Cornwall, UK (May 7, 2007)--Sunderland-based High Fidelity Studios has just completed the building of a fully-equipped pre-touring rehearsal suite, installing Allen & Heath's new dedicated monitor console, the GL2800M, to complement the studio's existing GL2400 FOH desk.

"The suite offers bands the experience of a full blown gig, providing quality equipment they would find at a top line event. The space is set up like a venue with a fully furnished stage including drum rises, a valve back line, and top quality 32 channel monitor and FOH desks."
"We are very familiar with A&H mixers as we have GL2200's and GL2400's in our hire stock, and we come across them in most of the venues we engineer," continued director of engineering, Marc Graham. "We were attracted to the new GL2800M because the dedicated monitor design means it is very simple to use and there are loads of outputs."
"The built-in mic splitter is a very attractive, money-saving feature, and the preamps are clean and clear with loads of headroom," concluded Dorn. "Quite simply, the GL2800M gives 100 per cent good sound, and this is the fundamental quality we need to provide any band that's working a monitor mix."
