FEBRUARY 2013 NEWSLETTER
James Lindenschmidt, General Manager of RealTraps, here with the February newsletter. We hope everyone is weathering the winter storms well. We in New England are buried under a few feet of snow! In fact, our factory was shut down for several days as a result of Nemo, though we are back up and running as of today. Those of you waiting for orders rest assured we are working hard to get them shipped to you ASAP.
CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL: Mark Garrison
This month's customer testimonial comes from Mark Garrison of Sound Garrison Recording Studio:
Thanks for blogging your thoughts about your RealTraps experience, Mark!
A GRIM REMINDER
February 2013 marks the 10-year anniversary of The Station Fire in which 100 people tragically lost their lives in the fourth-deadliest nightclub fire in US history in West Warwick, RI. This anniversary underscores the importance of fire safety in the music world with regard to acoustic treatment, since the foam treatments installed at The Station were implicated in the rapid spread of the flames. We at RealTraps encourage everyone who installs acoustic treatment - whether they make their own, buy from us, or buy from another manufacturer - to make sure their treatments are safe, preferably with a Class A Fire rating. If you'd like to help the families of the victims, please support The Station Family Fund or The Station Fire Memorial Foundation.
THE FEBRUARY SPECIAL
This month, we have a variety of MondoTrap Seconds available in a few different colors. (A "second" means it may have minor cosmetic flaws such as a scratch on the metal frame or a seam in the fabric, but it is still fully functional.) We are blowing them out at $249.99 each, with no minimum purchase. Quantities are limited, so contact us quickly if you'd like to reserve a few. This offer is good until February 28, 2013.
See you next month!
