Korg USA Inc. acquired Spector Bass Co. According to Korg, it plans to reinforce Spector’s legacy with new products, a creative rebranding project and exceptional global sales support, as well as focusing on expanding Spector’s reach into untapped markets with new distribution partners around the world.
“We’ve been the distributor for four years and we knew the history and potential of this iconic brand. We also knew we could drive the future growth and expansion of the brand as an owner. Once Stuart Spector decided the time was right to entrust us with the operation of his legacy brand, we worked out the acquisition and are now proud owners,” said Joe Castronovo, president of Korg USA.
Korg USA, based in New York, is now the worldwide headquarters for Spector basses. All global sales, marketing, product design, logistics and financial operations will be based out of Korg’s office. Spector’s USA custom shop will remain in Woodstock, N.Y., where it has been making custom Spector basses for 27 years.
“When the time came to transition to the next phase of life for the Spector brand, choosing Korg USA was an emotional and simple decision all at once. With the team in place at Korg USA, we are leaving the Spector brand in the best of hands and I am excited to see what the future holds,” stated Specter bass company founder Stuart Spector.
