"The McCauley system sounded the best and their people were very helpful. The horizontal coverage was quite good compared to their competitors, and the MLA3 particularly outshined them all."
Sound Decision Productions
Mark Hartzell’s Wisconsin-based Sound Decision Productions has been providing top-notch audio and lighting services to Midwest venues and artists for nearly ten years. With over twenty-five years of experience between Mark and his lighting design partner Andrew Brown, Sound Decision Productions knows good gear when they see (and hear) it.
So, when Sound Decision needed to add to their touring class PA inventory last year, they decided on McCauley Sound’s MONARC MLA3 system.
As Mark noted, “The McCauley system sounded the best and their people were very helpful. The horizontal coverage was quite good compared to their competitors, and the MLA3 particularly outshined them all.” McCauley’s support was also a deal-maker for Sound Decision: “Other line array companies fell on their face. It took forever for them to get back to us.” The only time that they called us back was when McCauley had already sent out a demo.” In fact, Mark was so impressed with the performance of his MONARC MLA3s, and with McCauley’s support service, that he has recently added another four MLA3s to his rig.
These additional McCauley cabinets were required due to Sound Decision’s continuous growth and their desire to provide the very best audio to ever-larger acts and venues. Recently, Mark needed even more gear, and McCauley Sound came through for him. “I did a show at the ‘Eagle's Club Ballroom’ in Milwaukee for a [C&W artist on MCA Nashville Records] Gary Allan a few weeks ago,” Mark says. This major act needed major sound
and, together, Sound Decision Productions and McCauley Sound delivered: “I managed to get a hold of another 8 (cells) courtesy of McCauley Sound, to do our show,” said Mark, “These guys know how to support their owners!”
