The Hague is breeding ground of many major dutch bands, of which Golden Earring is the most well known. Holland is very rich in clubs, where volunteers go hand in hand with professional engineers. This means an ideal place to develop skills for artists as well as engineers. It goes without saying that The Hague’s premium pop club has to live up to the expectations, and in technical sense it more than does so. A major upgrade in their mixing and monitoring systems confirms a top position for famous pop-venue ‘Paard’. Head engineer Wauter Wormser and his team turned to Ampco Flashlight for both disciplines.  


Mixers & Monitors

After extensive sessions of testing and demo’s (isn’t that what engineers like the most..) Paard chose for an extensive mixer setup featuring Allen & Heath and DiGiCo, all accompanied by their proprietary racks and networking. 

The upgrade consists of DiGiCo SD5 CS for FOH and monitors in the main venue, including SD racks running on 32Bit. The adjacent hall welcomed two Allen & Heath dLive systems, and for mobile purposes an SD11 with SD rack was added. On the monitoring side a combination of 23 d&b audiotechnik M4 wedges, 8 B4 subs and 11 D80 amps form flexible combinations to cater for artist monitoring, DJ monitors and sidefills. Both Paard crew and visiting bands and engineers have responded very positively to these improvements. Paard is ready for the next ten years!

Goede service en seminars cq gebruikers informatie
Bij Ampco - Flashligt deel genomen aan de Allen & Heath seminar SQ. Seminar werd gegeven door Fred Thomas. We zijn hartelijk ontvangen en in korte tijd door Fred door de SQ heen geleid.

Erg veel geleerd, en onder de indruk van de SQ serie. Er stonden voor de deelnemers een SQ klaar om tijdens het seminar direct alles uit te proberen, aan het einde nog tijd om zelf de mixer uit te proberen.

Hartelijk dank aan Ampco en Fred.
