String Quartet | Nissan Teana Roadshow | KL Malaysia

String Quartet from performed at Nissan Teana’s Roadshow in One Utama Shopping Complex, Petaling Jaya on the 7th and 8th of December 2013 (between 1 - 5pm)

The sound system was not available on Day 1 and the quartet was totally inaudible.

Thus the only microphone which was available on site was place near the first violinist and Lo and behold, the quartet could be heard again.

Though it was on the soft side but not bad for a contingency plan!

On Day 2, Nissan decided to bring a basic sound system to amplify the performers. Each instrument was mic-up and the sound was clear and full during the 1st set performance.

However, the sound quality could not be reproduce later for some technical reason. There wasn’t a fix space allocated for the band to performed so the sound equipment and chairs had to be assembled and disassembled after each performance set which I suspect was the cause of the audio irregularities.

The musicians were a bit fazed by the circumstance but continued performing their best.

They included some Christmas songs onto their selections as after all, it is that time of the year!

The take away for today is the importance of sound amplification from a professional sound vendor. The value of a good sound system is often overlooked when we attend an event and the sound is pleasant.

It is a worthy investment to hire one in order to avoid any potential grievances and to ensure the success of the event.
