msa_2013_BlackIt gives us a great deal of pride to honor these manufacturers and dealers, the winners of the 27th annual Music & Sound Awards, for their outstanding efforts in 2012. In the music products industry, our fates are interconnected, since the strength of the market depends on far more than any individual business and its practices. These companies—manufacturers and dealers alike—reflect well on all of us, and underscore the excellence that our industry continues to embody.

The Music & Sound Retailer sincerely congratulates all the winners on this achievement.
