“Dr” Huw Williams

DSC01728

Chief Engineer

What can we say about Huw? Originally BBC-trained, he’s been working with electronics and audio gear for 25 years or so...

A tour tech for much of his professional life, the list of people he has worked with would take up much of this page but runs the gamut from Take That to Depeche Mode, to Massive Attack, Portishead and most-recently Robert Plant. This combination of some of the best training in the world followed by years of working under battlefield conditions has given him a remarkable skill set and level of experience, combined with a calm, unflappable approach that can only come from having to fix a Space Echo on your back, torch clamped in teeth, behind the rack on stage while the band are in full flow.

Able to turn his hand to most things from synths, to valve tech, to motors and mechanics, he has a particularly deep knowledge of tape echo tech and has been responsible for us supplying machine after machine that consistently gets the response from experienced engineers and musicians, that they are the best they’ve heard. But for the future Huw’s most important role here is overseeing the training of new techs so that the skills and knowledge are passed to the next generation.

When he’s not in the workshop under a Binson he can be found cycling far and wide across the Derbyshire countryside, sampling the occasional real ale, and (if pressed) telling some mind-blowing stories that always seem to start with “oh, I was on tour with them for a bit…”
