They constantly win prizes worldwide for their extraordinary performance and reliability.
Claypaky technologies are used around the world in a variety of show lighting areas: at major events, on tours with the most famous international artists, for television and theatre productions, and in the installation and architainment sectors.
“We are honoured we have been chosen to distribute the Claypaky brand in Italy,” said Stefano Rocchi, Managing Director of Audiosales. “Knowing we are playing the lead in this epoch-making turning point for the Bergamo-based company spurs us to face the challenge, which will affect our company at all levels, with enthusiasm.
