Philadelphia native Don Spacht became a music lover thanks in part to his father’s encouragement. The senior Spacht (who is a bluegrass banjo picker) required his kids to take up piano, which Don eventually traded in for guitar. The path opened up by Don’s love of music would ultimately lead to him to studying audio production at Ithaca College.

“I went to get a degree in Television & Radio, originally thinking that I might like to work at a radio station,” Don says. “After getting a taste of Pro Tools and audio production from the broadcasting side, I quickly realized that the college’s music department had much cooler equipment.”

Interaction with the recording studios at Ithaca influenced Don to begin working in the pro audio industry on the manufacturing side. He has spent time at both Apogee Electronics and Antelope Audio, working to see through the brands’ vision for products and helping to launch the Ensemble Thunderbolt, Symphony I/O MKII, and Edge Modeling Microphones.

While working with Vintage King at Apogee and Antelope, Don learned first hand about how the pro audio retailer operated. When he decided to make a career change in mid-2019, he linked up with Vintage King and became the company’s Western Sales Manager.

“Vintage King is a preferred dealer for both of the brands I worked for, and by doing business from the vendor side, I got to know and respect their mission and unbeatable customer service,” Don says.”Having worked on 'all sides' of shopping for pro audio gear, I hope to bring a uniquely holistic perspective to my position at Vintage King.”

As the Western Sales Manager, Don is working hard to make sure that Vintage King’s Audio Consultants have the tools they need to best serve their customers. Given his history as a retail salesperson, manufacturer representative, and a pro audio customer, we know that Don will get the job done right every single time.

Q & A

What record do you point to as an example of perfect music production? Why?
Queen’s A Night at the Opera, which is such an obvious choice I probably don’t need to justify it. And for a more modern pick, I’ll go with Demon Days by Gorillaz. It’s super cohesive despite the mishmash of contributors and production styles, and I’ve listened to it about a zillion times.

What is the most important piece of recording or production advice you've ever received?
Get it right at the source, or as some people say it, “garbage in, garbage out.” Seems to apply pretty well outside of recording and production, too.

What else are you interested in, besides music?
I do hot yoga three or four times per week. I tried it for the first time with my wife a few years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite hobbies. Also, I love to travel and take my dog on long walks.

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.
