Anybody Heard Rumors That Mackie Is Shutting The Doors?

Postby Bant's Bluz » Sun Jan 25, 2009 11:13 am

I saw a post on the Acoustic Guitar Forum that Mackie is closing down! Anyone heard anything about that? I'm bummed caused I have an order in for one of their compact mixers that Grady recommended. There might be something to this as the mixer is back ordered until at least May

I really don't think Mackie is going out of business.
I spent a lot of time omn the phone with Mackie about a week or so ago and when I told them about some of the Mackie products I own, the guy said "Yes, and we're still servicing those products all these years later. We'll still be servicing the product you just bought ten years from now."

So, I doubt they're going out of business.

You can call them at (800) 898-3211 during business hours (7 a.m.-5 p.m. M-F, Pacific Time)

I really don't know any facts about Mackie or Ampeg. I just heard the parent company "Loud Ind." is having financial problems & they had moved most of their production facilities to Vietnam. Maybe that's where the rumors are. Just what I heard.
