The Brand does Matter
« on: May 11, 2014, 10:35:49 pm »

We did a show at a local theatre this weekend. I went up and had a great chat with the sound dude, asking him about his rig. He explained they would be in the process of putting in all new equipment in, soon. So I prodded further and ask what they plan on installing. He said it won't be Behringer. Why I ask? He told me that some acts have it in their contract not preform if the B equipment is installed.  I said you are joking? Not at all , he explained. He has a Midas installed now.

No Behringer, no Mackie, no Allen and Heath, pretty common stuff

Behringer and Mackie I can (sort of) understand.  But why A & H?

"No Peavey" was another common one back in the day, wasn't it?

I have used more Allen and Heath than anything else and have never had a problem with their EQ or  other feature.

While Allen and Hearh made and still makes great boards, their primary market was entry level gear. If you had a A&H, you probably didn't have a Midas, Ramsa, or high end Yamaha, or much else for high end gear in the truck.

I think that this will be a shrinking sediment from here on out.  All of the new gen digital boards are quite capable within their limits.

I never knew ramsa was high end..guess that was before my time.

I consider the ilive high end. Way better than an x32.
