Ever since Event Electronics was formed, the studio monitor manufacturer and Australia-based RØDE Microphones has had a friendly relationship, which just got friendlier with the recent acquisition. RØDE has a distribution and service center in Torrance, Calif., headed by Mark Ludmer, who is now also CEO of Event.

According to RØDE president Peter Freedman, “Event is a long-established and very well-respected brand with a strong domestic and international sales program. We see a great deal of synergy in this union and I am excited about the potential for expansion of the line.

Event will remain based in Carpinteria, Calif.
