Røde Microphones Buys Event Electronics

Published: Sun June 04, 2006  News Feed

The Australian based microphone manufacturer, Røde, has acquired California-based Event Electronics, makers of professional studio monitors. Event will remain based in Carpinteria, CA.

"Event is a long established and very well respected brand with a strong domestic and international sales program. We see a great deal of synergy in this union and I am excited about the potential for expansion of the line," said Peter Freedman, president of Røde Microphones.

Røde employs 80 people at a high-tech plant in Sydney, Australia. They have a dedicated distribution and service center located in Torrance, CA which is headed by Mark Ludmer, an industry veteran with over 20 years experience in the music technology industry. Ludmer also takes on the role of CEO of Event.

Røde has been friendly with Event since the company was formed, with Event being instrumental in launching Røde on the U.S. market. There has, and continues to be a strong personal relationship between the company principals.

"I love speaker technology," said Freedman. "I'm fascinated by that sector and always wanted to get involved. I can now play with both ends of the transducer spectrum. I've got the 'In and the Out'."
