The 32 channel mixer was recommended and provided by the Cardiff branch of Stage Electrics, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of technical equipment to the entertainment, leisure and presentation industries. Stage Electrics also supplied a Martin Audio Wavefront W2 and WS2A speaker system as part of the upgrade.

Five hundred and thirty students are currently enrolled at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (the ‘Royal’ title was granted by Her Majesty The Queen during her recent Golden Jubilee visit to Wales), situated close to Cardiff city centre. Among the courses on offer are a BA and postgraduate diploma in Stage Management (the post-graduate course being sponsored by Stage Electrics), which both feature a Technical Studies module covering sound and lighting.
Simon Kenning, Account Handler with Stage Electrics, explains why he
recommended the Allen & Heath console:
“The ML3000 provides a lot of versatility and advanced functions like
VCAs, which makes it great for students to learn on. The college are
very happy with the desk and it works brilliantly in conjunction with
their new Martin Audio system”.
