Active member of the gear community, speaker builder Ted Weber has passed away

Kokomo, IN (August 27, 2009) -- Ted Weber, founder and engineer of Weber Speakers, died on August 14 at age 58. Ted had been suffering from pulmonary sarcoidosis for some months prior to his death. Ted's responsiveness and involvement in the gear community will not be soon forgotten.

Weber founded the company with his son, T.A. Weber in 1995. Ted began building speakers for fun, eventually moving on to designing and distributing his vintage-flavored speakers from home. The company now employs ten people who hand-build speakers to Ted's specifications.

The tones he has had a part in creating will live on in the hands of the musicians who use his speakers, including Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Joe Walsh, Trey Anastasia, Metallica, Derek Trucks, Rascal Flatts, Brooks & Dunn and Taylor Swift.

T.A. says that Weber Speakers will continue with T.A. and the current employees.
