Why yes, it does - we have devised a complex system that we call Fourier Analysed Relief Transfer, and this avoids excess over-pressure situations in the A.R.S.E system.
Otherwise there are manual controls mounted to the motor, so you've just got to pop up the ladder and adjust to taste :thumbup:

It's a positive pressure system, i.e. pushing dusty air out of the studio, rather than sucking it in. Nonetheless I'd suggest ensuring toupees are appropriately secure, as even the hood of your audiophile-grade coverall suits (mandatory for all artists, of course) may not be sufficient given the power of the system. We recommend using a high-powered industrial vacuum cleaner on your clients' heads before granting them entry just to ensure that their hair is suitably secure, and thus preserving their dignity.

That makes sense. I might take a belt and braces approach actually, and ask Mr Simon if it would be OK to coat his head in PVA and, whilst that dries, strap some gaffa around his whole head, ie under his chin etc, just to make sure. I suppose this might restrict his mouth movements a little, but a slightly tight-lipped vocal sound is clearly better than losing your hairdo altogether during the middle 8. Your hoover test would then be a useful final safety check before zipping him into his suit. Log Industries really does think of everything!

How long does the installation take, as Mr Simon's manager is keen that I transfer the introduction fee asap?

Real bristle shaving brush duly purchased as recommended above. Probably not worth a full in-depth SOS review but have to say it's a brilliant solution to dusty rack stuff, speaker cones and those difficult-to-get-at keyboard bits.

Of course the dust just settles somewhere else after you've swept the kit, but short term it's a marvellous solution for dusty nooks and, indeed, crannies.

I feel like after all these years I've finally been able to give something back to the forum. :thumbup:

Guitars are like partners. You know within 10 seconds of picking one up whether or not it's a keeper.

Each day. Assuming there will be clients there each day. My old studio had carpet which required vacuuming every day but the new studio has wooden floors which can go a week before needing a clean.
