Today we are highlighting a small, but growing church in Brookfield, WI, Eagles Nest Church. They have worked with us just over a year upgrading their audio system, piece by piece. They were struggling with an old Mackie analog sound board that was very unreliable and causing technical problems during their services. We recommended moving them toward a digital sound board due to the amount of use the main sanctuary gets. We demoed a Yamaha 01V96 digital board in their sanctuary and they were blown away by the increase in sound quality by just replacing the board with their existing sound system and immediately began fundraising to buy the newly released version, the Yamaha 01V96i 32 channel digital sound board. We installed their new Yamaha 01V96i just two months later.
Along with the sound board, other weak links their audio system were their wireless microphone systems. We replaced two wireless systems with one brand new Sennheiser EW100G3 body pack with lapel mic system (EW122G3) and one Sennheiser EW100G3 E865 handheld system (EW165G3). These were purchased and installed at the same time as their sound board. Additionally, another old wireless system will be replaced this month (March 2013) with a brand new Sennheiser EW100G3 body pack instrument system with Countryman E6 system for the pastor.
Eagles Nest Church also took advantage of our Trade Up! program in December where we offered an equal trade in of Shure SM58 wired microphones for Sennheiser E835 microphones. They now have 6 Sennheiser E835 microphones on stage with the clarity noticeably increased for their vocals. Slowly but surely, we're helping this church increase the quality of their services through the upgrading of their audio system.
