BishopSound, the fast-growing, Yorkshire-based pro sound speaker manufacturer, is making its NAMM debut this year with a promise to “reintroduce the British sound to professional PA equipment”.
Having recently launched its first passive line array system, and while simultaneously expanding its wide range of affordable PA equipment, this year BishopSound will introduce a new series British-designed and manufactured speakers.
The first of the new BishopSound models will be a 2×18 inch high power subwoofer, initially designed to complement the company’s new Delta Dual eight inch passive line array.
Also to be launched this year will be its new three-way enclosure featuring a 15 inch woofer, eight inch mid-range driver and 1.75 inch HF unit. The third BishopSound introduction will be a high-fidelity passive wedge monitor available in Left- or Right-hand versions.
BishopSound is working closely with the UK pro audio speaker manufacturer Celestion which will be producing speakers for the new products to BishopSound’s specification in its Ipswich factory in the UK. BishopSound has also partnered with speaker designer Mykey Hurley, which will see the company licence-building Hurley’s AK47 enclosure that has been making waves in the Reggae sound system market.
Andrew and Victoria Bishop will be welcoming visitors to the NAMM stand (booth 18600 in the ACC North Hall, Level 2) armed with another essential local product: samples of Yorkshire tea!
An exclusive interview with Andrew Bishop will be released online shortly or you can read it in the digital edition of the January issue here (p46).
