When Cosmo Music, the largest single-location retailer of musical instruments in Canada, built its destination location in the Richmond Hill section of Ontario nearly a decade ago, it expanded its budding rental department. Today, Cosmo Professional Services provides full-scale audio, video, lighting, staging and backline services to a client base that includes individuals, musicians, producers and more. QSC K and KW Series Loudspeakers are the retailer’s go-to solution for performance and reliability.
“Our rental department offers everything from a pair of speakers over the counter to accommodate someone having a backyard barbecue to full-scale concert production for 10,000 people,” Ryan McLeod, Manager of Professional Services at Cosmo Professional, said. “And the QSC K and KW loudspeakers have been our savior for their performance and reliability.”
According to McLeod, when Cosmo Music first opened the rental department at the new location, it tried other powered loudspeakers from two or three companies, but ended up having issues. Then, with the help of its partner and supplier, SF Marketing, Cosmo Professional Services found QSC powered loudspeakers.
“When we decided to give the QSC loudspeakers a try, it really changed things for us,” McLeod said. “They have performed better than we ever could have imagined, and it would be hard to beat what the K and KWs have done for us. The loudspeakers just won’t break, and they never need service. I can’t buy more, because the ones I have don’t quit!”
