The Mackie and Ampeg brands are highly regarded, and I’m very honored to represent them in APAC, one of the most vibrant MI and Pro Audio markets in the world.”
“During my 30 years in the industry, I have been surrounded by lots of demo gear, but when it came time to lay down my own hard-earned money, I chose Mackie for its quality,” said Lewis. “I’m honored to be working with such an innovative company.”
