Italy - Rental company CLS has upgraded its Martin Audio inventory by investing in a new Wavefront Precision Mini (WPM) PA rig. The sale to the company, which was set up in the Florence region last year by Duccio Mitola, was handled by Audiosales, Martin Audio’s Italian distributor.
However, Duccio’s experience of the brand extends back seven years earlier when he was operating a W2 as his PA; when he started CLS Martin Audio was again his first port of call as he purchased a Blackline S15 and F10 rig (along with some EM series speakers). As the company expanded its work base he upgraded to a W8LM Mini line array, and it is this that the new technology of the WPM has replaced.
Explaining the purchase Duccio says he had initially been looking to extend his stock of W8LM and approached Audiosales. “But they said ‘why do you want to take the old W8LM when there is now the new Wavefront Precision technology?’”
After being impressed at the demo of the new system, Duccio took the decision to sell his older system in favour of a 16-box WPM purchase, along with two SX218 subwoofers, which will reinforce his existing stock of six WS218X. At the same time CLS added six LE100 stage monitors and some Blackline X. These were also supplied by Stefano Rocchi’s company, whose Audiosales team supported the sale throughout.
“We wanted another compact solution and the WPM also sounded great,” says Duccio. “This will be perfect for the range of shows we do, such as rock, jazz, theatre - anything where good quality sound is required.”
