Hardware Crookwood - New Pro-sumer speaker on Kickstarter

Crookwood - New Pro-sumer speaker on Kickstarter-unnamed.png

For the last 23 years, Crookwood, a small British niche manufacturer, have quietly been hand making some of the world’s best recording/ mastering gear used by some of the world’s best engineers.
They realised that there was a need for a quality small speaker that could be used for both pro’s and consumers alike, providing great sound for consumers so they can really hear the efforts of the engineers, and a consumer reference for the pro’s in the studio.

The end result is a small,l cylindrical active speaker, called the SoundBucket. It has a passing resemblance to Crookwood’s Paintpot mic pre. The SoundBucket is being launched on Kickstarter, which is a great vehicle for a small company like Crookwood to both get exposure and raise working capital for the larger consumer market.

The SoundBucket has professional loudness, frequency responses and distortions specs, and is a league above the average consumer portable speaker. For studio use, Crookwood supply a professional interface box that accepts XLRs and automatically mono’s the signal for mono compatibility work, without needing extra power amps or bodges. The interface box also can be used for stereo work, to mains power the SoundBuckets, and an additional footswitch can be used to drastically cut the bass and treble, to simulate lower quality portable speakers.


The SoundBuckets have their own website, Soundbucket Speakers | Serious sound you can move around, and the Kickstarter campaign runs until 15th July, and offers good discounts over the regular pricing.

I ordered three of them. Very nice to have a "drop anywhere" monitor speaker just at the end of an xlr without looking for a power outlet.
