This is last week's news, but I forgot to post about it. It's important because Gibson had bought a few other companies, including KRK and Stanton. So right now no one knows what will happen with all of their products. I'm thinking of all the beatmakers that own a pair of KRK monitors... Shure announced they'll stop making needles. This sucks. The 447's are the best so I'll have to grab a few more before they're gone. Apparently even though vinyl sales are up, the people buying that vinyl are more collectors than scratch DJ's. They also cut off the Cakewalk brand, which I wasn't happy about either because I've been using their DAW since 97! But now Cakewalk is being offered free from another company. So this is a heads up to anyone that is thinking of buying any products from those companies. You can see the list of Gibson-owned companies here.
