NAMM 2015: Sound Composites to introduce first graphite loudspeaker9 January 2015
Sound Composites will introduce its first speaker for live performance, the Sonusphere (pictured), at the NAMM Show this month.
The company, a division of Moses Graphite, has until now focussed on carbon-graphite composite components for stringed musical instruments, including fingerboards, bridges and tailpieces for cello, violin and double bass.
Sound Composites says Sonusphere’s “unique design improves the amplified sound quality of acoustic and electric instruments and vocals”. It continues: “Their lightweight hemispherical shape incorporates the most advanced technologies to deliver ultra-wide dispersion with remarkably flat response.”
The Sonusphere’s design also reportedly “virtually eliminates the sound-killing diffraction that is common in speaker boxes”, “accurately reflect[ing] the well-established definitions of high-quality natural sound”.
The four flagship loudspeaker models for guitar, bass and PA incorporate Eminence drivers with optional 300- or 700-watt ICEpower amplification.
“Not since Moses Carbon Graphite introduced its uniquely engineered Moses Graphite electric and acoustic stringed instrument necks at Winter NAMM 1990 has Moses, Inc., rolled-out a similarly sound-changing set of products,” says Moses’ press release. Judge for yourself at booth 5294 in hall B!
