Funky Junk Takes On UK Distribution For Sandhill Audio

(January 07, 2014)
DMN Newswire--2014-1-7--

Funky Junk, Europe's leading supplier of new and refurbished professional recording equipment and services, has been appointed exclusive UK distributor by Finnish microphone manufacturer Sandhill Audio.

Established in 2008 by sound engineers Riku Pasanen, Petteri Taponen and Sammy Roiha, Sandhill Audio launched its first product in 2011 ? the 6011A ribbon microphone.

"We?re continuously working on new designs and prototypes and eventually the range will grow," says co-founder Petteri Taponen. "However, any product we release has to justify its existence. We will not put out anything just to have more items in the catalogue."


Taponen adds that Funky Junk was chosen to handle Sandhill's UK distribution because it has a strong reputation for handling innovative pro audio products.
 
"Funky Junk's catalogue is exceptional and, being a high-end studio microphone, the Sandhill 6011A fitted nicely into their product range," Taponen says. "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."

Sandhill Audio's 6011A Ribbon Microphone is designed to sound exceptional while being free of the usual limitations of ribbon microphone technology. Although primarily designed for high end studio applications, the microphone is sufficiently versatile that it can also be used in live environments.

Mark Thompson, Managing Director of Funky Junk, 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."
