Triple Showtechniek invests for Jan Smit Tour

“For a tour in this category, you need the ultimate audio package. With the new systems, we can achieve the very highest standards.”

The rental company Triple Showtechniek has invested in an extensive audio package that includes systems from Electro-Voice, Klark Teknik and Midas for this summer’s Jan Smit Tour

Straubing, Germany, June 2006: Jan Smit first achieved stardom in his native Holland nine years ago. Since then, the vocalist has matured into an internationally acclaimed performer whose tours are among the most successful and lavish productions in the pop business. The rental company responsible for Smit’s upcoming tour of the Netherlands and Germany is Triple Showtechniek based in Purmerend. With a view to achieving perfect results acoustically, the Dutch touring company’s audio specialists launched an investment offensive ordering an extensive package of Electro-Voice, Klark Teknik and MIDAS pro audio systems from the Dutch EV distributor, Electric Audio B.V and Midas Consoles Holland. The shopping list included:

18 x EV Xlc 127+

8 x EV Xsubs

6 x EV RX-153

A selection of EV CP 2200, CP 3000, CP 4000 amps

Klark Teknik Square One

Several Klark Teknik DN-9848 E system controllers

MIDAS Heritage H 2000 (FOH)

MIDAS Heritage H 3000 (monitor)

Commented Rene Tielen, Triple Showtechniek’s MD: “For a tour in this category, you need the ultimate audio package. With the new systems, we can achieve the very highest standards.“ Added Tielen’s colleague, Marco Hovius: “The advice and start up / rehearsal support we received from Midas Consoles Holland and Electric Audio B.V. was outstanding. The new setup brings our company defiantly to a higher standard in concert sound.“ From child star to a top international act “Ik zing dit lied voor jou alleen“ (in English: “I sing this song for you alone“) was the song with which Jan Smit (or “Jantje“ as he was then known) broke through to stardom in the Netherlands. That was nine years ago. The likeable and highly talented vocalist - winner recently of the prestigious Dutch Edison award for Best Singer of 2006 - is now 21 and an internationally acclaimed star with over five albums currently on sale in Germany alone.
