Chief Executive Officer Ross Ritto founded the company in Rochester, New York, in March 1971, under the name Silverfish Audio Associates Ltd.Excerpts from the original Silverfish brochure:Silverfish Audio as provided quality concert sound reinforcement since 1972. With many sound companies emphasizing volume and equipment size, Silverfish works with the concept that fidelity and personalized sound enhance every performance. This concept has become the favorite of many performers, especially for their monitors.
Through the years, Silverfish systems have been used on live albums by Al Stewart, Emmylou Harris, Jimmy Buffett, Jesse Colin Young, and Warren Zevon, while these and others have made Silverfish their choice for a touring concert system.
The flexibility and variety of our equipment makes it possible to handle the needs of any musical style. Each system is built with the road show in mind, and time-saving operations from load-in to load-out. Each piece of the system is designed to fit in a modular fashion, saving valuable truck space.
As the electronic age matures and grows, the engineers at Silverfish Audio are redesigning and improving sound systems to help enhance that next performance.
