After performances at Biltmore Park summer concerts:

we'd personally like to thank everyone @ Alan Phillips Sound - fantastic sound and great people to work with - absolute professionals and kudos to you guys for hiring such a good quality sound service - hopefully we get to work with them again in the future! Rob @ Rathkeltair

...Also would like to let you know that we play several of these type events and it was such a joy to work with someone as talented and professional as Alan Phillips running sound and lights. We received many positive comments concerning the quality of his sound mix. …and obviously as musicians we could tell it was great! Rex Cutshall

Biltmore Concerts

Event PA system

Based in Asheville North Carolina (Fairview) this Sound System with engineer is for hire. Fees include Delivery, load in, setup, sound check, performance, and load out. Since venue particulars vary, as does my schedule, please call for quotes:

The Yamaha LS9-16 digital mixing console is capable of six stage monitor mixes, and includes on-board: omni delay, compression, equalization, stereo record and playback. With the MY16-AT ADAT card installed and light piped to a Behringer Ultragain ADA8200, the LS9 is expandable to 24 analog inputs. Sixteen optical ouputs are available for multi-track hard disk recording via the MOTU 2408mk2.

Many times it's not conducive to run cables to a sound console in the audience. With the StageMix Application, wireless audio mixing is an eloquent solution.

Equipment List:

  • House system: two JBL EON612 self powered loudspeakers, and two 18" EAW sub-woofers powered by twin Crown XTi 4000's. (Stereo tri-amped system)
  • Stage system: Four EV Sx80's and two Turbosound TXD-12M floor monitors.
  • The Eon's, Turbos, and SX80's may be pole mounted and tilted for FOH and delayed speaker distribution.
  • Consoles: Yamaha LS9-16 and MG102c ten channel conferencing mixers. iPod and laptop hookups are always available.
  • Lights: Two Chauvet Mini 4 Bar LED light trees with random and audio triggers.

Microphones include: three Shure SM58, four SM57, three Audio Technica Pro35, three Sennheiser Evolution series e604 drum mics, one PG52 kick drum mic, one AT 4033 large diaphragm microphone, three Crown PZM disc microphones, two Shure PG58 hand-held wireless, and four PG1 wireless body packs with Microphone Madness earset microphones.
