My guest today is Derek Bargaehr Chief Everything Officer of Vanguard Audio Labs. Co-Founded with Ken Avant, Vanguard's goal is to make fantastic-sounding, original microphones & audio gear that's within the financial reach of the everyman musician. Their V13 tube microphone has been used on a number of hit records by Grammy-winning engineers and artists.
Derek began burning himself with a soldering iron and messing up his guitar pedals in high school, eventually working as Director of Operations for Avant Electronics (creators of the Avantone MixCubes) for several years. A freelancing engineer, producer, gear tech, and bassist, Derek received a BA in Commercial Music – Audio Engineering & Music Business from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA.
Vanguard Mics have gotten some great praise from engineers like Steve Genowick, Ray Kennedy, and Bob Bullock to name just a few and are seriously affordable super cool looking mics that will make you wish you had one for a hood ornament too!
