This is my story – Since 1960, I have been involved with music and audio equipment. I hope you enjoy reading this story about me, which begins in my mother’s kitchen.
I was about twelve years old and a member of the church choir but loved all types of music. When my mother was out working I used her cleaning bowls as a drum kit. The drumsticks were heavy knitting needles and worked very well. I spent hours making a horrible noise but got better as time passed.
The next step was when I took my father’s acoustic guitar. The guitar was his pride and joy and was kept locked up under his bed. But one day the guitar was left out by mistake and that was the start of my real musical experience!
I soon because a ‘Shadows’, fan and would spend hours listening to the music trying to play the same as Hank! 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, the fitness instructor on rhythm, the drama master playing bass and I played the lead. The music we played was from ‘The Shadows’. We practised intently and actually became very proficient. At the school concert, we were a huge success, and people still talk about Paul and the “Educators” to this day!
After leaving school I served a four-year apprenticeship in electrical and electronic Instrumentation. Which, gave me an excellent background in the basic understanding of electronics. And, naturally tied into musical equipment. 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.
I was fortunate to see many of the groups performing live. And, actually got to play with some of them as I became more proficient in my playing. Last week I watched one of the Rolling stones very first tours on ‘You-tube’ and saw how they improved over the years. And this is what life is all about – living, learning and improving!
As time passed, so did my direction. And, rather than play music, I began to work with live mixing. I was always able to get a great mix and had the ability to create a musical picture. Also, positioning and re-positioning of audio equipment in the listening room came naturally to me.
And, I was ready to help friends set up their systems, and paint that musical picture. I loved the compliments and loved what I did. But never realised it would take me to where I am now!
Oil and Gas
In 1970 my direction once again changed because I had 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.
I visited different countries worldwide and was able to see many beautiful places. My life was interesting because my work allowed me to keep up with my passion. High-end audio and I was always able to afford to buy the latest audio components.
At the beginning of 2015, the oil and gas industry started to slow down. This 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, I might add, spent many frustrating hours. I developed my own technique and when I was able to show them my audio system set-up technique, they were impressed!
I began experimenting with audio cables and eventually found something which really worked. One of my Doctor friends advised me to get a name for my cables and bring them into the marketplace. Why? Because my cables sounded so good!
And, said every Audiophile needed to know about my cables. This was ‘Doctors orders’, so to speak. And, I created a website to bring my cables into the marketplace!
My Goal This is my story
Last week (April 25th 2019) I was very fortunate to visit a gentleman with an Audio Note system. The system was the top of the range and music was a joy to hear. But, the cost of the system was more than a new apartment!
My goal is to take my cables around the world. And, if you have an interest you are more then welcome to join me. Because I offer the Best audiophile cables online.
