Martin Audio Blackline for new north-east pub/club

27 October 2003

UK - The Cross Keys in Yarm, Cleveland, recently under new ownership, has emerged from a comprehensive refurbishment as one of the most stylish and contemporary pub/club venues in the north-east. The Grade II-listed public house has been given its technical make-over by Music Marketing Services, which has installed new lighting and Martin Audio sound systems throughout.

Pete Varey of Music Marketing Services, who installed a Martin Audio Blackline PA system upstairs in the Cross Keys' nightclub, explained: "It was entirely the client's choice; they'd heard a system at a club in Middlesborough and wanted one for themselves." Four F15 high-performance compact two-way cabinets are flown above the new flashing dancefloor, with two S218 sub-bass bins built into the walls below the mid/high cabinets. Eight ultra-compact EM26 boxes provide infill.

Downstairs in the Keys Bar, another extensive Martin Audio installation includes ten EM26 two-way enclosures and four EM15s. Throughout the venue, Music Marketing Services has used top-end Pioneer DJ equipment, once again the choice of the client. Varey commented: "The venue needed to have a PA system that would be equally at home with '70s-style night-clubby music and glam rock, and also with serious dance music on club nights. Also, the bar area on the ground floor required a system which would sound good at high levels in the evening but equally as good at low levels during the day - a good reason for choosing the Martin Audio EM range. I was delighted when the client requested Martin Audio Blackline, because it's probably what I would have suggested anyway." Rolec provides music content for the bar with amplification again by QSC, using BSS Soundweb processing.
