The Trantec S5.5

As we head to theatrelands busiest time of the year, we look at what makes a great sound system and how the Trantec product range is ideally suited to the all-important festive season in venues.

For most regional theatres pantomime is the most important season of the year.  It is often the only time non-regular theatre goers visit a venue and most importantly must have the wow factor in order to engage everyone from 5 to 100.  Pantomime is heavily reliant on technical genius be it flying Peter Pan or creating the magic of the arrival of Cinderella’s coach. Music plays a huge part in modern pantomime but it is also one of the technical teams most logistical problems keeping systems in trim for an intensive 4/5 week period with on average 50 to 60 shows with a large principal cast to cater for.

For 30 years Trantec have led the industry in designing and producing high quality, robust wireless microphone systems that are ideal for theatre venues.  Our wide product range and versatile accessories ensure that our systems can meet the demands of the most challenging audio applications. 

The S5.5 is the latest in our S series specification and can be bought as individual units or built into our very popular rack ‘n’ ready systems.  The distinctive design of the rack ‘n’ ready, housed in its own flight case, gives a robust and compact solution to your sound requirements and is available in 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 channel packages allowing you to tailor make your rack to your specific venue.  With the ability to broadcast up to 24 simultaneous channels the S5.5 rack ‘n’ ready system provides diversity in sound operation with the option of both belt pack and handheld transmitters.

So, for venues that have to provide the perfect vocal application for their Princess, Prince, Dame, Comedy Sidekick, Villain, Henchman and Fairy Godmother an S5.5 system can provide you with some sound magic that gives the ideal solution for performances.
