Abbey Road upgrades Studio Two with Van Damme cable

The legendary Studio Two at Abbey Road, ‘The ‘Beatles Studio’, has been upgraded with cable and assemblies supplied by distributor and manufacturer VDC Trading.

The purpose of the exercise was to create isolation booths and a new lounge, which involved converting a technical room into a large (dividable) room and converting what was the original control room into a smaller drum booth. There has also been a major investment in HD video facilities in Studio Two and throughout the whole building.

As well as extensive use of Van Damme Blue Series multipair audio cable, the cable requirements also included Van Damme HD Vision flexi coax, 5 way Red Series mini coax, and Van Damme Green Series Digi Grade cable, specifically designed for the accurate transmission of AES/EBU digital audio signals. Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE Starquad is used for microphone cables. The studio also uses VDC stage and wall boxes, with custom built front panels.

Studio Two has been at the heart of popular music since opening in 1931 and was famously home to historic recordings by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush and many more. Its unique design, warm acoustics and unparalleled history of recording have made it one of the most recognisable and sought after studios in the world.
