Organised by local record label Big Stinky Dog, the charity event raises money for St. Luke’s Hospice and brings together bands from around the Essex area to perform throughout the day at Chelmsford’s Ship Inn.
As with any musical event, a major challenge for organisers is to keep the event on track whilst contending with high-volume sound. With dozens of musicians milling around, tight schedules to keep, equipment to set up and a paying audience to impress, good communication was vital to keep Thingamagig running smoothly. Organisers, sound engineers and security staff all needed to keep in constant contact, without being drowned out by the artists on stage.
It’s All In The Ear
Having talked with the Big Stinky Dog people about their needs for the day, we supplied them with Lugra Evolve E55 digital and portable two way radios with D shape earpieces. The Evolve E55 is a versatile and portable two way radio which can switch between digital and analogue channels.
Their light weight makes them perfect for events when users are going to be on the move all day, while their long battery life (13.5 hours) means they can be relied on all day without worrying about a recharge.
Earpieces are a highly useful accessory at fast-paced, noisy events like a gig or music festival. The discrete, easy-to-wear design of the D-shape piece means they do not get in the way while the user is working whilst they can be trusted not to fall off. But most importantly, they mean people can hear each other when they need to no matter how loud it is in the environment, so crucial communications are never missed.
