TC Group International (TCGI) will continue to manage direct relationships with a small number of key accounts in the UK, but JHS’ pro audio division will begin handling all other VQ Live business immediately.
JHS has been involved with TC over the past couple of years and was recently appointed as a full-line joint-distributor for the UK for the TC-owned Lab Gruppen power amplifier range, alongside its HK Audio, Allen & Heath and LA Audio pro product ranges.
“JHS’s impressive track record in the live sound market and its long standing reputation for professionalism and commitment to ongoing customer support across the entire UK market, make this new partnership an exciting prospect,” said Simeon Ludwell, TCGI's UK touring sales manager. “We look forward to working with them in realising the full potential of VQ Live and delivering it to the UK and ROI market.”
JHS MD Dennis Drumm added: “We are delighted to continue to expand our relationship with TCGI, and bring Tannoy VQ Live to the wider pro audio and specialist reseller market. VQ Live perfectly complements our existing pro audio range and enables us to offer an even wider range of solutions.”
The VQ Live system will be on show on Tannoy’s stand (1-B10) at the forthcoming PLASA show at Earl’s Court this month. Sales and technical staff will be on hand to discuss this and any other Tannoy products. JHS Pro Audio will also be exhibiting at PLASA (1-E5), where Neville Raine and Stuart McKay will be on hand to take enquiries.
