Bournemouth, UK, (April 2016) — Absolute Music, one of the UK’s premiere retailers of musical instrument equipment, features a massive recording and rehearsal complex as part of their 34,000 square foot headquarters, with 10 dedicated rehearsal rooms, 5 practice rooms, a recording studio and a café. As the mission for Absolute Music’s Studios is to provide their customers with conveniently located recording and rehearsal facilities along with the best equipment available, they chose QSC K Series loudspeakers for each of their rooms.
Absolute Music’s Rehearsal Studios were created after the company saw that the area was not offering their customers adequate rehearsal spaces with a full complement of gear. In selecting the equipment, Absolute Music’s goal was to furnish the rooms with the best high end gear, and chose premiere brands such as AKG and Sennheiser microphones, amps from Orange, Blackstar and Vox, drum kits including Pearl and Gretsch as well as a pair of QSC K 10 loudspeakers for each.
“The sound quality of the K10’s is amazing and they are the ideal loudspeakers for the rehearsal rooms that we have,” says Absolute Music Sales Director Andy Legg. “In designing the rehearsal complex, we made a commitment to provide our customers with the very best equipment. The QSC loudspeakers are a cut above the PAs that our clients usually work with, but we want them to get used to having the best.”
The rehearsal rooms pay homage to famous musicians, including the Hendrix room and Cobain room, and are open from 10 am to 10pm every day, so that as many as 10 bands can rehearse at any given time. Absolute Music’s Studios also offer one-on-one tuition for a variety of instruments and band tuition, so that kids can learn the benefits of playing music together. The recording studio is purposely designed as a project studio, featuring Pro Tools and Universal Audio, to suit the workstyle of their customers. Absolute Music also has plans in the pipeline for a larger, professional recording facility in the future.
