PA Shop Adds to Adamson Inventory

Canadian-based PA Shop Productions recently bolstered its rental inventory with an investment in Adamson Systems Engineering’s E-Series and S-Series loudspeakers.

The system saw plenty of action on major tours and music festivals in the latter half of 2017 and now, The PA Shop is ready for the delivery of Adamson’s Systems Engineering training at its headquarters on 26-27 February 2018.

“We’d been back-and-forth with Jeremiah Karni, Application Engineer with Adamson, examining our options and putting several products through their paces in real-world applications,” said The PA Shop’s Vice President and Production Manager, Kyle Schroeyens. “Needless to say, we were blown away by their performance, but also by the care and service we received from the team at Adamson. That made it even clearer that we’d made the right decision.”

The PA Shop’s new Adamson package is comprised of 24 E15 and six E12 three-way line array enclosures, 32 E119 subwoofers, and 36 S10 2-way, true line source enclosures. The system has already seen plenty of action in a relatively short period, providing sound for a number of high-profile artists like Diplo, Foreigner, Lady Antebellum, Wiz Khalifa, and The Offspring in both outdoor festival applications and inside the Budweiser Gardens.

“I had a great experience with Adamson and the PA Shop at the Rock the Park Festival,” said Melvin Godfrey, FOH engineer with Canadian pop/rock outfit Marianas Trench. “Due to noise restrictions, I wasn’t able to sound check the day of our performance. When I loaded my file for the show, my mix translated very well. The vocals were incredibly clear and I could hear all the desired separation in the mix. In pop music, vocals are key, and the E15 is an incredible PA for vocal clarity.”

The company will present Adamson’s standardised Applied Certification from 26-27 Feb at its London, ON headquarters. The program is designed to instill the basic framework needed to properly design, deploy, and control an Adamson loudspeaker system. The focus is on the E-Series and S-Series, touching on the technology that provides that backbone for these systems as well as a basic module on alignment.

“Having spent a few weekends out with the team at The PA Shop, I know first-hand that they offer solutions and service that are second to none, regardless of the size of the application,” commented Jeremiah Karni, Applications Engineer with Adamson. “I’m thrilled to welcome The PA Shop to the Adamson Network and look forward to working closely with them throughout 2018 and beyond.”
