Rane Brothers Sound System, a Mumbai-based rental company that specialises in classical concerts, has invested in a substantial stock of Meyer Sound Leopard line arrays systems and 900-LFC low-frequency control elements. The purchase was facilitated by Meyer Sound’s Indian distributor, Sun Infonet.
‘Due to an increase in demand for the latest equipment for classical shows, we were looking for a system that could deliver the best quality of sound to reinforce vocals, so that the listeners can enjoy traditional acoustic instruments such as the flute, sitar, sarod, tabla and mridangam,’ explained Prashant Rane, sound engineer and owner of Rane Brothers. ‘We had listening tests comparing different brands. Each of them had their own unique features, but we chose to invest in Meyer Sound. The main reasons were its reliability, easy-to-use technology and the linear sound the systems deliver. An added benefit is the global reputation that the Meyer Sound brand commands and after adding it to our inventory, I am more confident that we will be able to exceed the expectations of our customers.’
Rane Brothers first deployed the new system for a corporate, classical-fusion concert performed by santoor maestro Rahul Sharma and his band in Mumbai. The concert was attended by 1,000 Indian and international delegates. Mr Rane used the Leopard’s Native Mode, negating the need for external processing and saving time on set up.
