I'm immersed in jazz tonight
File.4 Speaker made by Electric Research Products
Mayuko Shinmura (Jazz Cafe Chigusa)

Chigusa is home to specially designed speakers designed in the 1970s. Tweeters and amplifiers are also made together, so there are many audiophiles who come from afar to listen to the sound of chigusa . The 4-way multi-amplifier system, which is ideal for audio, features the ability to reproduce record sounds as rich and deep as a tube amplifier.
However, this method can not be used without perseverance and considerable system knowledge enough to familiarize Jaja horses. Resume Chigusa later "sound Kugumoru" continuation or failure many times that, mind was not in the gas. I was sorry, but I was in a bad mood, but I did a major operation in 2016. Since then, it has become possible to provide a stable sound of chigusa .

Many of Chigusa 's regulars have worked for major media sound engineers and audio equipment manufacturers for many years. Listening to them, they often think that their whole house is like an acoustic device, and it is imagined that the number of records held is considerable.

The topic of recent years is the place where "treasures" such as records and audio equipment go. Many elderly, because I want to organize what has been the past few years "soon collected, argument in ChigusaWould you please take it? "
Among them, the most impressive was the 160-square-meter extra-large speaker that was larger than the Chigusa speaker. There was a limit in Noge's store of about 10 tsubo, so I was wondering if I could manage it.

The place is a 30-year-old log cabin near Kannonzaki, about 20 minutes by bus from Keikyu Electric Railway Miura Kaigan Station. The property was owned by a Chigusa official and had not been used for a long time, but when talking about a super-large speaker, he said, "Well, take it to a log cabin!" Furthermore, the fact that it is just wasteful to turn it into a warehouse raises the “seaside scape” plan. Let's turn the log cabin into a jazz cafe.

The extra-large speaker pushed into the log cabin is made in the United States. Established in 1928 as a company that handles studio and theater talkie equipment, it belongs to Electric Research Products. Predecessor of Altec. In keeping with the name of broadband loudspeakers, it maintained clear sound even at the loudness of a movie theater, and was used for military broadcasting.
Although the ones received are for home use, the figure is still quite large. There is also a horn. The horn is for concentrating the energy of sound and more efficiently delivering sound to distant listeners. There are no private houses around and you can walk to the sea for about 30 seconds. No matter how loudIt is an environment where no one complains even if you put it out.

I want to ring it quickly. What is the taste of the radish that grew up after hearing the jazz from the horn ...?

Noge Chigusa speaker and seaside Chigusa speaker. And I think to Chigusa of many people, taking over the two acoustic devices that are produced by aggregating the wisdom of sound, a new jazz story is about to begin in Miura.
It is interesting to see the regulars of Chigusa at the time of the opening of "Seaside Chigusa". It seems outspoken that the sound is heated in the discussion.
I want many people to come and listen to it, and I hope that it will be one of the highlights of Miura's cultural tourism.
