The Scientist Dub Supersonic Studio Monitors at Marcel Philipp’s Studio

“The Scientist Dub Supersonic Studio Monitors & Amplifier Set” – New Gear Alert

Legendary sound engineer and dub pioneer, Scientist, also known as Hopeton Brown, has designed for multi-instrumentalist and producer Marcel Phillips, and will soon be releasing on the open market, what he calls “The Scientist Dub Supersonic Studio Monitors & Amplifier Set.” Enclosed in this article are photos and a brief promotional video clip showing a fully finished model of this new custom-made gear, by one of the best in business, that will soon be available for purchase.

Scientist explained he has designed these new studio monitors because: “I’m finding the standard studio monitors and amplifier sets do not handle the jackhammer drum and bass—that reggae or any type of bass-driven music such as hip hop demands—without the amplifiers running out of headroom (and start to clip). And then, the standard speakers that’s made from paper, after awhile the paper gets weaker. If you take paper and keep rubbing it up in your hand, after awhile the paper becomes mushy. King Tubby and I [always used] materials along with spray paint to thicken the standard paper cone back in the 70s. As usual, we started these [techniques], then the world catches up 30 years later.”

The specifications for “The Scientist Dub Supersonic Studio Monitors & Amplifier Set” are “2 X 5000 Watts RMS, and 20 Hz to 20 Khz.” A smaller non-commercial version of this set (for home studios) will also be available for purchase.
