SCV Distribution has revealed a new partnership with pro audio outboard manufacturer Lindell Audio.
Tobias Lindell, CEO (pictured), says: “SCV manages lots of the pro brands I have used throughout my professional career as a record producer – I specifically remember the Focal SM8, which I used to record and mix Grammy Award winning bands back in the day. The work SCV has done with Focal over the past years has been inspiring, and we want to be a part of a team with such driving force. Our new and improved product range fits perfectly with the SCV palette – I’ve been friends with Ian Young for a long time and it’s now time to join forces and bring to market the best value 500-series lunchbox products money can buy!”
SCV will bring the new line-up to the UK and Germany, including Lindell’s 500-series power racks, which have received a design overhaul. The 506 and 510 Mk II incarnations include feed switches for each channel, enabling users to mix one channel into another without the need for extra cabling. Plus, users now have the choice of XLR or 25-pin DSub connectors on the rear of the chassis in order to cater for all scales of studio workflow.
Lindell have also announced their Retro-Series line comprised of three studio preamp and processing models built for the 500-Series format: The Retro 51 (an OPA1731-powered Preamp/DI and EQ module), Retro 76X (an 1176 style compressor featuring real hardware bypass) and a PEQ-501A program EQ (Lindell’s take on the original Pultec EQP1).
Ian Young, head of sales (Pro Audio) SCV Distribution, comments: “A production revamp on the existing Lindell 500 series units coupled with the new release of the limited edition Retro-Series modules make it an extremely exciting time to begin our partnership.”
