KRK has taken its classic studio monitors to the next level with the new KRK Scott Storch CLASSIC 8ss. This limited-edition release is a game-changer in the pro audio industry. Created in collaboration with the iconic producer Scott Storch, whose beats have graced numerous GRAMMY-winning albums and hit singles like Chris Brown’s “Undecided,” Dr Dre’s “Still D.R.E.,” and Drake’s “6 Man,” these eight-inch studio monitors offer the same top-notch features that have made the CLASSIC 8 monitors Storch’s go-to choice.

Each CLASSIC 8ss comes with a cool gold chrome electroplated front baffle, along with Storch’s logo and signature, making it a must-have for any serious engineer, mixer, or Scott Storch enthusiast. These studio monitors must be Scott's secret to creating hits because they have star power behind them!

“For years, the KRK CLASSIC 8 monitors have been essential to my artistic music-making process,” says Scott Storch. “To now have personalized versions of my favorite studio monitors is an exciting venture for me.

Designing these monitors has been such a cool experience--one that you don’t often see happen. I’m honored that KRK chose me for its first-ever artist collaboration. I can’t wait to see everyone rocking the Scott Storch CLASSIC 8ss monitors”.

“We are excited to launch our first artist signature series model and with none other than Scott Storch, an innovator in production, and a legend in the music industry,” says Sterling Doak, Senior Director of Marketing for Gibson Brands.

“Scott has consistently been supportive of KRK, between his initial adoption of the original CLASSIC 8 models in his studio, and serving as a mentor for the KRK Kreator Classic, Scott’s partnership with the Gibson family has been a significant one.

Now, the KRK Scott Storch CLASSIC 8ss allow us to showcase Scott as a marquee artist. This signature model was designed with Scott to emphasize the eccentric, unique flair that brought him to the level of notoriety he has today”.

Nice to see record producers getting their props. You know, sometimes it feels like the performers hog all the spotlight, and the producers get sidelined. People tend to overlook the genius behind the scenes because they're too focused on the artist.

So, big ups to Scott and all the other record producers out there!

Scott Storch's CLASSIC 8ss Monitor Gets A Gold Chrome Upgrade

Storch's CLASSIC 8ss monitor got a fresh makeover, swapping out the standard black for a flashy gold chrome faceplate, giving it that signature Storch style.

His autograph adds a personal touch up top, while the back sports his logo—complete with his trademark shades—and his signature. It's a unique sound solution that amps up the vibe and looks in any studio or space.

While the changes are all about the looks, these iconic monitors still pack in all the features that make them Storch's go-to. They're built on KRK's legacy of top-notch sound quality and performance, drawing on over 30 years of innovation and borrowing some tricks from previous models.

Check out the new CLASSIC 8ss, a cool self-powered studio monitor perfect for music makers.

It rocks a one-inch soft dome tweeter and an 8" Glass Aramid Woofer for crisp sound. You get a total of 100 watts of power, with 75 watts for the woofer and 25 watts for the tweeter. By default, it's set to a flat frequency for precise listening and mixing, but you can also kick in the +2 dB KRK Bass Boost for some extra oomph.

It's like having your own signature monitor, just like Scott Storch with his famous shades! The new KRK Scott Storch CLASSIC 8ss Studio Monitors are available now, and retail at $299 per speaker. Please visit an authorized KRK dealer or www.krkmusic.com for more information.
