KV2 provides sound for Albert Lee’s 70th26 February 2014
The world famous country-rock guitarist, Albert Lee, will perform two concerts at the Cadogan Hall in London at the beginning of March, in celebration of his 70th birthday.
Lee and his band will perform with various high profile guest musicians – Joe Brown, Chas & Dave, Marty Wilde, Bruce Welch, Andy Fairweather Low and Ralph McTell to name just a few – and the concerts and the build up will be filmed for a forthcoming documentary.
Concert producer David Mann has decided to use KV2 Audio’s “Very High Definition” VHD System, instead of Cadogan Hall’s in-house system.
The VHD System, built around the VHD 2.0 Mid/High unit, features a large format 3” compression driver, two 8” transcoil mid-range drivers and two 12” low/mid drivers accompanied by VHD 2.16 double 15” subwoofers and associated VHD 2000 and VHD 3200 amplifiers.
In addition to the FOH system, the monitoring system will also consist of KV2 products: eight ESM 12 and ESM 26 speakers as well as KV2 Audio ESP amplification.
Yamaha is an official partner for the anniversary gig, and so a CL5 mixing console has been chosen by Mann for FOH sound. Yamaha instruments that will appear at the show include PHX Phoenix Drums and an N3 AvantGrand hybrid piano, plus two CP1 Stage Pianos, a Motif XF8 synthesizer and a Yamaha SLB-200 Silent Upright Bass.
