Audio Brands named Earthworks Installed Sound distributor
AUSTRALIA: US microphone manufacturer Earthworks has named Audio Brands as distributor of its Installed Sound microphone line for Australia and New Zealand.
‘Earthworks enjoys a reputation as being a leader in microphone technology and we’re very pleased to introduce their new installation line,’ commented Audio Brands director, Don McConnell.
‘We are thrilled about the appointment of Audio Brands Australia,’ added Heidi Blackmer Robichaud, president and CEO of Earthworks. ‘Their experience within the installation market will make them excellent partners in promoting Earthworks’ technically advanced and problem solving Installed Sound products.’
The installation range includes choir mics, gooseneck mics, as well as mics designed to be mounted into conference tables or ceilings. Audio Brands joins Audio Chocolate in Australia, who is the distributor of the manufacturer’s pro audio products.
‘Many installation mics offer decent on-axis frequency response, but behave quite differently as little as half way into their published pickup angle, particularly in the higher octave bands,’ furthered Jeff Shoesmith, Audio Brands sales engineer. ‘Earthworks microphones are true to their specification and offer a much wider usable pickup angle without spotlighting. This uniform polar behaviour also provides much greater gain before feedback. If you’re a designer who appreciates the importance of quality sound, we encourage you to compare Earthworks installed sound microphones with your current favourites, you will experience performance you never thought possible in an installed mic form factor.’
