Yet another Malay wedding with the Yamaha Stagepas 500
This was yet another Malay wedding with my Yamaha Stagepas providing sound reinforcement. This was the setup. They gave me a table, covered with a very thin piece of plastic. It was the same kind of plastic those plastic bags from the grocers are made of. I had to be very careful with it as it was so thin, it tended to tear if anything scratched it. That included the rubberised feet of the Stagepas mixer too! So I hooked it up, together with my Line 6 wireless microphone. You can also see my trusty Nokia 101 phone there too, providing test music while I did basic equalisation of the sound. The speakers had been setup and I had to throw speaker wire over the sewage pipes that are prevalent at the ceiling of most void decks in Singapore. This is so that I would not have to waste my cloth tape taping it to the floor. The only issue I faced was that the power supply was some distance away, near the wedding dias. So I had to use two of my power extension cords to reach it
Was the wedding a success? I will have to say it was. I had great food to eat, nice company to work with and an all in all great experience, as always, with Malay weddings. The bride’s parents were really nice and very accommodating. That is why I love doing Malay weddings. I always have a great time!
