In Audio, Audio Industry News, Audio Install News, home_page, Install News, Web Articlesby Media

12Stone Church (“12Stone”) is a multi-site church with eight locations spread across the counties of Gwinnett, Hall, and Barrow, GA. 12Stone was founded by Senior Pastor Kevin Myers and has been serving the community for the past 33 years. In addition to their onsite ministry, 12Stone reaches over 20,000 people through their digital ministry. The church has been using a variety of Royer microphones for over 10 years—first for studio and live event production miking and, most recently, for streaming services production to better reach their congregation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Russell Allen, Worship Development Pastor/Music Director and Audio Director Dennis Frazier oversee the various aspects of the church’s audio production. They’ve acquired an impressive arsenal of Royer microphones, including R-121s, R-10s, R-122s, and an SF-24 Stereo Ribbon microphone. According to Allen, “We’ve had these mics for a good 10 years or so, but we really zoned into the R-121s and R-10s on the guitar cabs as recently as 4 years ago. Services are very contemporary in nature. We have 8 campuses with a full 8-10 person live band/vocal team. There are typically 3-5 front line vocalists and a 5-person backline (drums, bass, keys, and two guitars). We typically program a 3 song set list (same songs at each campus) per weekend.”
