Wenger / JR Clancy

Wenger / J.R. Clancy, the rigging juggernaut who announced their merger in 2016, continues to promote their broad product line and depth of expertise. For LDI 2017 they were on stand, in force, to promote their new offerings, upcoming for 2018

Virtuoso Acoustical Shell (with or without Transcend Active Acoustics)

Virtuoso is an acoustic shell that creates a virtual experience with an active system of microphones, speakers and digital signal processors instead of relying on the mass of a composite wooden structure. Essentially this system acts as a feedback monitor for all the musicians onstage, providing a uniform acoustical experience which

Virtuoso can either stand alone to improve the sound on stage or be paired with Transcend Active Acoustic System to create a full-venue solution for optimal acoustics, from the stage all the way through back of the house.  Transcend’s active acoustics algorithm results in a system requiring fewer microphones and speakers to provide a more reliable and stable system. This allows for streamlined, lower-cost installations than other systems on the market, and the best possible acoustic experience for any seat in the house

For facilities with limited storage, a ceiling/rigging system without structural capacity for a heavy wooden structure, or a lack of resources to set up and remove a shell on stage, Virtuoso provides a unique previously unattainable solution

The Maestro Acoustical Shell delivers impressive full-stage acoustics while creating live entertainment environments for performances at an affordable price. Maestro is packed with features, conveniences and performance aesthetics.

Maestro has been redesigned with construction and design improvements, providing a cost-effective solution for any performance space requiring an acoustical enhancement. It features mobile towers and rows of ceiling panels that form a full stage acoustic enclosure when placed together on stage. A separate wheeled mover easily lifts and moves the towers.

It can be easily configured to accommodate groups of varying sizes. Maestro’s counterweighted wall towers ensure stability and safety. And the design saves space since the individual towers nest together when not in use.

The Maestro line comes in a variety of configurations, offering an economical solution in comparison to Wenger’s top of the line,  highly customizable Diva Full-Stage Acoustical Shell.
