Blue Microphones Acquires Assets of Summit Audio Inc

On April 6, Blue Microphones, which designs and produces an extensive line of microphones and recording tools for audio professionals, musicians and consumers, announced the acquisition of assets of Summit Audio Inc. The production, sales and support of Summit products will continue under Blue ownership.

Summit Audio Inc is a manufacturer of high-end signal processors and microphone preamps. Blue Microphones will expand the availability of Summit Audio products through improved supply and distribution. New product development will continue under the Summit brand.

“Acquiring Summit was a natural next step for Blue as we continue to grow and expand out studio and live microphone lines,” says John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones.

“Now, supplemented with Summit’s high-quality mic preamps and signal processors, we can bring a more complete offering to market and further our mission to deliver the highest quality sound to our customers.”

Blue Microphones has former Summit President, Erik Papp, as the head of business development for Blue’s signal processing division. Papp says, “With Blue’s exceptional growth and ability to extend Summit’s legacy through new product development and enhanced distribution, I can’t think of a better place for Summit Audio to be now and in the future.”

All current Summit product lines will continue production under Blue Microphones, and stay under the Summit name. Customer support, marketing, and sales will be resourced from the Blue Microphones team. Effective immediately, orders for Summit Audio products can be directed to, as Blue has initiated efforts to increase product supply moving forward.
