Vera36 makes Dubai debut
UAE: TW Audio’s Vera36 recently made its Dubai debut for The Voice on Tour at The Meydan Hotel. The system was put to use by Backline Stage Services after being purchased through TW Audio’s local distributor Pro Lab Trading LLC.
Backline CEO, Mohamad Altajjar, first heard the manufacturer’s T24 system during a demo in Dubai and subsequently travelled to Pro Light & Sound in Frankfurt to get in touch with the company. At the show, Mr Altajjar heard TW Audio’s Vera36 system, and was reportedly impressed with the audio performance and the SPL from such a compact system.
Following the purchase through Pro Lab, Backline was given comprehensive training from Augustine Edward, technical support engineer for TW Audio in Asia, prior to its debut at The Voice on Tour. The system used at Meydan consisted of 12 Vera36 with four BSX33.
‘We started our investment in Vera36 with 12 tops and eight Vera S33 subwoofers, to get an impression of what the system is able to do regarding handling and sound,’ said Mr Altajjar. ‘We are impressed and this was the confirmation to go for more TW Audio systems.’
Backline now owns 24 TW Audio Vera36, 16 S33s, 14 BSX33s and a Powersoft amplifier setup consisting of 20 K3DSPs. ‘This deal brought a big leap for Pro Lab being a new comer to the market,’ said Pro Lab GM, Jan Tarakji. ‘Backline as with any other rental company is always facing various challenges on site, therefore it was looking for a powerful, flexible and easy to setup line array. It found all these elements available with TW Audio Vera36 cabinets.’
