Funky Junk, European supplier of new and refurbished professional recording equipment and services, has been appointed exclusive UK distributor by Finnish microphone manufacturer Sandhill Audio.
"Funky Junk's catalogue is exceptional and, being a high-end studio microphone, the Sandhill 6011A fitted nicely into their product range," says co-founder Petteri Taponen. "I was also really impressed with Mark Thomson (Funky Junk's managing director), who sent me a long email in response to my initial enquiry even though he was on holiday in Italy at the time. His straightforward way of communicating suited our approach to doing business and it also helped that the company came highly recommended by a number of our contacts."
Mark Thompson, adds: "The guys at Sandhill have achieved the seemingly impossible; they've designed a microphone that retains the airy warmth of the best ribbon mics with a rugged construction capable of coping with a kick drum, a jumbo jet, or a producer screaming at a tape op. The Sandhill 6011A isn't cheap, but great performances demand great microphones. We carry demo stock for discerning tests."
