3RD POWER ANNOUNCES ISSUANCE of US PATENT for AMPLIFIER DESIGN TECHNOLOGY
3RD POWER Amplification LLC, a musical instrument company focused on development of tube guitar amplification, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 8,699,743 covering speaker enclosure designs, methods of attachment and associated electronic circuitry for producing enhanced sound reproduction of electric guitar signals.
“The pursuit of better guitar tone has been a driver of our industry for decades,” says James Scott, CEO of 3RD POWER. “For our customers, the ultimate goal is to achieve the highest quality guitar tone possible with minimal hassle so they can be free to focus on giving their all to a great performance. Guitarists as well as recording and sound engineers should be really excited that a music company exists today focused on fulfilling their needs and desires and that 3RD POWER was issued a patent for technology that is geared to deliver just that.”
Compared to traditional methods of electric guitar amplification, 3RD POWER’s enhanced technology reduces standing waves, noise and various other sources of signal degradation for an improved clarity and refined sound quality of amplified and recorded electric guitar signals. Free of external signal processors or complicated equipment arrangements, the implementation of this technology is invisible to the guitarist. They simply plug in and play as they would with any other instrument and amplifier setup.
Since 2010, 3RD POWER has been a leader specializing in guitar amplification. Innovative technology such as the technology exemplified by this recent patent has enabled the company to garner early adopters in recording production with clients such as Dann Huff, Justin Neibank, Paul Ebersold, Pete Kipley and Chris Stephens. In the area of live performance, early adopters include Joe Walsh, Lenny Kravitz, Simon Townshend (The Who) and Hunter Hayes.
“Our culture of innovation ensures that we are constantly improving our technology and we have several other patents pending. Patents such as this one exemplify 3RD POWER’s commitment to providing market-leading technology to address the complex sound reinforcement needs of today’s guitar driven musical performance and production,” stated James Scott, CEO of 3RD POWER.
