The Announcer is the product that made Sound-Craft what it is today. It was first developed by the founder, Henry Shaw, sometime in the 1950’s. Its peak was reached in the late 1980’s, but it still sells strong today.
The exterior has changed very little over the years. However, the electronics have kept up with the times. Today, it comes with a wired gooseneck microphone, wireless microphone, and Bluetooth all powered by a 150 watt amplifier. Plus it has a XLR jack for a second wired microphone as well as an auxiliary input. To reach audiences beyond it’s own capabilities, it has a line out to connect to an installed sound system as well as an external speaker jack. It’s specifications are shown here, Sound-Craft B0051 Sound System.
The Announcer probably won’t win many beauty contests, but it will win every tough man contest. I hear many long time customers say that it is nearly indestructible.
It is ideal for the rental market, the education market, the municipal market, as well as the civic club circuit.
