Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) MicroWedge stage monitors continue to take the spotlight at live sound venues throughout Chicago. T.C. Furlong, president of TC Furlong Inc, reports recent sales to Lincoln Hall, Old Town School of Folk Music, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Green Mill.
“These are marquee clients that represent some of the more notable live venues in the metropolitan area,” explains Furlong. “The popularity of the MicroWedge does not seem to diminish. The small footprint is ideal for crowded stages and their high output makes them useful for any act that needs stage monitors. Plus, they are rider friendly – everyone that uses them loves them.”
Furlong notes that Lincoln Hall increased their inventory by nine MW15, Old Town School Of Folk Music by eight MW12, Lyric Opera of Chicago added six MW12 while The Green Mill invested in two additional MW12 enclosures. The MicroWedge Series consists of the MW10, MW12, MW15 and MW18.
“I spent many years working on designing the ultimate stage monitor, that is acoustically, visually and ergonomically optimized,” explains Rat. “The Microwedge project is all about perfecting a compact, attractive, turnkey wedge system that sounds great and reaches high gain before feedback levels with minimal effort.”
In addition to the recent acquisitions, Furlong adds that his company also keeps a dozen MW12s in their rental inventory – which see plenty of action throughout the year.
Furlong concludes: “The EAW MicroWedge is still the go-to conventionally-powered stage monitor in the industry. Its continued popularity is not only proof of the product, but also of its capabilities.”
