The headquarters of UK music retailer Absolute Music boasts a massive recording and rehearsal complex, with 10 dedicated rehearsal rooms, five practice rooms, a recording studio and a café, which they have outfitted with QSC K Series loudspeakers in 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 addition to the QSC K10 loudspeakers, the facilities also carry microphones from AKG and Sennheiser.
“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 (pictured) and Cobain room, and as many as 10 bands can rehearse at any given time.
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.
