Sennheiser’s Digital 9000 wireless system was deployed for a Bruno Mars and Paloma Faith concert held at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre in April, the first time that the system was used for a live concert in the Middle East. Mig Cardamone, sales and marketing manager at Sennheiser Middle East commented, “Bruno Mars' appearance in Dubai has been a widely anticipated event given the singer's immense popularity. Delta Sound, who provided the equipment rental for the show, were commissioned to ensuring the very best audio experience for the over 15,000 audience at the sold-out venue. Sennheiser equipment regularly features on the technical riders for many of the most famous artists in the world and so we suggested to Delta that they use the new Digital 9000 to showcase the new benchmark in wireless microphone audio quality, knowing that they could rely on our industry renowned reliability.” In addition to the Digital 9000 system, Delta Sound equipped Bruno Mars, Paloma Faith and the accompanying performers with a mix of Sennheiser’s G3 and 2000 Series in-ear monitors. “Sennheiser microphones and wireless equipment feature on most international riders that we find ourselves catering for here in the UAE, as well as neighbouring GCC countries. In the rental market, working with and being able to provide such equipment makes our jobs a little easier. Never having used the 9000 series before, both Bruno Mars production and Delta Sound engineers were pleased with the capability of the versatile system,” said Robert Eatock, Delta Sound’s project and sound engineer. The full list of Sennheiser equipment included:
2 x AC3200 antennae combiner 16ch Sennheiser SR2050 IEM system with 24 EK2000 packs, complete with A5000-CP antennae and batteries 8ch Sennheiser EM9046 rack with 2 SKM9000 hand helds (MD9235 caps), 4 SK9000 packs with DAD6003 adaptors 8ch Sennheiser EM3732-II rack with 8 SKM5200-II (MD5235 caps) 6 ch for BM and 2 ch for Paloma Faith 8ch Sennheiser G3 IEM kit with 12 EK300 packs used for Paloma Faith 4 x E904 used on drum kit for Paloma Faith 2 x E906 used on Guitar cab for Paloma Faith 3 x E614 used on drum kit for Paloma Faith
