Since 1960, I have been involved with music and audio equipment and I hope you enjoy reading about me. The story starts in my mother’s kitchen.
I was about ten years old and used my mothers cleaning bowls as a drum kit. The drumsticks were heavy knitting needles and worked very well. I spent hours making a horrible noise which was done only when she was at work. The next step was when I ‘borrowed’ my father’s acoustic guitar. The guitar was his pride and joy and kept locked up under his bed. But one day the guitar was left out by mistake and was the start of my musical experience!
At school, I made my first electric guitar (which was a copy of the famous Fender Stratocaster) and formed a school group. The Headmaster on drums, our fitness instructor on rhythm, the drama master playing bass and I played the lead. The music we played was all taken from ‘The Shadows’ and we practiced intently and became very proficient.
After leaving school I served a four-year apprenticeship in electrical and electronic Instrumentation. This gave me an excellent background in the basic understanding of electronics. I formed my own group (as most of us did in those days) and was fortunate to meet and play with some of the great artists who are still with us today. about me
My direction changed and rather than play music, I began to work with live mixing, studio recording, and video production.
I was always able to get a great mix and had the ability to create a musical picture. The positioning and re-positioning of audio equipment in the listening room came naturally to me. I was always ready to help friends set up their systems to paint that musical picture.
Oil and Gas
In 1970 my life changed when I lost the urge to become rich and famous. I joined the Oil and Gas industry which was a tremendous challenge, but at the same time very rewarding – read more
I visited different countries throughout the world and was able to see many beautiful places. My life was very interesting because my business allowed me to keep up with my passion. High-end audio, but little did I realize how this would eventually lead to what I am doing now!
At the beginning of 2015, the oil and gas industry started to slow down which told me the industry wanted a rest. As a result, many things began to change in my life. I live in Vilnius, Lithuania and became friendly with a group of doctors who were all Tannoy loudspeaker enthusiasts.
My new friends were always trying to get the best sound from their audio systems and spent many frustrated hours. I had develo[ed my own technique and when I was able to show them my technique they were impressed, to say the least – read more
I began experimenting with audio cables and eventually found something that really worked. One of my Doctor friends advised me to get a name for my cables and bring them into the marketplace because my cables sounded so good. He said that every Audiophile needed to know they were available. This was ‘Doctors orders’ so to speak and so I created a website to bring my cables into the marketplace!
Perkune audiophile cables are now entering the fourth year of operation and I am really excited about the development with technology and product.
Last week (October 2018) it was my Doctor friends birthday and I presented him with a present. The Ultimate Gold power cord. He was amazed and just could not believe how well it was finished. My friend promised to report the performance which I will pass on to you as soon as it is available!
I love to help people improve the sound from their audio system and will certainly never stop. Comments and letters of thanks are the one thing I love to receive and keep them updated – read more.
My goal is to take my cables around the world and if you have an interest you are more then welcome to join me. About me
