Robert is one of our very best demo guys, adept at routing anything in the Vintage King Los Angeles showroom to help customers find the perfect signal chain and dial in a great sound. He's a blast to work with in the studio, too, with extensive experience on both sides of the glass. Like most of us, Robert found his passion for music at an early age, but there wasn't any epiphany, per se. "It was no more complicated than being 13 and thinking electric guitars were cool as hell!" He followed up that passion with a formal degree in music and education, maintaining a number of personal projects on the side.

We're psyched to have Robert play an integral part of our Los Angeles team. Directly before joining us at Vintage King, he worked for another LA-based retailer, but was drawn to the passion, experience, and unique vibe of Vintage King Los Angeles. Plus, he's now able to focus on his love for recording systems that hybridize a modern DAW-based workflow with key pieces of analog equipment. Whenever you're looking for a comprehensive shootout, are eager to try out a few new signal chains, or you're wanting to pair the perfect pre with your favorite mic, don't hesitate to call into Vintage King Los Angeles and set up an appointment with Robert. He has a great ear, and a penchant for conjuring up just the right sound you're after.

When not at Vintage King, he's likely working to stay in shape, enjoying some tasty food, playing video games, or taking long walks on the beach.
