From the Street:

Jason Dragon:
"We are proud to feature vintage, modern, and virtual API pieces in our studios. API continues to create uncompromising tools which are difficult to match for clarity and tone. Client satisfaction is rarely higher than when we apply API in the mix. What I like best about API gear is the astounding fidelity and straightforward architecture inside and out."

Kraig Tyler:
"We've chosen our API gear because it sounds incredible. I like to work quickly, and API enables me to translate my thoughts into sound in an intuitive manner. The gear is very reliable, and sounds great when applied on all sources. Whether destruction or finesse is required, API allows me to get exactly what I need."

"I use the 560Bs on kick and snare. The 3124+s are perfect for pianos, organs, toms, and overheads. The 512cs work magic with a wide variety of our microphones."
