Who is Timmy Abell?

Technical Information

Stage Setup

In smaller theaters and schools, Timmy's program is technically self-sufficient, requiring only these items:

One six foot table
A wooden piano bench
(or student's desk)
One electrical outlet

Here is a complete description of Timmy's setup:

Stage set-up:

     Timmy will require a six-foot table and a wooden piano bench (or student's desk). Timmy stands at center stage, forward, facing audience. The table, with small instruments and PA head, is immediately behind him (he will provide tablecloth). To his left are guitar & banjo on stands, and the piano bench. To his right is the hammered dulcimer on its stand. Wherever possible, green plants on stage would be very nice.

Dimensions: Width of set is @ 15' - 20', depth is @ 10'.

Lighting: General wash, warm gels, focused on center stage, forward.


     Timmy generally travels with a high quality, wireless PA System which can stand alone or patch directly into one channel of the House system via one balanced XLR line from his mixer. The mixer has a male XLR output for this. His system consists of a 7 space rack box containing all of the following components:

  • 1 Samson SR-22 receiver for Shure SM-85 Vocal Mic
  • 1 Samson SR-22 receiver for EV 757 Instrument Mic
  • 1 Samson SR-22 receiver for Guitar CT-2 transmitter
  • 1 Samson SR-22 receiver for Banjo CT-2 transmitter
    (Each receiver goes to its channel through an impedance changer)
  • Yamaha M406 Professional 6 Channel Mixer
  • Rane ME 15 Dual 2/3 Oct Graphic Equalizer (The house will bypass this)
    (One half of the stereo Rane EQ handles the full mix) (One half handles the Guitar EQ)
  • Carver PM 2.0T Amplifier (House will bypass) to 2 Bose 802 Speakers
  • 1 Alesis Microverb (patched into mixer)
  • Two of the six channels handle "C-Ducer" transducers from the hammered dulcimer. (Not wireless)
Stage Setup

     For smaller theaters (up to 500), Timmy's system can stand alone, and he can manage it from the stage.

     For larger concert halls or for outdoor settings, Timmy can send the mix to the House for volume and general EQ control.

     In the event that the Sponsor will supply all sound reinforcement, Timmy will require 3 microphones on booms.
