YSS Chooses KV2

November 2015

Yorkshire Stage and Sound (YSS) has added KV2 Audio to its hire inventory.


Based between Harrogate and York, YSS offers full event production all over the UK including lighting, generator hire, power distribution and full event management, as well as staging and sound.


Over the last few years YSS has invested in a selection of products from the active EX range, passive ESM monitor range as well as a complete Active-Driven ES System. 


Director Mike Redpath said: “I turned up with my smallest EX rig for a band gig – two EX10 tops and two EX 2.2 subs. The bands looked confused and thought that there was nowhere near enough equipment. I reassured them that the gig would be excellent and they should wait to see how soundcheck goes. The bands were blown away with what came out of such a small rig – a regular occurrence!”


As YSS’s events grew in size and scale, Redpath took the decision to invest in “Bertha” - a trailer-based full sized concert stage spanning 12 metres that is one of the largest of its kind in the Yorkshire region.


To compliment this purchase Redpath needed an audio system capable of covering the large outdoor events that the stage is intended to cater for. Once again Redpath had no hesitation in turning to KV2 Audio, this time taking the decision to invest in KV2 Audio’s flagship VHD System.


“Whether it is the smallest EX product or our complete VHD System the saying that always comes to mind to describe KV2 products is ‘Small but Mighty,’” Redpath commented. “The VHD tops being so powerful yet compact make it incredibly simple to get the system in the air with Bertha. If I looked at a line array solution I would have to spend hours rigging and setting the system up to end up with inferior results – especially as all these sized events are outside where the unpredictable weather elements can play havoc with multi-point systems.”


YSS also stocks consoles, stage boxes, cabling and microphones, as well as also boasting KV2’s JK DI boxes and line drivers.
