We use only professional musical and lighting equipment and this varies from venue to venue which could include a full P.A. sound system based around the incredible Alto Black 12” speakers and Alto mixing desk which we have found works well at any volume between 200w and 4800w. Smaller rooms usually only need one speaker and we also carry sub woofers for bigger venues but hardly ever need them, even outdoors. A recent addition is a Maui 5 Speaker Array which we have found useful for small to medium size rooms. Feedback is automatically prevented using a Behringer Shark FBQ100. We also use a Samson S-Com Plus Stereo Compressor Limiter and Cymatic Audio LR-16 for live recordings.
Cosmic Sparkle uses a Line 6 wireless microphone. We also carry a couple of Shure PG 58s, a Peavey 1100 and an Alto Radius 200 wireless headset to use as backups but she prefers the tonal quality of the Line 6. Cosmic Sparkle also has a Shure wireless & sound-cancelling in-ear monitor system but prefers not to use it unless the room is very noisy as it makes it more difficult to hear & interact with her audience.
Lighting (mostly used only in darker months) can vary from simple glowing pin-lights and/or LED mushroom effect to a full-on 300 metre 3D RGB Laser and everything in between, including performer stage lighting and a 3m x 2m fully reactive LED stage backcloth.
