Glen Cove, NY (May 2, 2018) — Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers with a rich history in creating classic guitar tones known the world over, is pleased to be a sponsor of the second annual John Petrucci’s Guitar Universe, a four-day and night summer shred event to be held August 6th to 10th 2018 at the Glen Cove Mansion in Glen Cove, NY. Attendees who register for the event by June 1, 2018 will receive a number of registration bonuses, including a Celestion Impulse Response (IR) Digital Download.
The event, which is intended for players and music-lovers of all ages, levels, interests and tastes, is presented by Dreamcatcher Events, Guitar World and Guitar Player Magazines, and features artists and instructors such as Guthrie Govan, Tosin Abasi, Tony MacAlpine, Rusty Cooley, Andy James, Mike Mangini, Jason Richardson, Jon Finn, and very special guest Al Di Meola. The program offers activities and workshops for all guitar enthusiasts, from beginner to advanced and will cover everything from technique to music theory and how to get a specific sound through the correct equipment choice.
Celestion has provided three unique IR mixes valued at $50 for attendees of the event, which can be ported directly into modeling hardware or DAW software, delivering breathtakingly realistic guitar speaker tone. Celestion IRs, which capture the essential behavior of the cabinet in the specific space it was recorded, including the frequency and phase response of single drivers as well as the interaction of multiple speakers, offer significant benefits. In both recording and live production, Celestion IRs enable the desired tone to be precisely and consistently reproduced regardless of the music recording or live sound environment. IR users can escape the limitations of a single mic and cabinet setup and explore a universe of possibilities to create the perfect tone. This tone can then be precisely recreated, in the studio or on the road, time after time. Celestion IR digital downloads also offer the ability to audition specific models before purchasing one or more physical speakers.
Created by Celestion using state-of-the-art gear, award-winning engineers and a world-class live room, Celestion Impulse Responses offer users unlimited creativity and possibilities in owning their perfect tone.
On the official Impulse Response website, Celestion Plus, IRs featuring many classic Celestion loudspeaker models, each in five different speaker cabinets and may be auditioned, purchased, and downloaded for use in studio and live production applications.
“We are thrilled to partner with Celestion for John Petrucci’s Guitar Universe. Many of our artists depend on Celestion for the signature sound, so we are understandably excited to be able to share these IRs with our campers. I literally got a call yesterday from a JPGU camper hoping that he could get his IRs before the camp started,” adds Danny Heaps, Founder, Dreamcatcher Events.
Register for John Petrucci’s Guitar Universe and get your Celestion IR Digital Download when you arrive at the camp.
