Sound Equipment

Reinforce or capture with critical accuracy

BB Sound - My Principal sound production partner

BBSound is my primary sound equipment source for live, location and studio recording applications.

Bob Bickerton has thirty years concert production experience and has been providing professional live sound services to the Nelson region for over ten years.

I started working with Bob when I moved to Nelson in 2010 and I instantly connected with his engineering approach which focusses on high fidelity reproduction of acoustic instruments.

Bob and I continue to work closely on projects and I am pleased to have unrestricted access to his sound equipment inventory. This allows me to deliver exceptional sound to my clients, and their audiences.

Fohhn Audio speaker systems

Investing in Fohhn sound system, BBSound has opted for intelligent products of the highest quality that deliver maximum performance and the best possible sound results.

Whether used for full-on live music or for demanding speech applications, BBsound's range of 3 Linea LX Fohhn sound system's guarantee superb sound in an elegant design that doesn't visually impose or interfere with sightlines.

Compared with conventional systems, the column line-source speakers distribute sound much more evenly throughout the room, with a pleasing effect at the front and clear, coherent sound right at the back.

Feedback is rarely an issue, even with complex microphone setups - which allows us to employ more open and natural microphones with confidence.

Digital mixing consoles

BBSound's range of digital mixing consoles offers incredible processing power without towers of rack equipment. A range of models can service performances from small ensembles to large live concerts or musical theatre seasons that require up to 48 inputs with multiple scene recall.

In addition to their technical engineering capabilities, features like remote operation from an iPad have become integral to my workflow, particularly for working with onstage monitors. If the mix in your monitor isn't working for you, don't bother trying to explain what your hearing. I'll join you onstage and we can fix it together then and there. No more interpretive guessing games!

Esoteric microphone collection

BBSound's collection includes some of the finest live stage, studio, and location recording microphones that are chosen for their transparency, openness, and accuracy of reproduction with use on acoustic sources.

The impressive inventory comprises over 120 microphones including models from leading brands including Neumann, DPA, Beyerdynamic, AKG, Sennheiser, Electrovoice, Line6, Rode, Crowley and Tripp, Audix, Audio-Technica, and Shure.

Our philosophy hinges on matching the right microphone to the right source, setting, and application -  whether for a live concert; or location or studio recording.

Is a single model of stage microphone perfectly suited to the infinite range of vocal tones?

We don't think so - which is why BBSound has over a dozen different microphones available for the task, each suited for different tonal characteristic or stage applications.
