It's that time of year again, when gear announcements are a plenty and the audio world can't wait to see what happens next at the 137th edition of the AES Convention. With AES 2014 taking place in Los Angeles, it's fitting that Vintage King's flagship store will serve as home base to some of the week's most exciting events.
To help make life easier on convention-goers, Vintage King will be running a shuttle service from the Los Angeles Convention Center to Vintage King Los Angeles. Located only two miles away from the convention floor, your trip to our LA store is as simple as signing up for the AVID
Stereo Bus at our booth (#1025).
With daily special events, featuring Telefunken
, Universal Audio
, Gearslutz and more, make sure that you take the time to ride the bus out to Vintage King Los Angeles. In addition to meeting the makers and checking out new gear, you'll be able to see our unique audio store setup featuring the best recording consoles, 500 Series, outboard equipment, monitors, guitars, effects pedals and more.
