Capital Sound adds d&b J-Series to touring arsenal
Loudspeaker system purchase comes just weeks after the rental firm's investment in Outline's GTO line array technology.
Capital Sound has added a J-Series d&b audiotechnik system to it loudspeaker inventory just weeks after its recent investment in Outline’s GTO line array technology.
d&b becomes the fourth brand to be added to Capital’s offering to provide an extra dimension to its concert touring packages following a rise in client demand.
The J-Series systems are complimented by D80 amplification and the company’s new B-Series subs.
“Historically, we have had a strong presence in the concert touring market and we always want to make sure we have a complete range of up-to-date products to cater for current day demands,” said Capital’s general manager, Paul Timmins. “The d&b system is both versatile and incredibly rider friendly, which ensures we continue to keep pace with the requirements of larger-scale tours.
“The new B22 subs are one of three d&b sub options purchased and, as d&b has released array processing with the D80 (a technique that can only be done with this new amplification), it means we can now design systems with array processing in mind.”
The first outing for Capital’s d&b system will be with English singer-songwriter Jess Glynne on her February UK tour, which takes in O2 venues around the country.
“Jess is doing fantastically well, having had five number one singles last year,” said Timmins. “And we’re thrilled to be able to be able to put our new system through its paces with one of the UK’s most exciting female artists.”
