Mid-America Sound purchases Ayrton lighting fixtures and grandMA3 consoles

Mid-America Sound Corporation, one of the largest full-service concert and event production companies in the US, has invested in Ayrton GHIBLI, Khamsin and NandoBeam S6 fixtures for the company’s inventory and for client installations and added grandMA3 units to its console roster. Ayrton and MA Lighting products are both distributed exclusively in North America by ACT Lighting, Inc. Greenfield, Indiana-based Mid-America Sound has more than 40 years of experience in sound, lighting, rigging, roofs, staging and backline. “ACT Lighting demo’d the new GHIBLI for us,” says Bob Williams, Owner and CEO of Mid-America Sound. “The build quality was really good, and Ayrton had a great reputation with its other fixtures. We purchased our first GHIBLIs in 2018 and went back to ACT for more in October of that year.”

Mid-America Sound’s GHIBLI LED spot luminaires have been used on multiple tours, and larger corporate events. We are really looking forward to seeing them out more in“They’ve been rock solid; we haven’t had one issue with them and we love all their features,” Williams reports. Next, Mid-America Sound purchased Khamsin LED profile luminaires for Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, home of the NBA’s Indiana Pacers. “The Khamsins are up on truss in the four corners of the arena and used for special effects lighting, event highlights and audience ballyhoos and other looks,” says Williams. In January 2020 Mid-America Sound purchased 20 NandoBeam S6 compact LED moving heads for the John R. Emens College-Community Auditorium at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. The venue hosts Broadway shows and other theatrical productions as well as university events and regional events. Mid-America Sound is a longtime user of grandMA consoles and is currently migrating from grandMA2 systems to the latest grandMA3 units. “We were one of the first to order the grandMA3,” says Williams of the company’s full-size console acquired last year. We’ve also just purchased a grandMA3 light.” Williams adds, “With all of our Ayrton and grandMA3 acquisitions ACT Lighting has always been there with great product support.”
