Peter @ A Designs = class "A" dude...

I had to mention the excellent treatment I have experienced dealing w/Peter @ A Designs.

I had a very minor problem with one of his units...just the mute switch on an Atty...I use mine between my d/a and my monitors so I use the mute switch a lot and it went out...no big deal.

I don't even wanna say what Peter did because it was so outgoing...let's just say I feel like I got superstar treatment because he went WAY above and beyond to make sure I was happy...

Mark Warren turned me on to his Pacifica about a year and a half ago before all the hype on here...I was pretty blown away and had to get one for myself and have loved it since.

I have dealt w/other small companies being both a guitar player who likes botique gear AND an engineer who like toys...it's rare to meet people like this (Peter) who are so cool...makes me like the gear even more.

I am just in a good mood...I don't work for A Designs or anything of course...I just thought you guys should know what these people are like.

This one of the big reasons I love dealing with small companies. Aside from the fact that the stuff usually sounds great, when you are dealing with a small pro audio, amp or musical instrument company (even pro audio dealers), there is usually a real passion and care for the product and customer that tend to be lost with lots of the bigger companies.

Yup, Peter is definitely a real person and a good one at that. It's nice dealing directly with the people who make the product. They have the passion to make things right. It also helps that he has kickass products!

I recently had a problem with the DI on a preamp and I am very happy with the service that Peter provided when I emailed him with the problem. I ran into the problem on a Sunday afternoon and I sent an email not really expecting a response till sometime Monday. He surprised me by responding later that day and we shot a few emails back and forth with some questions and things to try and I shipped the preamp off Monday morning. I have some other A-designs products that I'd like to get when the finances allow.

What can I say? You have to give credit where credit is due! Peter is a great guy that makes awesome gear and has your back 200% if anything ever goes wrong with any of his products! He answers his phone and is willing to take the time to answer questions without making you feel like you are bothering him. Thumbs up to Gator as well.....cool guy, good vibe and excellent communication!

He was a super straight up guy with me as well. He walked me through a few of his mikes and how they sounded on the Pacifica. I should be a little angry with him, b/c right after his demo, I dropped for a Pacifica and a Royer 121! But he's too nice a guy for that.
