Located in Pénjamo Guanajuato, Mexico, Producciones Lemus, an event production and rental company for major festivals and musical productions throughout the country, now includes a large number of Martin Audio MLA, MLA Compact and related products as part of their inventory.
In addition to Martin Audio, Producciones Lemus also represents leading brands such as Clay Paky, Martin Professional Lighting, Shure, Sennheiser, Yamaha, Digico and Avid.
According to CEO Paulo C. Lemus, the company “started out 28 years ago supporting regional bands specializing in Mexican ‘Sonidero’ style music. We now provide large sound systems for massive musical events and leading South American artists throughout the country and we’re opening a new office in Mexico City.
“We started with other speaker brands, but I fell in love with Martin Audio W8L and W8L Longbow systems years ago and was eager to acquire MLA and MLA Compact to meet the demands of today’s productions. We now have a total of 92 MLA, 42 MLA Compact, 40 MLX subs, DD12 and XE Series stage monitors along with iKON amps. I love the sound of Martin Audio and am already thinking of increasing our stock to fulfill bigger production requests.
“In terms of events for which we supply equipment, they range from massive festivals such as the Carnaval de Mazatlán to supporting leading artists from Mexico and other countries such as Tigres del Norte, Marco Antonio Solis, Julión Alvarez, Caifanes, Reik, Miguel Bosé, Ricardo Montaner, Gloria Trevi, Alejandra Guzmán and too many more to name here. Once they listen to the MLA sound systems, they always approve them on their riders.”
Paulo recently traveled to Martin Audio headquarters in High Wycombe for the Open Days event and says “the experience was amazing because of the opportunity to listen to their excellent new products like WPC and WPM line arrays at the same time. That, plus the support that the Martin Audio team provides makes us feel like part of the family.”
Summarizing, Paulo concludes: “With their incredible technology and company mission to provide the finest sounding, highest quality loudspeakers, I’m happy to endorse Martin Audio as the best value brand.
“We’ve made some significant internal company changes and are improving the training for our crew to offer a totally practical and useful business format for all of the front of house engineers, productions and artists we work with.
“Finally, I’d like to thank our distributor in Mexico, Audio Acustica, for all the support they have given us along with Berenice Gutierrez at Martin Audio LATAM and the entire staff at the home office in the UK. With MLA and the new products to come, we look forward to incredible growth and success in the future.”
