I just learned that Aspen Pittman passed away.

Here's the news story: https://www.hometownstation.com/san...-industry-innovator-aspen-pittman-288576

Aspen is best known as the founder of Groove Tubes, and the author of The Tube Amp Book, although his influence on the pro audio industry goes well beyond that.

I did not know him well, but always enjoyed speaking with him at NAMM. He was extraordinarily knowledgeable about microphones, and about the industry. When I last spoke with him, which sadly for me was a couple years ago, he was excited to be building up his "Aspen's Place" studio. His enthusiasm for audio was inspirational, as was his business savvy. I will miss him.

Here's a nice interview and studio tour, from Warren Huart's channel on Youtube:

RIP AP
discussed at length for almost 2 weeks now over at Keyboard Corner

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.
