This past August, the music industry lost a remarkable and innovative pioneer, Aspen Pittman. Aspen Pittman’s designs have been coveted by legendary musicians and record producers for nearly 40 years. His best selling Tube Amp Book has sold over 140,000 copies. He has designed dozens of tube guitar amps, stage and studio microphones, and has designed and built over a dozen unique electron vacuum tubes from scratch. Aspen’s inventions, such as the Speaker Emulator, changed the way we record guitar, and his Center Point Stereo technology will forever change the way we produce live music. Aspen’s audio designs have earned multiple utility patents both in the USA and around the world, and have garnered top awards in multiple fields including the prestigious TEC award for best microphone design. Tonight we take a look at Aspen's life and his groundbreaking designs. Joining me is Loni Spector, creator of the Amp Show and the Guitar Pedal Expo, and a close personal friend of Aspen. Also joining me is guitar and amp tech Donald Butler and Paul "Fingers" Patronete, both of whom had worked with Aspen. It's a night of some truly groundbreaking innovations, and insight into one extraordinary man!
