After another successful NAMM show for Pixel Pro Audio, we're proud to announce that we're adding some new brands! Soon you'll see Nord, MXL Microphones, Hosa, and some other soon to be announced brands hitting our store, and our website. If you need anything from any of those companies, give us a call, we'll get you a good deal, and we'll get you what you're looking for fast!

MXL is a leader in making innovative, affordable, and sexy microphones. The main draw to MXL is the price combined with the quality you receive for that price. They make a lot of microphones, from colorful tube mics, and ribbon mics, to high fidelity, clean condenser microphones.
Finally we should have a very wide selection of Hosa cables up for sale within a week. We added Hosa to our lineup to offer our customers a good quality cable, for the lowest possible price. Hosa is well known for providing quality cables at a discount. Most of us at PPA have used them in many scenarios over the years, and for the money they deliver in spades.
