Sennheiser sponsors Musicians Hall Of Fame & Museum
Sennheiser has been named the official sponsor of the new Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville. The company has outfitted the hall’s performance space with a new Turbosound Aspect speaker system and a wide selection of microphones.
In addition, Turbosound TCS Contractor Series ceiling speakers and an Australian Monitor multi-zone paging system for the screening theater and exhibit areas were included in the install. System design and installation was provided by Lake Forest, IL-based TC Furlong.
The Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum is the brainchild of Nashville songwriter Joe Chambers, who also owns a chain of guitar stores in the area. The 30,000 square foot complex is located in downtown Nashville near the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Gaylord Entertainment Center and Ryman Auditorium.
Facilities include a performance hall, screening theater, music instruction rooms and a state-of-the-art recording studio. It is intended to honor musicians of all genres across the United States.
The Turbosound Aspect system in the performance hall features four of the new TA-500 three-way, full-range enclosures and four Turbosound TSB-118 subwoofers, with four TCS-30 two-way speakers for front fill. Stage monitors include six TFM-212 dual 12in and two TXD-15M single 15in floor wedges. The speaker systems are driven via Turbosound LMS-D26 (mains) and LMS-D24 (monitors) processors through the manufacturer's T-25 and T-45 amplifiers.
The opening celebration for the new facility was also the U.S. debut of the Turbosound TA-500 speakers. Renowned audio engineer TC Furlong mixed the event using an assortment of Sennheiser evolution microphones and wireless systems, augmented by Neumann KSM105 vocal mics. The two-hour jam included artists Vince Gill, Felix Cavaliere, Brent Mason, Garry Tallent and Danny Seraphine, among many others.
