Kevin ZambranaWestlake Village, CA (September 25, 2009)–Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro) has supplied Kevin Zambrana with an array of recording and live sound equipment, including an SSL AWS900+ SE console.
Zambrana, president of Zambrana Productions, has been making records for 30 years, and for the last 10 has branched out into live concert production, artist management, live sound, lighting, staging, backline and pro audio equipment rental, reflecting the diversity of the emerging new business model in the music industry. Zambrana has also produced and done sound for live events at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the Beacon Theater, the Copacabana and other major venues, with artists including Tito Puente, Mark Anthony, the Temptations, Ne-Yo, Cyndi Lauper and Joss Stone. Recently, Zambrana turned to GC Pro, the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users.
Michael Yorky, account manager at the New York location of GC Pro, arranged the sale of an array of equipment, starting with the centerpiece of Zambrana’s recording studio, an SSL AWS900+ SE with Awsomation. Working with GC Pro colleagues Niyi Adelekan and Angelo Vasquez, Yorky put together a comprehensive package that also includes three Focusrite ISA828 8-channel mic pres, a Digidesign Pro Tools|HD3 system, an Apple Mac Pro Quad Core computer with an Apple 23-inch Cinema Display HD flat panel monitor, the Waves Diamond TDM bundle, a Yamaha M7CL 48 48-channel live sound mixing console with a Yamaha MBM7CL meter bridge and a Roland Fantom-G8 88 keyboard workstation, as well as Ampeg and VOX guitar and bass amplifiers, and flight cases for touring.
“The fact that Michael was able to give me a single source for both pro audio equipment and musical instrument gear really tells the story,” says Zambrana, who has known Yorky for 25 years.
