Burbank, CAâ€¦ Mojave Audio, recognized as a leading manufacturer of professional studio microphones, has added two new retail outlets. The award winning microphones are now available at www.musiciansfriend.com and www.guitarcenter.com. The agreementâ€”completed in January 2009â€”will make it easier than ever for audio professionals and enthusiasts to readily purchase some of the industryâ€™s most highly respected recording and performance tools.
â€œMusicians Friend is a solid company that has progressed dramatically since its inception as a retailer with first rate service and support,â€? says Cathy Kelly, VP of sales and marketing at Mojave Audio. â€œWe anticipate their partnership with Mojave microphones will be of great benefit to their established customer base as well as expanding Mojaveâ€™s reputation and presence in the growing online pro audio market.â€?
The new agreement with Musicianâ€™s Friend calls for the company to carry Mojave Audioâ€™s popular award winning MA-Series models. All microphones from Mojave Audio carry the distinction of being designed by David Royer, who is well-known for his devotion to capturing the most subtle nuances of music and sound through electronic design. Best known for his ribbon microphone designs with Royer Labs, which have won two TEC awards, David has been building custom and production gear under the Mojave label since 1995, and has created a number of condenser mics that have become studio staples among a small group of high-end audio engineers including Bob Clearmountain, Mutt Lang, and Sean Beaven.
Dusty Wakeman, President of Mojave Audio, offered an upbeat assessment of the new arrangement with Musicianâ€™s Friend. â€œAs one of the premiere online destinations for musicians and audio professionals when shopping for equipment, Musicianâ€™s Friend consistently provides some the most comprehensive product selections in the industry. Iâ€™m confident all parties involved in this agreement will benefit.â€?
Chris Tso, Musicianâ€™s Friend Director of Merchandising â€“ Technology Products, was equally enthusiastic about becoming an authorized dealer for Mojave Audio. â€œMusician’s Friend is proud to offer Mojave Audio products to our discerning and valued customers. Well known to audio professionals, their products enhance the experience of music creation and production.â€?
