from Ron Newdoll's catalog at Accurate Sound Company in the early '70s. Ron
owned Accurate Sound Studios in San Angelo, Texas and was the studio used by
Alpine's rock band the "Believers" in 1965. The studio had a professional

began refurbishing Ampex equipment for the professional audio market. You can
