Studio Two

Studio Two at Abbey Road – the ‘Beatles Studio’ – has been enhanced with cable and assemblies from VDC Trading.

The upgrade is part of the ongoing changes at the famous facility, which included creating isolation booths and a new lounge (involving converting a ‘technical’ room into a large, dividable room and changing the what original control room into a smaller drum booth).

As well as extensive use of Van Damme Blue Series multipair audio cable, the cable requirements also included Van Damme HD Vision flexi coax, five way Red Series mini coax, and Green Series Digi Grade cable, specifically designed for the accurate transmission of AES/EBU digital audio signals.

Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE Starquad is used for microphone cables. The studio also uses VDC stage and wall boxes, with custom built front panels.

Studio Two opened in 1931 and was home to historic recordings by The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Kate Bush.
