Experience the Difference
I recently bought a really good ping-pong table. The marvelous thing about it is its absolute perfection. First of all, it was packaged by a magician. Everything fit into two flat boxes and was perfectly protected. Each piece was without blemish, no marks on the table surface, everything went together perfectly, the parts were all clearly marked and organized, and even the assembly instructions were simple and clear. The whole experience was an all-too-rare treat.
It’s a company that’s been in business for a very long time, and it shows. There’s something to be said for people with a great deal of experience. They say it takes 10,000 hours at something to become an expert, and personally, I think it’s worth the effort.
This thought came up recently at a big band recording session we were having here. All of the players involved were way beyond the 10,000-hour expert mark, and it really made the difference in both the ease of the session and the quality of the results. It definitely pays to work with the best.
Omnimusic has been around for over 30 years now. That’s a LOT more than 10,000 hours. We’d like to think it shows in the way we produce our music and help our customers.
There’s much more I could say on this, but I’ve got about 9,000 hours of table tennis to play.
