Equipment - the Impressions Party Band


If you are a sound engineer or musician you may be interested in the equipment we use:

PA System

2,400 Watt Yamaha DXS / DXR Active PA comprising:

2 x 15” DXS subs
2 x 12” DXR tops
Assorted DXR 12” and 10” tops used as monitors - these match the tops and double as spares for front-of-house should either of the tops malfunction

We normally use a Soundcraft Signature Series desk

As can be seen, the tops are pole mounted from the subs - far safer than having larger tops on a tripod stand which are easily tripped over by merry guests!

Active v Passive
These Active speakers have a class D power amp built-in to each unit and are mains powered. The great advantage of active systems is that each component part is self contained. With a passive system, if the amplifier blows nothing works. With Active, one amplifier failure still leaves you with everything else.

For most functions we have a pair of ADJ Dotz Floods and supplement this with 4 individual spots. All lighting is hi power LED and use very little electricity.

We also have basic DJ lighting for the dance floor which is being renewed for 2017 - details not yet available

Len typically uses 2 keyboards:

- Korg Krome 73
- Roland FA-06

These are on a Spider Pro centre console stand with built in mic stand and iPad controller - very neat and great in smaller spaces

He also has a Yamaha MO8 and now vintage Roland XP-80.


Chris typically uses a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson Les Paul with either a Marshall anniversary or Blackstar amplification


Moll typically uses a 5 string bass guitar with Mark One amplification
