Korg USA has purchased Darkglass Electronics. Korg already acts as Darkglass’ distributor in North America, and has now purchased the company for an undisclosed amount.
“This acquisition is aligned with our strategy to position Korg USA as a leader in the bass gear category,” said Korg USA President Joe Castronovo.
“We have developed a deep admiration for the brand’s cutting-edge reputation of being innovative and player-centric. Korg USA is proud to invest in the future of Darkglass, and we are excited to share their products with the music community, alongside our other respected brands.”
“As a bassist, I started Darkglass to engineer the products I always dreamed of having. Shortly after, the dream grew to become a top player in the bass segment,” added Darkglass CEO Douglas Castro.
“Having worked with Korg USA for many years and seeing first-hand their incredible work empowering the brands that have joined their group, I do not doubt that they will help fulfill all of these ambitions and beyond. As a former owner and now future user, I am incredibly excited to see the next chapter in the Darkglass story – I am sure that the best is yet to come.”
More information will be available soon about what this means.
