Professional audio systems specialist Shermann UK is reporting excellent orders for two powerful PA products launched in November last year. Shermann's MRL-3, a compact multi-role loudspeaker and the powerful R118-B single 18" VLF system, have already seen success on busy tour schedules by Steeleye Span and Maddy Prior. More orders are now being received from across Wales and the UK. The sound system for the recent Maddy Prior tour was provided by Woking-based Kinetic, one of the network of rental companies who use Shermann equipment. The Shermann R118-B and MRL-3 were also used by Kinetic for Premier Radio's Christmas Party at Westminster Hall where Sir Cliff Richard played a major part in the celebrations.

Kinetic auditioned the prototype R118-B single 18" VLF system on several gigs last September and was delighted with the smooth, powerful LF response and system flexibility. It is now being used on a wide variety of tours and gigs along with the Shermann CA3 models. Shermann UK first introduced the new model to a local audience last November when it was put to the test at the annual fireworks display in the company's home town of Newtown, where just eight of these compact cabinets managed to rattle windows over a mile away.

"Early sales of the Shermann R118-B and MRL-3 have been excellent and our order book for the coming months is very healthy," said Shermann UK managing director Ken Hughes. With a network of professional users, installers and dealerships across the country, Shermann's widely respected loudspeaker systems are in widespread use at major music festivals, corporate events and rock concerts at home and overseas.
