TransAudio Group to Distribute Bock Audio

TransAudio Group, is happy to announce that it will be the U.S. distributor and marketer for Bock Audio, microphone guru David Bock’s newly created company. This new Southern California company is hand building high-end custom microphones for the recording industry. Bock Audio’s purpose is to deliver the highest possible performance and long-term usefulness in new studio microphones.

Owing to David Bock’s long history and great renown in the pro audio and audiophile communities, Bock Audio is as close to being a legend, at its very inception, as any company could hope to be. It is a fitting addition to TransAudio already prestigious roster.

David Bock is arguably the most experienced builder and modifier of large diaphragm tube mics in world and is one of very few microphone specialists who really understands how the materials, design, and build of vintage microphones give them their sought-after sounds. Bock has put that knowledge to extensive use, customizing microphones for the industry’s top recording engineers to give them particular sound characteristics. He cut his teeth as a tech at some of the most prestigious studios in the world, including the Hit Factory, Ocean Way, and Hyde Street, before co-founding and then running Soundelux Microphones from 1996 to 2006.

In 2007, David formed Bock Audio to carry on his personal designs developed over the past ten years. TransAudio Group’s founder, Brad Lunde, recognized David Bock’s unique ability to engineer to a “sound.” “Most modern microphone manufacturers simply build a mic and then try to sell its sound, however that sound may turn out. In stark contrast, David Bock first finds out what sound characteristics people want, then builds a microphone with those characteristics. His rare talent has led many of our industry’s highly regarded engineers and vocalists to depend on David’s microphones for their most important work.”

Bock Audio manufactures three models at present: the 195 (previously known as the U195), the 151 (previously known as the E251C) and the 251 (previously known as the ELUX251). These models were designed by David Bock and continue in production under the Bock Audio brand. All three models are now shipping.

TransAudio Group, founded by industry veteran Brad Lunde, has quickly become the premier U.S. importer/distributor and/or U.S. sales and marketing representative for high-end audio. Success hinges on TransAudio providing dealers and end users with a higher standard of product expertise and support far beyond the norm. TransAudio Group’s product lines include A Designs (USA), ATC (U.K), Daking (USA), Digital Audio Denmark (Denmark), Drawmer (UK), Enhanced Audio (Ireland), George Massenburg Labs (USA), Heil
Sound (USA), Pauly (Germany), Sabra Som (Brazil), and SoundField (UK).
