USA - John ‘Lou’ Lousteau, chief engineer at Foo Fighters’ Studio 606, recently installed a pair of JBL Professional 7 Series master reference monitors at the recording studio.
The engineer and producer has worked with the likes of Iggy Pop and Joan Jett and also records at Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins home studios, as well as his own home studio.
He was so impressed by the performance of the JBL 7 Series monitors at Studio 606 that he equipped his and Taylor’s studios with them as well.
“We’ve used monitors from dozens of different brands over the years, but there’s something special about the JBL 7 Series - they just speak to me,” says Lousteau. “Something about them sounds really good. They have a tightness in the low-end, and the mids and highs and really transparent and clear - they’re super accurate. As soon as I heard them, I was like ‘Oh, those are killer!’ Within two months I bought a pair for my house and for Taylor’s house.”
