Gary Allan Tour Stop: Yamaha and NEXO All the Way

April, 2013

NEXO GEO S12 and PM5000 Highlight Country Concert

The place was the American Music Venue in Lancaster, PA. on a late day in March. Country artist Gary Allan performed in support of his latest CD "Set You Free". Bauder Audio (Horsham, PA) provided a NEXO GEO S12 line array for the date with support from Tom Hogle, Bauder systems engineer and Sean Gary, A2 for Gary Allan. 24 NEXO GEO S12s over eight RS18 Ray Subs were all powered and processed with NXAMP4X4 amplifiers.

"Besides the fact that the GEO S12 sounds great, it is easy to set up which makes for a quick load in,” states Hogle. “NEXO continues to manufacturer studio monitors for large venues!" remarked Chris “Sully” Sullivan after mixing front of house for the show.

Tucked behind the NEXO arrays, Jason Spence specified a Yamaha PM5000 console for the entire Gary Allan tour, provided by Sound Image of Nashville. "We had options and, in fact, listened to other consoles, notes Spence. However, after listening to the 5K, Gary and the band chose to go analog. The production requirements did not necessitate a digital mixer so we went with the PM5000."
