Vintage King is offering mix engineers the opportunity to show off their skills in the studio and potentially bring home a pair of Barefoot Sound Footprint 01 monitors. To enter our Spring Mix Contest, you’ll choose from one of five tracks, create your ideal mix and submit an MP3 to be judged against entries from your peers.
How It Works
We’re teaming up with five masters of engineering and production who will be acting as judges and offering up source files for contestants to work with. Contestants will be able to select the track of the judge they would like to mix or remix and then hit the studio to complete their project. Vintage King’s team of in-house engineers will select the top five entries from each song category and share these with our celebrity judges. Each celebrity judge will listen to the final tracks in their category and select one entry as the grand prize winner.
Win A Pair of Barefoot Sound Footprint 01 Monitors
We will be awarding a pair of Barefoot Sound Footprint 01 Monitors to the engineers whose tracks are selected best overall in each category of the Spring Mix Contest. The Footprint 01 is Barefoot Sound’s most compact monitor, while still featuring the trademark technology that has made the brand a go-to in the studio world. These near-field monitors offer Dual-Force™ technology opposing subwoofers, dual ring radiator tweeter and Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation™ technology.

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.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
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.
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.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
