Van Damme for Abbey Road Studio 52

Abbey Road chooses Van Damme cables and connectors for new Studio 52, following Studio 2 refit

Abbey Road Studios’ Studio 52 is now fully wired for sound, and features Van Damme cables and connectors. The install closely follows an all-Van Damme cabling refit at Abbey Road’s iconic Studio 2.

What was a production room has been transformed into a state of the art studio and is home to Abbey Road’s newly purchased SSL Duality SE console. Along with the Duality, Studio 52 is equipped with a Pro Tools 10 Native HD system with extensive plug-ins, a selection of classic analogue outboard gear and B&W and ADAM monitoring. The studio selected Van Damme cables and connectors, distributed by VDC Trading, to provide reliable connectivity and high quality signal transmission.

Van Damme products used in Studio 52 range from Microphone Cables to Blue Series and Green Series 8 Pair DSUB Looms, Speaker Cables and Patch Cables, as well as Van Damme VDM Circular Audio Multi Pin Connectors.

Simon Campbell, Technical Manager at Abbey Road Studios, said: “We have a long relationship with VDC Trading, which has supplied Van Damme cable for many of our other facilities in the past. As a result, we know that Van Damme cable and connectors deliver excellent value for money. They perform very well over a long period and are easy to work with during and after installation.”
