City of God went crazy over the EV QRx112 and how powerful and clear they sounded. He said, â€˜We play a lot of stages all over the country and we don’t always get good stage monitoring, but today was some of the best monitor mixing we have ever had.â€™â€?
What City of God and the other acts didn’t know is that DBS just changed the QRx monitor amp rack to all-new EV Q99 amplifiers, the real stars of the show.
â€œThe amps helped bring my EV monitors to life and gave them a sonic clarity I haven’t heard in the three years of owning them,â€? says Cummings. â€œJeff Stoyer, from Florida rep firm Sales Force Rep, told me about the new line of Q Series amps and what they could do in a smaller package. We took one on a test drive and a few days later I ordered four of them. Now have another 12 Q1212 on the way. The Q Series amps have become my new amplifier standard. Once you get one in your hands, you’ll see why.â€?
