The Airtel Plaza hotel in Van Nuys, Calif., hosted the official introduction of Pete's Place, a new division of A-Designs Audio. Pete's Place is a consortium of boutique gear manufacturers, designers, respected sound engineers and professional artists who collaborate in the development of esoteric and handcrafted audio equipment.

David Pearlman of Pearlman microphones; recording engineer Dylan Dresdow; Gator of A-Designs Audio; recording engineer Ronan Chris Murphy; Lisa Montessi, president of Pete’s Place; recording engineer Tony Shepperd: pro audio designer Jon Erickson; and Jule Potter of Jule Amps

By fostering an innovative spirit and the free exchange of ideas, president Lisa Montessi hopes that Pete's Place can “help create a path to the pro audio marketplace by eliminating the many obstacles — such as insufficient financial backing and lack of manufacturing experience — modern gear designers face in the fulfillment of their creative vision.”

New products in the Pete's Place line so far include the TM-LE large-diaphragm tube microphone, RCM-2R tube dual-spring reverb, B-REDDI tube bass amplifier and the Mark VIII mixer, which accepts 500 Series-compatible modules.
