The Orpheum Theater (Los Angeles) was filled with music-loving concertgoers to check out a performance by Don Was and the Was (Not Was) band, featuring Brian Wilson and Kris Kristofferson. What those folks didn't know is that they were also getting the first look at the new EAW MicroWedge Series stage monitors. Rat Sound Systems supplied the SR rig and support, including crew chief Tom Caraisco and monitor engineer Andy Turner.

The MW12 is the first EAW MicroWedge Series product to be released since an agreement was reached between LOUD Technologies Inc. and MicroWedge developer Rat Sound Systems in late 2007. “The old MicroWedge was solid and performed well when compared to other wedges, but these new ones are night-and-day superior,” enthuses MicroWedge inventor Dave Rat, who is working closely with the EAW Engineering Group on the development of the new series. “This is a whole new deal. I knew the wedges were a big step forward, but what I did not expect was such an overwhelming embrace so quickly from our own engineers, and the artists and band engineers.”

“We really, really like the performance of these new wedges,” notes Caraisco. “Once Andy got things going onstage and went through all of the mixes, he was genuinely pleased.”
