CCPWA expand with MA and Martin

Posted on Friday, February 4th, 2011


Perth’s Concert & Corporate Productions recently took delivery of the latest additions to their already substantial inventory.

A grandMA2 full-size console is the new flagship console at CCP and has already made a big impact on the LDs who have been fortunate enough to use it. CCP are the first Australian production company to offer a full-size MA2 console for hire.

CCP also took delivery of twelve Martin MAC2000 wash fixtures, eight MAC301’s and eighteen Atomic strobes with Atomic Colours.

“We had been in need of the 2K washes for ages as there is a high demand for a large washlight in the Perth market,” commented Sean McKernan, CCPWA’s General Manager. “We can now offer our clients both Mac 2K wash and spots for the first time locally in Perth.

“The MAC301 has become a workhorse for us and finds a place on most of our productions, the eight new units takes us up to sixteen units which still isn’t enough! We seem to be constantly sub-hiring 301’s to make up touring riders as they have become very popular. The Atomics and scrollers are invaluable and nearly every rider we get requests them so they have been very busy since they arrived.”

The new additions made their debut on the on the annual Southbound Festival with the MA2 running the main stage and the 2K washes and Atomic colours beefing up the rigs on the main stage and the Bigtop.

All LD’s that got to use the MA2 commented on how easy it was to use and program. The Living End’s longtime LD Anthony Petruzio even commented “I love the power of the new effects engine that allows me to custom build effects and get exactly what I want from an effect, not just try and fumble around with inbuilt effects with varying results. That is one of the main reasons I’m considering swapping to MA2 for all my shows after more than twelve years on Hog-based consoles.”

CCPWA’s MA2 and MAC’s have a full season ahead of them as summer really kicks into gear in Perth.
