San Diego, Calif.-based Power Plus Sound & Lighting Inc. (PPSL) returns to the production services business after a five-year hiatus.

Reopening its doors at the start of this year, PPSL already boasts a serious inventory of pro audio products, including five large-format Soundcraft consoles: two pairs of Series FIVE house and monitor desks, and a new dual-mode MH4.

Power Plus president and owner Lane Rickard said that his decision to make a substantial investment in Soundcraft was an easy one. "I've been buying Soundcraft consoles since the late '80s and have a tremendous confidence in the product, particularly the Series FIVEs. Since January, I've employed the front-of-house and monitor desks on national acts, symphonies, large corporate clients and major league sporting events, all with a flawless track record."

PPSL recently put a FIVE monitor in front of Jim Staniforth, Paul Anka's monitor engineer. "It was his first time on the desk," Rickard said, "and although we had a whole rack of outboard EQs for him, he never touched them. He only used the parametrics on the board and could hardly believe the control he had!"

Shown: Lane Rickard with one of his new Series FIVEs on the San Diego stop of the Rockin' Roadhouse Tour, featuring Mark Chesnutt, Joe Diffie and Tracy Lawrence.
