Visit to Shure
As many of you know, we have the fine people of Shure taking part in our Digital Sound Reinforcement (DSR) classes. We were kindly invited by Shure's Tim Vear to come visit Shure's offices when we are in Chicago. So now that we are here (OK, Arlington Heights, close enough haha) we took Tim up on his offer. He gave us about a thousand dollars' worth of his "nickel" tour through the wonderful and spacious facility in the city of Niles. A "Shure" highlight of the day was seeing the archival space where the incredibly knowledgeable staff took out vintage Shure products from the '30's and '40s to show us, and give us their historical background.
Thank you to Tim and to all the great and friendly staff at Shure!! We all really appreciated their time.
