“DC Productions chooses Adamson to assist growth
Published: 3 Sep 2014
AUSTRALIA: An Adamson SpekTrix line array has become the latest addition to the rental stock of DC Productions, a fast-growing hire company based in the Perth suburb of Welshpool. Supplied by CMI Music and Audio Pty Ltd, the system is intended to help the company cater for larger events and was reportedly chosen following a period of evaluation.
Founded seven years ago and serving both central Perth and its surrounding areas, DC Productions (also known as Dream Catcha Productions) already holds a considerable inventory with cabinets including Nexo’s Geo S Series, dB Technologies enclosures, and HK Audio’s Contour Array plus amplifiers from MC2 and Camco. The Adamson SpekTrix system – comprising eight tops and four subs – is described by the company’s Jeremy Harris as ‘the shining new light’ in the product line-up.
‘The decision to invest in a new line array system was not taken lightly,’ explained Mr Harris. ‘With the continued growth of DC Productions in the concert field, our shows keep getting larger and the artists more specific in their tech riders. We found that our current systems just weren’t big enough to do 3,000 people and upwards, yet we were consistently getting asked to cover these kinds of shows. We needed to make a call to either knock back the work coming our way or reinvest in the company to ensure that we catered for our ever-growing client base.’
Mr Harris added that the choice of Adamson followed a thorough investigation ‘of all the major line array brands. We compared them side-by-side on value for money, return of investment, current technology and pending advancements, ease of servicing and procurement, ease of set up, transportation, operation and how solid our relationship was with the provider of the equipment. After we’d done all our research Adamson was a logical choice. It’s a regularly specified brand on current riders around Australia and we can expand on the current rig and hire boxes in should we need to. Then there’s the sound quality, which is second to none, and the rig is compact enough that two or three guys can set it up’.
The rental company’s existing relationship with CMI Music and Audio reportedly assisted the process. ‘Having a long-standing relationship with CMI really helped us in working out the finer details,’ Mr Harris conceded. ‘There’s a level of trust there that has been built over seven years and I think they respect that and where we as a business are heading.’
Regarding the company’s future plans, Mr Harris concluded: ‘Over the next five years we’ll be actively looking to expand into the concert market, taking on more of the larger shows both outdoor and in the expanding corporate market in Perth. In addition we’ll continue our support of various charities and organisations including the Mental Health Commission and the setting up of a musical instrument library in Holguin, Cuba, via a project called Containers For Cuba. We’ll expand on our inventory of Adamson as we see the growth of the company continue, whilst also putting the focus on opening a new division for staging and ground supports.’ ”
