Born and raised in New Jersey, Stephen Handy fell in love with music at an early age when he picked up the French horn in grade school. Inspired by artists such as Tame Impala, Yussef Dayes, and Tom Misch, Stephen strives to create music that transports you to another world. "A lot of what I like about these artists are the sonic spaces they put you in. As someone who both creates and consumes music, there's so much to appreciate about them and the choices they make."

In college, Stephen discovered his passion for the recording arts and after graduating with a degree in sound recording, he began his career as an audio engineer, working in recording studios all across the country, including the renowned Blackbird Studios in Nashville. "My approach to music making is free flowing. Often I find myself making the best music when I can get in the room with some friends and capture that moment."

A firm believer that "less is more," Stephen is a pro at crafting deep soundscapes with lush sonic textures — whether he's tracking guitar on a small desktop interface or dialing in his trusty AMS RMX16 reverb in the studio.

Q & A

What is the most inspiring part of the recording process for you?
The most inspiring part of the recording process is seeing the end result. In my experience as an engineer, my favorite moments were seeing the artist's face fill with joy as they hear the finished product.

What record do you point to as an example of perfect music production? Why?
In terms of perfect production, I look towards Tame Impala. His emphasis on the quality of the sounds he records and produces are second to none in modern music. Not to mention how great the songwriting is. 'Currents' is a fantastic example of this.

What else are you interested in, besides music?
Besides music, I really enjoy skateboarding, photography, video games, sneakers and sports!

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.

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.
