Gibson Brands launches active monitors in three sizes 20/01/15
Gibson Brands, Inc. tells us that they continue to honor the roots of Les Paul, who first pioneered the solid body electric guitar and later introduced multitrack recording with the release of the Gibson Les Paul Reference Monitors, which carry on his name as synonym for creativity and passion for music. This is the story in their own words...
"Take a look at the sound engineer, the producer, the musician or the fan who loves a great listening experience. All of them share one dream: to have the one reliable reference monitor that they can trust and enjoy both in the studio and at home.
Combining 200 years of expertise in guitar, studio monitor and home speaker manufacturing, Gibson Brands created a line of monitors that satisfies the needs of true audio professionals and music enthusiasts alike. These monitors represent a new level of performance and were made to become the personal reference, whether mixing or recording, producing, being an artist, or simply listen to your music at home.
The monitors represent superior definition with the iconic Les Paul styling, utilizing superior material, including diamond-like carbon coated titanium tweeters, non-woven carbon woofers and custom-made amplification to ensure ultra clean transient impulse response and large headroom. The Les Paul Reference Monitors will be available in three different sizes and multiple color variations, such as cherry, tobacco sunburst and cherry sunburst. Enjoy!"
Pricing and Availability: The monitors will be available by February 2015 at a U.S. MAP of $599 (LP4), $799 (LP6) and $999 (LP8).
