  1. Help Vintage King Say #ThankYouRupert With Exclusive Rupert Neve Pin

    Help Vintage King Say #ThankYouRupert With Exclusive Rupert Neve Pin
    Rupert Neve’s legacy of kindness will live on as long as his important contributions to the recording studio. In honor of what would have been his 95th birthday, Vintage King and Rupert Neve Designs are launching the #ThankYouRupert campaign. We will be randomly giving away exclusive pins in hopes of inspiring others to do great things in Rupert's name. We ask that if you receive a pin, you pay it forward. In its simplest form, paying it forward means to pass on an act of kindness to someone else. This could mean you make a charitable donation to a worthwhile organization or volunteer your time to give back to others. You can even use your skills in the studio to mentor an up-and-coming engineer or artist. Continue reading →
