How did EarCandy get started and what got you interested in building gear?
I started playing piano when I was four, and I was doing piano recitals in front of 2,000 people when I was six. I babysat for this lady who couldn’t pay me so she gave me her ex-husband’s Stratocaster and it was love at first sight. After that, nothing else mattered but good grades. I had to have good grades or my dad would yank the guitar. He was a brilliant man, an E-9 Master Chief in the US Navy, a math genius and a very skilled wood worker by hobby. He had me out in the wood shop as soon as I could walk, I was sanding cabinets and shelves. When he passed away he left me all of his wood working tools, which a few are still used in the shop to this very day.
Who's ready for Winter NAMM 2016? It's going to be another great show, and we have some very talented artists hanging out with us this year. If you'll be attending the show, be sure to stop by and say hello and hear the tone clinics these guys will be putting on.
In 1966 Bob Gault founded what was to become the world’s largest loudspeaker manufacturing company after working as an engineer for Magnavox and CTS (Chicago Telephone Supply). Gault started Eminence building only three 18” speakers per day, based on a commitment from Ampeg’s Everett Hull. Under the leadership of Gault and most recently his son, Rob, the company’s capacity grew to over 10,000 speakers per day, employing nearly 200 people.
Eminence has teamed up with Nashville session artist and Rascal Flatts sideman Travis Toy to create a 300 watt, ultra-lightweight signature pedal steel guitar speaker.
