Gotham Audio Resurrected

Nazareth, PA - The new Gotham Audio LLC marks the return of the famed Gotham Audio name, distinctive Gotham logo, and its tradition of professionalism and excellence to the American audio market. Founded in November 2004, the company is headed by pro audio industry veterans Lewis Frisch and Franz Ammann.

Gotham Audio cables became familiar to U.S. users of Neumann microphones from the mid-1970s through the early 1990s. When Gotham's founder, Stephen Temmer, retired in 1985, he transferred the sales rights for Gotham cables to his Swiss subsidiary, Gotham AG, headed by Franz Ammann, who now also serves as CEO of Gotham Audio LLC.

With the death of Temmer and dissolution of Gotham Audio in 1992, distribution of Gotham Audio cables in the U.S. passed to a succession of independent distributors and became increasingly problematic.

Lewis Frisch and Franz Ammann established Gotham Audio LLC in November 2004 to ensure ready availability, reliable pricing and the highest level of personal service to clients in North America. The new company opened its Pennsylvania warehouse in January 2005 and Gotham Audio LLC now stocks a complete selection of both bulk Gotham cable and terminated Gotham mic cable assemblies for immediate shipment to customers in the U.S. and Canada.
