Furman Sound, a leading manufacturer of professional audio equipment and power conditioning products, is introducing their newest offering to the MI industry at Winter NAMM 2001. The SPB-8 is a pedal board that not only securely holds up to eight stereo or mono effects pedals, but it also is an extremely convenient way to transport and use your pedals. The SPB-8 also provides Furman's Power Conditioning to everything that is plugged into it.
"The SPB-8 is a very unique product," commented Joe Desmond, Furmans VP of Sales. "Our engineers have turned what is usually assembled in a musician's garage into a professional guitar product. It works with either mono or stereo effects located either on the pedal board or in a rack. It has two amplifier outputs as well as either mono or stereo effects sends and returns. There are three surge protected AC receptacles for providing power to amplifiers or other peripheral equipment and eight 9 VDC regulated and individually protected 1/8th inch power outlets that provide power to the pedals."
"When we were doing our market research many of the people we spoke to about this project were quite surprised that we were getting involved with this part of the industry" commented Steve Rose, Furmans V.P of Marketing. He went on to say, "Although this product is somewhat out of the norm for us, we feel that it is in line with our basic business philosophy. Build products that fill a niche, solve problems and present a good value. Additionally we feel that we are uniquely qualified to build this product since we have so many guitar players on our staff."
The SPB-8s solid aluminum board insures both rugged construction as well as minimal weight. Its surface is covered with a large heavy duty Velcro sheet that will provide a secure grip to any pedal or effects box. The retail price of $349.00 includes a cordura gig bag.
Furman Sound, one of the most familiar names in the pro audio industry for the past twenty five years is continuously expanding their line of Audio and Power Conditioning product offerings.
