Enfield, CT (July 7, 2005)–CharterOak Acoustic Devices has welcomed the addition of two distributors to cover Spain and Sweden. Swedish distributor Soundware Sweden and Spanish distributor Mastering Mansion Madrid are slated to begin selling CharterOak’s flagship SA538 microphone along with the SA538B and S600 starting this month.
CharterOak’s been very busy finalizing deals with distributors in Europe since exhibiting at AES Barcelona. The plan is to welcome a select few distributors by August to cover the UK, Australia, Europe, and Asia. Both Soundware and Mastering Mansion have a solid reputation for providing quality pro-audio products in their region.
A Charter Oak spokesman said, “The reception towards us has been overwhelming since exhibiting at Barcelona AES. Our goal was to increase exposure by introducing CharterOak to Europe. We expected harsh criticism knowing we’ve jumped into a competitive market that has been home to many well-established companies known for producing phenomenal microphones. We don’t feel that we are competing with those brands, rather, providing yet another option to the vast pallet of colors that every producer and engineer reaches for when capturing a performance. Our sound is unique, modern and affordable for the home recordist as well as the established studio. We have no interest in cloning the old classic microphones; rather, we’re creating the classics of tomorrow.”
The current product line from CharterOak includes the SA538 Side Address Dual Diaphragm Tube Condenser, the SA538B Side Address Dual Diaphragm Tube Condenser, and the S600 Front Address Cardioid Tube Condenser.
