KV2 get Mashed Up
Set in a former Edwardian butchers, the Union Mash Up is a unique creative venue and eatery owned by former Beautiful South drummer David Stead. The venue hosts regular weekly and monthly events ranging from original artworks to spoken word, pop-up shops to comedy, cinema to DJ beats and acoustic music by some of East Yorkshires finest.
Having persevered with an ageing sound system for a significant length of time the decision was taken to invest in a high quality and versatile sound system to improve the experience of clientele and performers alike.
David made contact with local sound specialists HPSS to assess what his options would be and was advised to consider KV2 Audio products by Director Hugh Jones. Subsequent discussions took place to fully assess the UMU’s requirements and budget and these lead to a demonstration of a selection of KV2 Audio’s ESD Series arranged by Technical Manager Iain Firth.
Being a boutique venue with an artistic décor to consider, a large sound system was not required and a demonstration of a pair of smaller KV2 mid/hi’s and a single subwoofer was demo’d versus a pair of ESD 12’s running full range took place. It was decided that, whilst the sub and mid/hi system offered excellent performance and frequency response, the UMU would not require the extra bass extension and that the ESD 12 option was preferable.
A pair of ESD 12’s were loaned for the August Bank Holiday weekend that offered up a suitably versatile array of events – a DJ evening, acoustic evening and full live band evening – to fully trial the system in a real environment. Such was the performance of the ESD 12’s that the band who intended to bring in their rig went through the system and were blown away with the performance, as were the punters and David himself.
The trial was conclusive – the ESD 12’s offered the perfect solution for the Union Mash Up.
An order followed and the ESD 12’s have been flown from the ceiling with the option to drop them down and move around the venue depending on the requirement.
Iain commented “Based on previous experience of the ESD series, when David approached us for suggestions of a suitable system we had no hesitation in recommending boxes from the ESD series. The excellent LF extension and smooth top end creates a package perfectly suited to the range of music & DJ’s hosted at the bar with plenty of headroom when needed“ and David said of the trial “…”
