Maplewood Studio helps makes a Line 6 global training video, accidently!
Many of you know but some of you wont, but Maplewood Studio, is owned and run buy Paul ‘Stick’ Annis who records all of the audio for Andertons Music Stores online product demonstrations. These are posted on to YouTube as well as being shown in store giving the consumer greater knowledge of as many products as they can possibly demonstrate, helping the consumer make those super important gear decisions!
The demonstration team consists of ‘Captain’ (the man behind the shop & the one who makes it all possible, Lee Anderton) and his partner in crime, YouTube guitar guru Rob Chapman and between them much chaos and carnage is created! Stick’s job is to make sure that what you hear back is a true representation of the products being demonstrated, from stomp box’s to acoustic guitars to £4000 guitar amps, it’s all in there and where appropriate high quality audio is presented on SoundCloud in a uncompressed format.
September 2011 Captain & Chappers were here at Maplewood Studio along with Paul Hindmarsh Line 6’s independent global demonstrator to demonstrate the new Line 6 DT25 amp and cab. So, we shot the demo for this amazing new product over the day, infact Chappers had been playing with it the day before and was blown away with it, it’s an amazing bit of kit! It is a proper amp in every sense with no ‘modelling’ in site but with a few hard wired switches you could make this sound like many of the classic amplifiers all guitarists dream of owning by changing the valve characteristics. As usual with Line 6, add a couple more of the DT25’s sister products into the mix and wow, this set-up has so many tricks up it’s sleeve it’s unreal and they all sound SO GOOD! Check out the full video here -
BUT, what has really taken us by surprise is that LINE 6 themselves were so impressed with the audio and video quality and by the videos content they have made it part of their World Wide product training for the DT25, How cool is that! Maplewood Studio is slowly getting on the map.
Proud Stick out…
