Dan Hacker hails from the vibrant Detroit area, where his passion for music ignited and grew from a young age. Dan's career highlights span over a decade of touring and recording in the realm of dance music, funk, and hip-hop production. He's graced major stages like Red Rocks, Electric Forest, and Bonnaroo, and contributed to songs with millions of streams. This wealth and versatility of experience uniquely equips him to assist musicians and producers in honing their unique sound.

A true music maker, Dan's journey started with a diverse musical upbringing, from Motown to hip-hop and house / techno to neo-soul. Learning piano and guitar paved the way for his introduction to producing in Ableton Live, his homebase DAW of 10+ years. He favors his Fender Jazzmaster and Takamine Acoustic for their versatile tones, with other studio essentials including a UAD Apollo 8p, Ableton Push 2, Shure SM7B, Lab Series L5 Guitar Amp, Dave Smith Prophet 6, and more.

His musical influences encompass a ridiculously wide array of artists including Bon Iver, Frank Ocean, Radiohead, Daft Punk, and more. Albums like "In Rainbows", "Blonde", and "Donuts" have profoundly shaped his creative approach.

At Vintage King, Dan's enthusiasm for sharing his musical expertise shines. Guided by his belief that the right gear can transform a concept into a masterpiece, he's dedicated to providing a tailored experience that helps fellow creatives unlock their full potential.

What hobbies do you enjoy?
I am a huge nerd! I love Dungeons & Dragons, Magic the Gathering, video games, movies / TV of all kinds, reading comics and novels, and researching every new production technique and gear review I can sink my teeth into. Recently, I started going to the gym multiple days a week, which has done wonders for my mental and physical wellness!

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!

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.
