Since his days growing up in Los Angeles, California, Anthony Erwin has always had an affinity for two things, cars and music. He credits his father’s workshop as the inspiration for his love of automobiles, and as for music, it all starts with his grandfather.

“Looking back on my childhood, I had a very deep emotional connection with music,” Anthony states. “I realized how impactful it was to my overall well-being and couldn’t get enough of it. My grandfather is also a musician and has played the guitar for 40+ years, so that played a huge role as well.”

Taken with the hip-hop of Los Angeles (specifically Dr. Dre), Anthony began to uncover the layers of creating his own musical works. What he found was a process that made his brain go “crazy” in the best way possible. The art of crafting beats, or “mini-scores” as Anthony calls them, and mixing his own productions was something that just made sense to him.

In the time since he started creating his own music, Anthony began working in music/pro audio retail, working his way up from Sales Associate to Customer Service Manager. He made the leap to Vintage King Audio in February 2018 and has been a member of the Vintage King Los Angeles sales team ever since.

“Being able to help like-minded individuals is always an awesome opportunity,” says Anthony about why he loves working at Vintage King Audio. “Now add in awesome gear and music… What isn’t there to love about this place?!”

Q & A

What piece of gear changed how people work the most?
Avid Pro Tools has provided us the ability to manipulate audio at a moment's notice in almost any manner that our brains or hearts desire.

What record do you point to as an example of perfect music production?
Justin Timberlake’s Future Sex/Love Sounds. Timbaland and Danja laid the foundation for arguably the greatest produced album ever. Danja’s funk meeting Tim’s odd-ball craziness created beds of musical awesomesomness, plus the Benjamin Wright Orchestra X-factor just takes it over the top.

What is the most important piece of recording or production advice you've ever received?
Knowing when enough is enough. Being that we have endless amounts of tools, knowing when you’ve done your duty and not over-exerting is key.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
