SCV Distribution has confirmed a new partnership with pro-audio outboard manufacturer Lindell Audio.
Lindell was at the NAMM Show last week to introduce a range of new products to the market, which SCV is now responsible for bringing to the UK and Germany exclusively alongside the Swedish brand's existing offering.
Two new lines have been revealed so far this year. Firstly, Lindell’s 500-series power racks have received a design overhaul. The new 506 and 510 Mk II include feed switches for each channel, enabling users to mix one channel into another without the need for extra cabling. Plus, users now have the choice of XLR or 25-pin DSub connectors on the rear of the chassis in order to cater for all scales of studio workflow.
Secondly, Lindell have announced the Retro-Series line, which comprises three studio preamp and processing models built for the 500-series format: Retro 51 (an OPA1731-powered preamp/DI and EQ module); Retro 76X (an 1176-style compressor featuring real hardware bypass) and a PEQ-501A program EQ (Lindell’s take on the original Pultec EQP1).
“We at Lindell Audio are thrilled to join forces with one of the UK's premier pro-audio equipment suppliers: SCV Distribution. SCV manages lots of the pro brands I have used throughout my professional career as a record producer – I specifically remember the Focal SM8, which I used to record and mix Grammy Award-winning bands back in the day," said Lindell Audio CEO Tobias Lindell.
“The work SCV has done with Focal over the past years has been inspiring, and we want to be a part of a team with such driving force. Our new and improved product range fits perfectly with the SCV palette – I’ve been friends with Ian Young a long time and it's now time to join forces and bring to market the best value 500-series lunchbox products money can buy.”
Ian Young, SCV's head of sales (pro audio), added: "SCV Distribution are delighted to welcome the Lindell Audio product range into our portfolio of distributed brands. A production revamp on the existing Lindell 500 series units coupled with the new release of the limited edition Retro-Series modules make it an extremely exciting time to begin our partnership."
