Immerse yourself in jazz tonight
File.4 Electric Research Products Speaker
Mayuko Niimura (Chigusa, a jazz cafe)

A special speaker designed in the 1970s sits in Chigusa . Since Tsuwita and amplifier is also something which made together, to listen to the "sound of Chigusa", the audience of audiophiles that come from all the way farther often. It is a 4-way multi-amplifier system system that can be said to be ideal for audio, and features the rich and deep record sound of a vacuum tube amplifier.
However, this method cannot be used without patience and considerable system knowledge to familiarize Jaja horses. Resume Chigusa later "sound Kugumoru" continuation or failure many times that, mind was not in the gas. I managed to calm down and was in a good mood, but I decided to perform a major surgery in 2016. Since then, it has become possible to provide a stable " chigusano sound".

Many of Chigusa 's regulars have worked for many years as audio technicians and audio equipment manufacturers in major media. When I hear the story, I often think that their house is like an audio device, and I imagine that they have a considerable number of records.

The topic in recent years is the destination of "treasure" such as records and audio equipment. There are many elderly people, and for the past few years, "I want to sort out what I have collected, so I will pull it with Chigusa .The number of inquiries about "Would you like me to pick it up?" Has increased.
The most striking was the 160 cm square super-large speaker, which is larger than the Chigusa speaker. Noge's store of about 10 tsubo has a limit, so I was wondering if I could do something about it, but by chance, a story about how to use a certain place came in.

The place is a 30-year-old log house near Kannonzaki, about 20 minutes by bus from Keikyu Miurakaigan Station. It was a property owned by a person related to Chigusa, and it hadn't been used for a long time, but when I talked about the super-large speaker, he said, "Then, take it to the log house!" In addition, the "seaside chigusa" plan is raised because it is just a waste to make it a warehouse. Let's turn the log house into a jazz coffee shop.

The extra-large speaker pushed into the log house is made in the United States. It belongs to Electric Research Products, which was founded in 1928 as a company that handles talkie equipment for studios and theaters. It is the predecessor of Altech. Befitting the name of a wideband loudspeaker, it kept clear sound even at a loud volume comparable to that of a movie theater, and was also used for military broadcasting.
Although the ones I received are for home use, the figures are still quite large. There is also a horn. The horn is for concentrating the energy of sound and delivering the sound to a distant listener more efficiently. There are no private houses around, and if you walk for about 30 seconds, you will reach the sea. No matter how loudIt is an environment where no one will complain even if you put it out.

I want to ring it quickly. What is the taste of radish grown up listening to the jazz that arrives from the horn?

Noge Chigusa speaker and seaside Chigusa speaker. A new jazz story is about to begin in Miura, taking over these two audio devices, which were produced by consolidating many people's feelings for Chigusa and the wisdom of sound.
At the time of the opening of "Seaside Chigusa", it is interesting to take a regular of Chigusa and compare them. It seems that the noise and the heat of the acoustic discussion are enthusiastic.
I would like many people to come and listen to it, and I hope that it will become one of the highlights of Miura's cultural tourism.
