Rent-All Offers Yamaha Silver Service

Yamaha's Ruben van der Goor trains Rent-All audio engineers on the CL series

25 years after he started running a mobile disco with his brother, Theo van Workum now owns Rent-All, one of Europe’s major technical production companies. Committed to investing in the most modern equipment, the company recently purchased six Yamaha CL series digital consoles.

With four offices across the Netherlands and Germany, Rent-All is an integral part of many theatrical productions and live production tours for Dutch artists, including Sensation, Frans Bauer, Toppers, Andre Rieu and Waylon.

“We always want to have the most modern technology available in stock and, because we work on many different types and sizes of production, when the CL series was launched we took the decision to invest in all three sizes of console,” says Theo.

Rent-All purchased three CL3s, two CL1s and a CL5, along with three Rio3224-D and six Rio1608-D i/o units. With the consoles safely delivered, Theo asked Yamaha’s Ruben van der Goor and Jan Prins to visit both Rent-All offices in the Netherlands to deliver advanced training sessions.

The training sessions covered a wide range of subjects, which came under two main headings. Console-specific subjects included the user interface, effects, multi-tracking with Nuendo Live and DVS, special features, software tools and compatibility. Complementing these were more theoretical subjects included working with Dante, redundancy, latency, switch demands & settings, system design rules, signal flows, network topology and word clock.

“It made sense to help engineers to get the best use from the CL series consoles, so asking Ruben and Jan to come and help train them was a common-sense solution,” says Theo.

Complementing Rent-All is Theo’s new company, Sales-All, a rapidly-expanding equipment sales company. Sales-All stocks a wide range of Yamaha Commercial Audio products, alongside those of other sound and lighting manufacturers, and is quickly establishing itself as a ‘go-to’ source for the Dutch production and installation market.
