Ampco Flashlight Rental Invests in QU and ME


Dutch PA company, Ampco - Flashlight, has updated its rental stock by adding 24 ME-1 Personal monitor mixers and 2 ME-U hubs with a MADI option card, as well as 4 Qu-16 rackmount digital mixers, all from Allen & Heath.

ME was selected following an evaluation process comparing it with several different monitor systems. For its debut event, Ampco- Flashlight put ME to use at the TOP 2000 Live Production event in Rotterdam. 20 ME-1 personal monitor mixers were fed with a 40 channel MADI stream to the ME-U distribution unit.


“After only two minutes of playing, all the musicians were making their own mixes!” comments Ampco - Flashlight’s Jos van der Hoeven. “The ME system is now a firm rental favourite in Ampco –Flashlight’s stock.”

The Qu-16’s were selected for their small footprint to manage smaller events and to accompany the ME systems.


“The great thing about the Qu-16 is that you get all the power of a pro digital mixer, fitted into a rack, for a fraction of the price,” concludes Ampco - Flashlight’s Henri Koning.
