Austrian-based engineering company Pollmann recently held its 125th anniversary celebration in the sports hall in Waidhofen an der Thaya in Austria.
The event saw over 800 guests in attendance and Austrian rental company, Stagesound Event Technology, supplied the sound equipment.
Stagesound used two AKG GN30 gooseneck microphones with CK31 high-performance condenser microphone capsules for each speaker.
System engineer at Stagesound, Markus Kouba says: ”Although the majority of speakers were professional presenters, the event also featured several untrained speakers. For these inexperienced speakers we wanted to make the system as easy to use as possible while still providing a clear sound to the audience. The AKG microphones more than met that requirement.”
Two AKG C414 B-ULS condenser microphones were used for drum overheads and several D112 microphones were used for the kick drum and bass amplifiers. Stagesound also used four C518 M miniature clamp-on microphones on the toms and snares.
“The AKG microphones impressed, with clear sound and simple handling,” adds Kouba. “We are very satisfied with the performance and with AKG in general for all of our events around Austria. It is important as a rental company to have equipment that will withstand the unique technical riders for each event, as well as the transportation and wear and tear during each project.”
