We really enjoy helping our customers decide how to to get great sound from their systems, how to improve their room acoustics, and how to tailor a fine-looking installation to fit their decor. Our advice is not limited to our own products and we cover the spectrum of audiophile/videophile concerns: improving modest office set-ups, re-configuring family-friendly entertainment systems and rooms, refining all-out dedicated purist listening rooms, and even designing stunning system installations for architectural showplaces.
Eldon and Pierre happily spend hours advising customers where to best start their upgrade quest, which products and upgrades will give their system the most bang-for-the-buck, and how to solve logistic problems. Our passion for value and good sound, combined with 25 years of cutting edge audio research and extensive first-hand experience with the full range of high end components, allow us to offer uniquely creative solutions and cost-conscious advice on how to most effectively upgrade any system from $1500 to $300,000.
Ben and Crist, the Amish craftsmen who hand-make all of our maple products, add another invaluable dimension to Mapleshades customer service. Not only do they both take great Old World pride in the quality of work they provide to our customers, they love the challenge of creating custom versions of platforms, speaker stands, and SAMSON-type racks. This gives us the flexibility to offer maple platforms and speaker stands for customers with unusually sized components or speakersor with unusual space and shape requirements for racks. They have built non-rectangular platforms, speaker stands up to 5 feet and racks up to 9 feet tall, multi-bay racks, racks with staggered shelf heights and overhanging shelves.
And where our handsome, clear lacquer finish doesnt fit in with room dcor, we offer custom options of cherry, rosewood or black. Coloring maple is surprisingly tricky; standard wood stains give very mixed results. So we hired a finishing specialist to work with Ben to develop for us special toned-lacquer blends with a five-step finish, all tailored to the unique problems of staining maple. And the results are stunning! The Natural Cherry matches wonderfully with many warmer golden-hued finishes and doesnt obscure the distinctive grain of our maple. Deep Rosewood is a rich, dark, beautifully reddish finish. Our Semi-Gloss Black has a fine satin sheen.
