Paddy Hocken from Paddy Hocken Productions contacted CPL Felthams regarding some textile covers for an upcoming Biffy Clyro tour.
Our Designer visited the stage during a downtime in rehearsals and measured up all of the equipment that needed to be covered.
The brief was not to provide padded protection of the equipment to avoid damage as it was being loaded and unloaded at various venues around the country. But simply to avoid dust and dirt getting into the sensitive areas of the electronics and for general protection and security purposes.
The brief was to make some covers fit snugly and others, particularly the drumkits, to be very loosely fitting, so that they could easily be taken on and off.
Branded with the Biffy Clyro logo the covers were a major success – so much so that we have subsequently worked with Paddy on projects for The Kings of Leon, Royal Blood and most recently the 2018 Queen & Adam Lambert tour.
Paddy’s comments on the latest covers for Queen & Adam Lambert supplied this summer are below:
“Meant to write to you sooner... the covers are bloody brilliant!
