TURBOSOUND Ltd is Born
By 1978 – which is when the official story begins – Tony Andrews had met Tim Isaac and joined forces with John Newsham, a respected sound engineer, to form TURBOSOUND. They began designing, building and renting out their innovative speaker systems.
At the same time, Alan Wick and partner Mark Hardy were running the successful Muscle Music rental company in London. By 1980, market demand was such that they were sub-hiring in most of their equipment – and it was TURBOSOUND’s systems that caught their attention.
By mid-1981, the two companies had done enough business together to realize the potential of a merger; and brought together their respective design and marketing skills to form the TURBOSOUND Group Ltd.
