Celebrity music producers use only the best gear that can deliver the highest standards they uphold. That’s why we are really honored that Chuck Ainley chose our Creamer Plus as one of his go-to preamps.
His BackStage room within the Sound Stage Studio complex is one of the busiest in Nashville.
Chuck has worked with numerous recording artists including Mark Knopfler, Peter Frampton, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Cristina Aguilera, Willie Nelson, Melissa Ethereridge and Dixie Chicks to name only a few. Along with Knopfler and Bob Ludwig, in 2006 he collected the Grammy Award for Best Surround Sound Album for the surround production of the famous Dire Straits album Brothers in Arms.
So in his own words:
Creamer Plus is a A ridiculously versatile Tube Pre amp! It is like a Telefunken V72 but then you can switch it into pentode mode and get some interesting drive. It can also be used in line mode on a mix or run a mic channel back through the second channel for more drive. I’ve had a lot of fun with it!
Thank you, Chuck, and may the C+ yield many more hours of fun in the future!
