Vanguard Audio Labs was created with one goal – designing and building great, affordable recording tools.

In the past, members of their design team have created studio microphones and monitors that are used by world-renowned artists, engineers, and producers (including Taylor Swift, Herbie Hancock, Robert Plant, Randy Bachman, Buddy Miller, Nathan Chapman, Ray Kennedy, Lady Antebellum and many others…)

Derek Bargaehr (Chief Everything Officer), began burning himself with a soldering iron and messing up his guitar pedals at the age of 15, eventually working as Director of Operations for a successful microphone company for several years. A freelancing engineer, producer, gear tech, and bassist, Derek received a BA in Commercial Music – Audio Engineering & Music Business from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA.
