Los Angeles, CA (April 6, 2011)–Blue Microphones has acquired the assets of Summit Audio Inc.
Blue plans to expand the supply and distribution of Summit’s high-end signal processors and mic preamps, and will continue all current Summit product lines and new product development under the Summit brand. Customer support, marketing, and sales will be resourced from the Blue Microphones team.
Former Summit President Erik Papp has been retained as head of business development for Blue’s Signal Processing Division. Papp noted, “With Blue‘s exceptional growth and ability to extend Summit’s legacy through new product development and enhanced distribution, I can’t think of a better place for Summit Audio to be now and in the future.”
“Acquiring Summit was a natural next step for Blue as we continue to grow and expand our studio and live microphone lines,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “Now, supplemented with Summit’s high-quality mic preamps and signal processors, we can bring a more complete offering to market and further our mission to deliver the highest-quality sound to our customers.”
