  • Vintage King Ushers Second Canaan Missionary Baptist Church Into A New Era Of Live Sound

    LiveSoundVintageKing

    When it comes to spreading the word of the ministry, there is a deep importance in understanding and connecting with the speaker and musicians during a sermon or performance. Just ask Rondall Murray of the Second Canaan Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. "In order to have a great worship service, the quality of the sound must be top-notch," Murray says. "It can make or break your service if the people of God have to strain to be able to hear what the pastor is preaching about or what the choir is singing."

    To bring Second Canaan Baptist Church into the "future of sound equipment," Murray and Pastor Frank J. Harris Jr. reached out to Paul Johnson at Vintage King. Johnson, who has handled many installations in houses of worship of all different sizes, began working with Murray by assessing the issues that they were having with their current system and the space the facility had to offer.

  • Trace Horse Studio Enters Nashville With Neve Consoles In Tow

    TraceHorseStudios

    For Tim and Preston Cochran, the owners of the brand new Trace Horse Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, music is something that has been passed down in their family from generation to generation. "My grandfather was a guitarist and a bluegrass promoter in rural Virginia. He also gave me a Harmony electric guitar for Christmas when I was 10 years old," says Tim Cochran. "As far as passing my passion for music onto Preston, it was never really a conscious thing, unless you count putting the White Album and God Save the Queen on continuous play while he was still in his crib."

    Spurred by Preston's interest in writing and recording as a teenager, Tim's love for gear was reawakened and the two began to assemble all the gear needed for a traditional studio space. With the opening of Trace Horse, Preston, who is recent Belmont graduate, has already been lining up clients to work on the studio's beautiful Neve 8014 and BCM10. We recently chatted with Tim about Trace Horse finding its place in the world of Nashville studios, creating an aesthetic and owning one of only five Class A Neve consoles in Music City.
