Martin Audio has released images of their Glastonbury Festival LEGO™ model featuring MLA that will be on display at Prolight+Sound 2015 in Frankfurt at their stand F60 in Hall 8.0.
The model built by Bright Bricks, a professional LEGO building company, took over 120 man hours and 12,500 bricks to complete and sits on a stand measuring 3.9 ft. x 3.9 ft. Featuring the iconic Pyramid Stage, the model has full replica MLA hangs and MLX subwoofers in place while a flag-waving crowd listen on. There is even a queue for the toilets.
Commissioned by James King, Director of Marketing, he said, “We wanted to celebrate our involvement in arguably the most prestigious festival in the world and the record breaking success of MLA last year. We thought as a bit of theatre for this year’s Prolight+Sound it would garner lots of attention.”
Courtesy of RG Jones Sound Engineering, Martin Audio has been the main PA of the iconic Pyramid stage since 2007, and in 2014 its MLA system broke records with the loudest recorded sound levels at FOH whilst still maintaining the strict off site noise pollution levels.
King continued, “It’s one of the projects that you get a real kick out of: LEGO, Loudspeakers, Glastonbury…what more is there to life?!
“We’ve had many people asking whether we will mass produce these, but this will definitely be a one off. We have, however, produced 500 Limited Edition LEGO Certified Professional MLA Mini models that will sure to be seen on many of our partner’s desks in the coming weeks.”
Standing at nearly 4.7 in. tall, the MLA Mini model is gift boxed with instructions on how to build it and comes with decorating stickers.
“It doesn’t make any sound, but it’s sure to create quite a stir,” summed up King.
