D'Angelico Guitars has announced its acquisition of Supro USA and Pigtronix.

Both Supro and Pigtronix were previously owned by Long Island, NY-based Absara Audio. Supro had previously collaborated with D'Angelico as a guitar/amp pairing in marketing efforts, while Supro's recently-released Blues King 10 amp features a Pigtronix Fat Drive mode.

Their geographic proximity to the New York City-based D'Angelico also played a key role in the acquisition, according to the storied guitar manufacturer.

“All three companies having a home base in New York just amplifies the harmony these brands already share,” said D’Angelico COO Jimmy Lovinggood.

The three companies are already working on company restructuring, and a revised product plan for 2021.

“The acquisition of Supro and Pigtronix by D’Angelico creates a trifecta,” said Dave Koltai, former co-owner and new CTO of Supro and Pigtronix. “It’s a perfect fit, and I am thrilled to be able to continue making new gear for musicians around the world.”
