New Name, New Site, Otherwise the Same!

In the beginning, there was Old Forge Studio – a small, old school recording studio using ribbon mics, tube mic preamps and tape to make minimalist, near-live recordings of small, acoustic ensembles. (Its original location was, in fact, an old Forge building, but that’s another story.)

Then Old Forge Studio added two channel audio to the mix and relocated to larger digs and all was well.

Then I added an import/Distribution wing and things started to get a bit complicated, so I created Old Forge Distribution to separate that part of the business and clarify things, in the process creating the Old Forge Distribution web site. That’s where you can find out about U.S. distribution of the Wand tone arms and new turntable, plus Pureaudio electronics.

Since then it has become clear that people expect to see Audio, Hi-Fi or Sound in an audio store’s name, and without it they become confused or fail to recognize it as such in the first place . . .

Which brings us here: A third web site called Old Forge Audio to cover the doings at the retail shop. The Old Forge Studio site will remain, but shift its focus to reflect what’s happening in the recording studio, where it all started. I will migrate the retail audio stuff to this site over time and hopefully this will all be clear and understandable on its face. We’ll see!

After 15 years doing audio shows and marketing for Audio Note, UK, I took a year off, intending to establish a recording studio dedicated to making natural, minimally processed recordings of acoustic instruments playing jazz, folk, blues, bluegrass and classical music. Somewhere along the way I borrowed a pair of Auditorium 755 speakers and a Shindo pre-amp and power amp from Jonathan Halpern of Tone Imports. Quick as you can say, "Bob's your uncle!", I had become an audio retailer, using Old Forge Studio as a dual purpose space. It's all very exciting and more than a bit crazy . . .
