Legendary Blues Musician Buddy Guy Relies on Tripp Lite Power Protection
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL (May 17, 2007)–Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, is pleased to announce that Buddy Guy, five-time Grammy Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, trusts Tripp Lite power protection to keep electronic equipment safely powered during live performances both at his club, Buddy Guy’s Legends, and on the road.
Buddy Guy and the artists who play at Buddy Guy’s Legends depend on a vast collection of amplifiers, sound boards, mixers and other electronic equipment to help produce their signature blues sound. To protect all that valuable audio equipment from damage and performance problems, they rely on Tripp Lite Line Conditioners and Isobar Surge Suppressors.
“Buddy Guy has a reputation of being one of the most influential blues guitarists ever,” said Dave Katzman, Buddy Guy’s Production Manager. “Buddy Guy’s Legends is located in a vintage building with an equally vintage electrical system. We were plagued with constant power problems, including brownouts, overvoltages and surges. Even worse, a nearby electrical substation was producing severe EMI/RFI line noise interference that played havoc with the front of the house mixing console, effects racks and stage. Reliable, clean power is essential to the success of every show. Tripp Lite products ensure that Buddy and all the great musicians who play on our stage sound their best throughout every performance.”
Tripp Lite Line Conditioners provided Buddy Guy’s Legends with a cost-effective solution to these multiple threats. By automatically correcting brownouts and overvoltages back to safe levels, they prevent the hardware damage and performance problems associated with these all-too-frequent power fluctuations. Tripp Lite Line Conditioners also provide connected equipment with protection against catastrophic power surges.
“We are indeed proud that such a well-known musician as Buddy Guy uses Tripp Lite power products,” said Keelin Wyman, Tripp Lite Executive Vice President. “Our Line Conditioners and Isobar Surge Suppressors assure that sensitive audio equipment receives clean, safe power at all times. With Tripp Lite’s help, the unique musical talent of Buddy Guy and his fellow musicians comes through to the audience with all of its richness and character intact.”
