Our objective is to provide high quality sound systems tailored for winter guard competitions. Your show will be worry free of any sound problems and have consistency at each show. Most guards agree that the sound is a very important part of their show, just as great sound is vital for a movie in a theater.
With our 20+ years of experience we are very familiar with the winter guard sound system layout. We will be set up 1 hour prior to show (in most cases) for sound checks so individual guards may check their music. We will provide a microphone for the announcer, the national anthems and retreat music if needed. Our tech's will operate the systems and adjust them according to the floor judges volume limitations, plus we know when to start the music through protocol.
The following information will be specifications for the sound systems. There are 3 different systems that we spec out for venues depending on size of room and seating. The next paragraph is about the equipment that is used in all the systems, and the following paragraphs after that will describe the equipment for each size room.
The audio mixer has a variety of input types and equalizer adjustments, processor loop capabilities, able to tie in a compressor, and able to control the announcer's microphone and drive balanced signal to power amp rack. The mixer area will be the main control to operate the CD player, cassette player, and microphone. Source equipment will include CD player w/ pitch capability, and anti-shock, cassette player w/ pitch capability and dolby, announcer's microphone will have a switch, preferably on a spring motion.

The mixer table should be set up in seating area facing speaker stacks to ensure the tone quality and also to do the adjusting that is needed throughout the show. Speaker stacks will be located at the back corners of the performance area and should be facing the spectator seating area. The Tech operator understands the concept of color guard protocol before starting any music. The system will be set up one hour prior to start of show for sound checks. We require 3 hours of set up time prier to show start time.
