UK – Located in Northampton, Audio Works is a dedicated rehearsal facility catering for every kind of artist, from absolute beginner to seasoned professional. With three soundproofed rehearsal rooms and a wide range of leading brand back-line and drum-kits available for clients’ use, this popular facility has gone from strength to strength since it opened in 2010.
A little over two years ago, Audio Works was taken over by new owners who, while retaining the key features that had been essential in creating the studio’s great reputation, wished to refresh and add a new dimension to the business. Having redecorated and re-lit the rehearsal spaces and added a fully-equipped daytime meeting space to their offer, the Audio Works team also took the decision to upgrade their audio systems.
Director at Audio Works, Andy Labrum, invested in an HH Electronics solution, choosing loudspeakers from the UK manufacturer’s Tensor range:
“I’m keen to make sure that bands visiting Audio Works have the best possible experience from the minute they enter – that obviously has to include fantastic audio systems. A couple of members of my own band had seen a demo of the HH Tensor Series and were raving about it. With that kind of enthusiasm, I thought I’d better check it out for myself and wasn’t disappointed.”
Each of the three rehearsal rooms at Audio Works was equipped with two Tensor TRE-1201 12” active loudspeakers and two TRS1500 active subs, to provide a robust solution that delivers exceptional performance and reliability. The Tensor range was created in 2020 by HH with two key focus points in mind – premium audio performance and fantastic value for money, making it the perfect choice for applications like Audio Works, where great sound is essential but budgets can be tight.
Andy continues: “The speakers sound incredible, whatever the style or genre of music going through the system. Whether it’s a full-on band really going for it, someone using to backing tracks, or playing gentle acoustic material, the clarity and depth of sound is stunning – the response from musicians using the rooms has been excellent.”
Audio Works continues to develop its offering, and has diversified into providing office space on a newly constructed mezzanine which is currently being used by a local charity. A new online booking system has made access to the facilities easier, enabling the operation to run more efficiently, and now equipped with premium HH Electronics audio systems, the future for this popular Northampton rehearsal venue looks bright.
