SSL's Hybrid Console Comes To Los Angeles
Created to streamline the workflow of hybrid engineers, the Solid State Logic Matrix2 has made its way to our Los Angeles store and is ready for demoing. Bypassing on-board mic pres and EQs, this console makes using outboard gear incredibly easy by creating a more direct signal path. The console's faders also allow for innovative control over your DAW and X-Rack Integration offers users total recall. Find out what this 40-input, 16-channel console is all about by scheduling a session today.
Powerful And Detailed Monitors From Augspurger
Utilizing the design work of George Augspurger, Professional Audio Devices have continued his legacy by building immaculate sounding monitors with custom drivers and integrated DSP driven amplification. Our store is now home to a set of Duo-8 Mini-Mains, which are 2-way monitors with optional 3-way amp to power the subwoofer. What can you expect? These monitors have crystal clear detail and an amazing mid-range that need to be heard to be believed.
Vintage King Los Angeles And Nashville Recognized By NAMM
We were extremely honored to be named to the list of NAMM's Top 100 Dealers for 2015 when the organization held their annual 2015 Summer NAMM exhibition in Nashville. However, the big surprise was when we brought home NAMM's award for "Best Store Design," along with our fellow Vintage King family in Nashville. Thank you to NAMM for this wonderful distinction and to all of our customers who make every single day in our store an incredible experience.
Three New Faces At Vintage King Los Angeles
Over the last few months, we've been seeking new sales staff to add to our Los Angeles store and we've finally made some worthy additions to the team. We're happy to introduce our two new salesmen, Matt Knobel and Dylan Wood, along with our new Sales Support team member, Thomas O'Connor.
As a long-time industry veteran, Matt Knobel has been in the studio world for years, working as a freelance engineer, keyboard tech and even as manager at Lenny Kravitz-owned The Studio at The Setai. California native Dylan Wood grew up interested in music (both of his parents were signed artists), and eventually found his way into the recording studio. Bringing knowledge he's gained by working at The Compound Studio in Signal Hill, Dylan is ready to offer his expertise to Vintage King customers. Thomas O’Connor brings years of experience in the pro audio retail realm and will be working with Chris Bolitho on post-production and EDU sales.
Every month, we ask our talented sales staff to give us a list of the gear that they just can't get enough in their own studio spaces. Check out the latest round of Staff Picks featuring Jason Cropper, Alex Oana and one of our latest additions to the store, Matt Knobel.
In addition to selecting their most essential gear, we've also asked our sales crew to shout out some of their favorite LA hot spots. Next time you're visiting our store, wet your whistle, grab a bite or pick up some vinyl at one of these local businesses selected by Robert Alexander, Chris Karn and Matt Knobel.
