Martin Audio has released images of its Glastonbury Festival LEGO model featuring MLA that will be on display at the upcoming Prolight+Sound 2015 in Frankfurt, stand F60 in Hall 8.0.
The model, built by Bright Bricks, a professional LEGO building company, took more than 120 man-hours and 12,500 bricks to complete and sits on a stand measuring 3.9 feet x 3.9 feet. Featuring the iconic Pyramid Stage, the model has full replica MLA hangs and MLX subwoofers in place while a flag-waving crowd listen on.
“We wanted to celebrate our involvement in arguably the most prestigious festival in the world and the record breaking success of MLA last year,” says James King, Martin Audio director of marketing, who commissioned the model. “We thought as a bit of theatre for this year’s Prolight+Sound it would garner lots of attention.”
Courtesy of RG Jones Sound Engineering, Martin Audio has been the main PA at the Pyramid stage since 2007.
“We’ve had many people asking whether we will mass produce these, but this will definitely be a one-off,” King adds. “We have, however, produced 500 Limited Edition LEGO Certified Professional MLA Mini models that will sure to be seen on many of our partner’s desks in the coming weeks.”
Standing at nearly 4.7 inches tall, the MLA Mini model is gift boxed with instructions on how to build it, and comes with decorating stickers. “It doesn’t make any sound, but it’s sure to create quite a stir,” King concludes.
