Vintage King Audio is the 2013 'Best Online Presentation' winner, as recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) at the Top 100 Dealer awards.  Chosen from among hundreds of peers in music instrument and product retailing from around the world, Vintage King's efforts and business practices exemplify the very best in category. The award was presented to Tom Menrath, Vintage King's Head of Strategic Development, at the annual music product trade show, Summer NAMM, held in Nashville, TN. Vintage King was also honored as one of the Top 100 Dealers in May 2013. 

"It is wonderful to be recognized for our efforts to continually provide the best possible user experience to our customers, across the board. By striving to offer a detailed & thorough, yet clean & simple web interface, I believe we are helping music-making people around the world learn about and acquire the right tools they need, whatever their scope," said Jason Van Doorn, Director of Marketing at Vintage King

Music instrument and product retailers were judged using a numeric rating by a panel of impartial expert judges selected by, but not otherwise affiliated with NAMM.

"Vintage King has demonstrated their unwavering commitment to innovation and service to their community," said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. "And with an increase of nearly 60% in dealer entries, this year's competition was especially tough. All of the nominees deserve our respect for their dedication to their customers and the important role they play in helping more people enjoy the benefits of playing music!"

"We've assembled a great team that is dedicated to improving the experience of our online customers. We don't want to just push Vintage King forward, we want to push the entire industry forward. This award shows that we are on the right track," added Josh Frank, Director of eCommerce at Vintage King.
