From the Humble Beginnings as the Maker of Garage-Made Guitar Amplifiers to Today’s Leading Brand of Professional AV for Live Sound, Cinema and Corporate Installations Worldwide, QSC Moves Forward to the Future

Costa Mesa, CA (January 04, 2018) – 1968 was a year of seismic change across the globe. Fifty years ago, unrest was fueled by civil rights movements in the United States and protests and revolutions in Europe. Technological innovations included the introduction of the 747 jumbo jet and the first humans to orbit the moon, in Apollo 8. In music, as the Beatles sang ‘Hey Jude’ and the Rolling Stones rocked ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, the company known today as QSC was born as Quilter Sound Things in a small industrial building in Costa Mesa, California.  

The original focus for QSC was hand-built guitar amplifiers; the company only later transforming and evolving to become a world-leading brand in power amplifiers. “Our early vision was to take over the world with high-powered, giant guitar amps, but we missed that boat and refocused our efforts on power amps,” said Pat Quilter, QSC Founder. “Since the beginning, QSC has always focused on staying close to our customers, which is the foundation for the company’s success.”

Hide that mic! The Shure Microflex MX153 professional electret condenser earset mic is so small, it's practically invisible.

"Awesome. Super clear, consistent reception, easy to adjust. Best headset mic I've used. Highly recommended."

"We've used these for our worship team, cannot believe how clear and powerful these are! So simple to operate, Lightweight and comfortable! Excellent!"

Microphone placement for broadcast and theater present a unique set of challenges compared to miking a concert or studio recording session – not least because traditional placement for optimal sound quality is rarely possible. More often than not, the microphone is required to essentially disappear, as not to hinder the performer or distract from the overall production.

There are a few fundamentals to consider before securing a mic to a performer, because body-worn microphone placement is always a compromise. But our job is to ensure the mic always delivers the same response throughout a performance and on different nights of a production. In this article, I will cover the process I follow to mic performers for vocal reinforcement or recording.

Here are some of the initial questions I ask when setting up a show:

Big Deal Entertainment provided five sound systems for local celebrity announcers along the route of the 2017 Gilbert Days Parade. This year’s Grand Marshal was none other than America's Got Talent Season 12 Contestant Evie Clair! This was our second year working at the parade for the town of Gilbert, Arizona.

How do you speak into a microphone when you're given the opportunity to stand up and speak, and perhaps pitch a new business? Well, the one thing you shouldn't do is what I'm doing right now. If you're holding a microphone, you can't be gesturing with that hand. Because every time you do this you're taking it out of the range, and you just frustrate people. The sound goes in and out. That's a horrible thing to do.

Any time you're given a microphone, realize every microphone's a little bit different. You should always ask the person who gave it to you, whether it's a technician at a speaking event, or a conference, or if you're in a talk radio show, ask the producer. Ask them what is the best distance for you when you're speaking to the microphone. For a lot of microphones, it's about like this, the distance between your fingers when placed like that. But every microphone is a little bit different.

Now, there are certain microphones where they're more sensitive than others. When you say the letter P, it causes an explosion of air, and you get that popping sound. Pop, pop, pop, Peter Piper picked. The letter P, the consonant sound P, can be difficult for microphones. If you are up close or you're doing any sort of audio recording, be especially careful when you're saying the letter P.

Also, realize if somebody gives you a microphone, it's not for you. It's for the audience. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a speaker get up in front of 400 people, handed a microphone, and the speaker very arrogantly says, 'oh that's OK. I don't need a microphone.'

Well, we know you don't need a microphone. It's for the audience for them to hear you. That way, people all the way in the back can see it. Sometimes perhaps you might be captured on video and audio for a webcast for people to see it later.

So, always take the microphone when you have a chance, and try to speak in a conversational tone. You do that, and you'll be in good shape.

There’s no doubt the church is undergoing a massive cultural shift as people attend church less often, and even regular attenders show up less frequently than before.

As much as everything is changing and we need to respond to that, almost every church still holds weekend services and likely will for years to come. So, in the meantime, what can you do to help reach more people? What can you do to boost weekend church attendance? Before you think this is just a numbers game, realize it’s also a spiritual issue. To me, declining attendance is a spiritual issue because I believe that disconnected people rarely grow spiritually.

Connect people and they grow. Disconnect people, and they don’t. So, naturally, I’m motivated to connect people. Can we connect people outside Sunday? Absolutely. By all means connect people through groups, other gatherings, in local mission and so much more. And yet this truth remains: the weekend service is, functionally, a primary way most people connect with the church and connect with God. So to ignore Sundays is to ignore a reality that impacts hundreds of millions of people every week.

10 Changes You Can Make to Boost Weekend Attendance

So if you’re holding weekend services, what can you do to bump weekend attendance positively, knowing that it will help people connect better to God? 

Here are 10 ideas that are relatively simple to implement:
