OLD LYME, CONNECTICUT - JULY 2009: The Sennheiser StageMeister competition has its first winner. Isaac Eydlin from Mississauga in Canada will accompany Simple Plan on their live tour this summer. For the prospective sound engineer this is a dream come true. "I am overjoyed to have been chosen as the North American winner of the Sennheiser StageMeister competition," said Eydlin. "It is a dream come true to be able to hit the road with a band as amazing as Simple Plan. I am studying live sound engineering, and now for the first time I will be part of a major tour production."
Susanne Seidel, president global marketing for the audio specialist Sennheiser, congratulated Isaac. "I am really pleased that the jury selected Isaac. The production manager of Simple Plan was impressed by his professionalism and commitment," Seidel related. "I hope that this win will give Isaac not only valuable tour experience but also further opportunities and contacts for his future career."
As part of his prize the 26-year-old has already completed a four-day training course with Sennheiser in the USA. The program included wireless microphone and monitor technology, microphone system set-up, vocal and instrument microphones, tour etiquette and RF troubleshooting on the road. "I was immediately part of the Sennheiser family and was able to familiarize myself with all the products used by Simple Plan. The highlights for me were learning about tour etiquette and the hands-on RF troubleshooting. I know that if I run into a problem on the road, there is a great support system built for me to contact along the way."
