As many of you have seen over the last few years, Loud Technologies (parent of Mackie and Tapco) has been spinning off different parts of its business. Today it was EAW. Other recent sell offs include Martin Audio and Ampeg. Earlier sell offs included Alvarez Guitars and they once had Crate amps but shuttered that as well as a couple of others. It will be interesting to see if they can resurrect their former greatness with a more focused company.
