JESSUP, MARYLAND – FEBRUARY 2009: API announces that Dale Pro Audio is now an official dealer of both, API and Arsenal Audio by API, product lines. With over fifty years in business, a staff with hundreds of combined years of experience in the pro audio industry, and a Walters-Storyk-designed showroom, Dale Pro Audio is Manhattan’s premier pro audio retailer. It sells to broadcasters, post-production studios, recording studios, and installed-sound contractors throughout New York and the country.
“API represents one of the greatest values in the industry today and will form the cornerstone of our outboard sales,” said Ken Patnaude, vice president of sales and marketing for Dale. “Put simply, our customers want gear that sounds fantastic, that will last a long, long time, and that is priced fairly. All are so true of API products. Our customers will especially appreciate the affordable Arsenal Audio by API products and API’s 500-series modules in these tough economic times.”
“Buying gear from Dale is a unique experience, and we’re happy that API will now have a strong presence in their showrooms,” said Dan Zimbelman, director of sales for API. “It’s easy to confuse Dale for a functioning studio. They don’t sell guitars, keyboards or drums, so there’s no music store vibe. The ‘showroom’ is split between four Walter-Storyk-designed ‘studios,’ one of which allows customers to easily compare outboard gear with input from knowledgeable sales staff who don’t work on commission. If that weren’t enough, they have a relaxed loaner policy so that users can test drive gear in their own studio!”
ABOUT API API remains the leader in analog recording gear, with the Vision surround production, Legacy series, and 1608 recording consoles, and the classic line of modular signal processing equipment.
