     Hi! I'm Mike Ransom and I am an Assistant Manager here at Guitar Center in Hollywood, nice to meet ya! I have been a musician pretty much my entire life and in almost every genre imaginable and that experience has given me the rare opportunity to tour as an artist to practically every club, theater, arena, and amphitheater in every major (and not so major) city in the lower 48 States, plus multiple tours over in England, Scotland, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and of course up to our neighbors up North in Canada.

     I also have worked in the studio world as a session musician, a recording, mixing, and digital editing engineer, and also done live FOH sound, Monitor Mixing, and Lighting  in clubs here in LA and on the road. I love to help other musicians and engineers find the gear they need so they can make their dreams come true so don't be shy about contacting me so we can make it happen together!
