Hal Leonard tells us that this second edition of The Ultimate Church Sound Operator's Handbook is written to specifically address the concerns and needs of the sound person who serves ministries and churches.
A spokesperson told us, "The modern church uses many of the same presentation tools that have become common in television, movies, and concerts, placing a unique set of technical expectations on its eager, willing, and primarily volunteer force. This updated handbook blends the relational and technical aspects of church sound in a straightforward and easy-to-understand manner, providing a leg-up to volunteer and staff church sound operators. The Ultimate Church Sound Operator's Handbook will help church sound operators gain the knowledge they need to faithfully serve their church membership, leaders, and musicians."
