Carlos Santana's world tour 2003 is turning into a global triumph for the Grammy award winner. The German part of the tour is no exception, selling out major venues like Munich's Olympiahalle several times over.
Sound is done by British company Major Tom Limited / Sound Image, who choose Electro-Voice X-Line and XLC. Major Tom's Chris Marsh explains why: "We were all agreed that the EV X-Line has the most brilliant sound of any comparable system. It offers impressive clarity at the top and remarkable warmth at the bottom." As sidehangs, FOH engineer Rob Mailman and his team are using the new, compact Electro-Voice XLC system with eight cabinets on either side. There seems to be no sound reinforcement challenge that the combination of X-Line and XLC can't cope with. With Santana the system is being driven with Electro-Voice P-3000 amps.
With Santana following the highly-acclaimed tour of former Beach Boy Brian Wilson in 2003, Major Tom Limited / Sound Image, too, are putting together an impressive string of success.
