Brian Gross got started in music at a young age, playing a plethora of instruments including bass guitar, sax, and synthesizer. While attending a summer camp for jazz band, twelve-year-old Brian was first introduced to the world of recording.

"We went into a studio to record the band, and I was fascinated by mic technique and Pro Tools from day one," says Brian.

In the time since, Brian has evolved his sonic palette further towards jazz, especially artists that push the boundaries of the genre. Brian sees the studio as a place to get wildly creative and some of his current favorites, Thundercat and Snarky Puppy, do just that.

"I love jazz musicians who blend electronic elements into their music," Brian says. "It's my favorite part of the recording process, getting wild and making some noise. I love sitting down on the floor playing with some great sounding toys."

We're excited to have Brian as a part of the Vintage King family and allow him to share his impressive knowledge of gear with our clients. He's pretty pumped too. "I get to talk about gear I love with people who have the same passion. What’s not to like?"

Q & A

What piece of gear changed how people work the most?
Akai MPC. Pro tools may have changed the workflow, but the MPC created genres.

What record do you point to as an example of perfect music production? Why?
Daft Punk - “Random Access Memories” This feels like a cop out, but it’s simply one of the best. The production, mix, and songwriting are all top notch.

What is the most important piece of recording or production advice you've ever received?
“Play Stuff” - Marcus Miller. To expand on this, when Marcus solos he has tangible ideas he uses. He stops, thinks about an idea, and runs with it. I think this applies nicely to all areas of production.

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.

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.

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.
