Audio-Technica recently renewed its sponsorship of music education charity Notes for Notes, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth with completely FREE access to music instruments, instruction and recording studio environments so that music may become a profoundly positive experience in their lives. Audio-Technica has provided many of the Notes for Notes locations with microphones and headphones, including the AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone, PRO 63 Cardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone, BP40 Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone, and ATH-M20x, ATH-M30x, ATH-M40x and ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones. As part of the sponsorship renewal, Roxanne Ricks, Audio-Technica U.S. artist relations manager and events specialist, recently attended a gala event in Detroit, marking the opening of a new Notes for Notes Studio in the city. Country artist and Michigan native Frankie Ballard was a featured guest, and Notes for Notes presented Audio-Technica with a Diamond Record plaque. “It was an honor to be at this event,” stated Ricks, “and an even bigger honor to represent Audio-Technica as we continue to pledge our support for this wonderful organization.” Philip Gilley, Notes for Notes CEO/co-founder, stated, “We had the pleasure of being introduced to the wonderful Audio-Technica family thanks to legendary engineer (and Notes for Notes Advisory Board Member) Alan Parsons. We are so honored to have the support of such a legendary company providing our studios and members with the highest in microphone and monitoring quality. Thanks to Audio-Technica, we can hear the future.” Audio-Technica Notes for Notes Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!
