David Prater Productions

Renowned multi-platinum selling record producer and musician, David Prater, recently called Bag End. David is still impressed with his Bag End S12-B Loudspeaker after thirty years of use. He spoke extensively about how many of the records he’s known for feature the sound of Bag End.

The S12-B was critically important for his legendary work with Dream Theater’s guitar virtuoso John Petrucci. David produced their Atco East/West Records international multi-platinum breakout album “Images & Words”. He used the S12-B for his work with Bill Leverty, from Firehouse, on their two multi-platinum records for Epic. This speaker was also used on former Ratt lead singer Stephen Pearcey’s debut project, “Arcade” (also on Epic Records). On enumerable occasions, David said guitar players would bring in their favorite 4 x12” speaker cabinets, only to abandon them once he demonstrated the advantage that would be attained by letting them use the S12-B. David uses the Bag End S12-B musical instrument loudspeaker for a wide variety of applications, including reamping bass guitar tracks because of it’s tight, focused imaging.
