APRIL 12 I BLUE MICROPHONES I ACQUISITION
Blue Takes on
Blue Microphones has acquired the assets of Summit Audio. With the acquisition, Summit Audio’s production, sales and support will continue under the ownership of Blue Microphones.
Blue will be expanding the availability of Summit Audio products through improved supply and distribution, in addition to continuing new product development under the Summit brand.
"Acquiring Summit was a natural next step for Blue Microphones 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 pre-amps 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."
Blue Microphones has retained former Summit President Erik Papp as the head of business development for Blue’s signal processing division.
"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," Papp said.
Blue Microphones will continue the production of all current Summit product lines under the Summit name.
