Producer/Engineer Andy Johns Continues to Deliver Legendary Mixes With HARMAN’s JBL LSR Studio Monitors

NORTHRIDGE, California – Recording engineer and producer Andy Johns is best known for his masterful engineering on the legendary Led Zeppelin’s IV and The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street albums. With an impressive career spanning over 40 years, Johns’ most recent projects include The Layla Sessions: 20th Anniversary Edition by Derek and the Dominoes, Up Close by Eric Johnson, Bingo! by Steve Miller, Chickenfoot by Chickenfoot, and Switchblade Glory by Switchblade Glory. Today, Johns relies on HARMAN’s JBL LSR6322 studio monitors for his current projects in his Los Angeles studio.

A longtime user of JBL studio monitors, Johns brings his JBL LSR6322’s with him when his work takes him out of his own studio. “What I love is that I can take them anywhere,” Johns said. “Whenever I’m unsure about the sound, I know I can trust the JBL monitors, and it’s an easy switch to set them up and plug in. Steve Miller even liked them so much when we were working together, he was convinced to buy a pair.”

Johns continues to use the JBL LSR6322’s because of their reliable performance in any environment. “With any new control room it takes time to hear what’s coming out of the speakers, but with the JBL’s it takes such little time for me to get adjusted in any environment and I haven’t had a bad day yet. They are still fresh as daisies even though I work them hard.”

Johns has been through his share of equipment, seeing the technology evolve throughout the years. “When I was growing up in England, you simply got used to whatever they had. But the technology has advanced so much. “I’ve never had a complaint with past JBL speakers, however, the new ones sound better than anything. For the price, you can’t go wrong either. I am very comfortable using the JBL LSR6322’s and already have had great success with them,” Johns concluded.
