Warm Audio, a popular manufacturer of classic analog recording gear, has granted Hal Leonard distribution of their various products throughout the United States. The announcement came from Bryce Young, Founder and President of Warm Audio, and Brad Smith, VP of MI Products at Hal Leonard.

Founded in 2011, Young started Warm with the goal of building high-end recording products to help aspiring musicians and engineers gain access to fully professional equipment. Over time, Young put together a team of audio experts with a combined experience of over 50 years in the development, manufacturing, marketing and sales of pro audio equipment. The team has introduced over 20 innovative products to the market and have received multiple nominations and awards by renowned industry professionals.

Known as the world’s largest publisher of music education materials, songbooks, and sheet music, Hal Leonard is now also a leading distributor of musical instruments, gear and accessories with a diverse lineup of products. Hal Leonard is adding Warm Audio to a premier roster of audio recording products and accessories, including Avid, Apogee, Blue Microphones, IK Multimedia, and more.

Young said, “We are excited and proud to be distributed by Hal Leonard.  They are a sharp group with a strong pulse on the industry and we are continually impressed with their knowledge of music technology products.  We feel they are a perfect fit to expose Warm Audio’s value to more dealers, musicians and enthusiasts.”

Smith added, “Warm Audio is a super good fit for HL and our network of dealers. Their value-rich pricing and attention to detail in design and manufacturing is well documented. Warm Audio exceeds the customer expectations. We’ve felt they’ve been under-served. We are excited to be in the position to bring this to a wider market and drive more traffic to our accounts.”
