The Little Nashville Opry (Nashville, Ind.) has installed a 56-channel Soundcraft SM20 console to run its monitor system. The new desk replaces a 48-channel board from a different manufacturer.

"With so many acts currently using in-ear monitor systems, we needed a board with quiet and dependable monitor sends," said Little Nashville Opry monitor engineer Gary Weidner. "We had also outgrown our 48-channel frame size. Since a stereo ear mix uses twice as many mixes as a mono wedge mix, workable mixes quickly became in short supply. With the SM20, we can now stage up to 15 powered mixes, plus cue wedge and five more in-ear monitor mixes."

The venue operates a 39-week performance schedule from March through November, and has staged more than 3,000 shows ranging from its house band, Little Nashville Express, to country music legends like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Wayne Newton.

Little Nashville Opry production manager Larry Bemis' company, Sound Advice Consulting, sold the Little Nashville Opry the board.
