Mackie celebrates its birthday with the 20 Years Running Contest 27/05/09
It's been 20 years since Mackie first introduced the CR-1604 and they are celebrating that anniversary with a competition. Here's all the details directly from their press release...
Over the course of two decades, Mackie has released countless innovative products that have irrevocably shaped the music industry. Mackie wants to celebrate the past 20 years by asking Mackoids to submit their Mackie stories and photos or Mackie video.
"We want to hear about your beer-drenched VLZ Pro that still works; the time you dropped your SRM450 off a building by accident and it powered up for your gig the same night; your original CR-1604 you still use religiously; your world-record for the largest collection of Mackie vintage swag; your Running Man tattoo that you had to get to show your devotion for Mackie," said Shaunna Thompson Mackie media and pr manager. "Whatever your story, funny or heartfelt, long or short, old school or new school... we want to hear it. Send in a photo too. If you really want to wow us, create a video on You Tube."
The Mackoid with the best Mackie story, based on creativity, originality, composition and overall impression, will be featured in a Mackie e-newsletter, have their own feature story on the Mackie website and be the lucky winner of a new Mackie HD Live Sound System comprised of a pair of Mackie's New HD1531 High-Definition Powered Loudspeakers and a 1604-VLZ3 Compact Mixer. Prize value at $4,000. More information:
