WELLINGTON, FL – September 08, 2015 – GearSource has served the audio, lighting, staging and video world since 2002 when it was founded by industry vet, Marcel Fairbairn. The company was created on a foundation of proprietary and reliable software that would allow it to expand both geographically and into other market segments. Recently, as a test of its multi-site capabilities, GearSource launched a racing site using the same technology that drives GearSource.com, GearSourceEurope.com and GearSourceMexico.com
Today, the company announced that it will expand its massive database to include musical instruments and amplification, also known in the production world as “Backline”. Because of the many opportunities for crossover buyers and sellers, the company has elected not to re-brand a separate website. Instead, items of all genres will be available bringing more value to all of the site’s users and also more users to the site’s sellers.
“My roots really come from the music retail world where I learned to sell and to develop my own network of individuals and businesses (bands). Those experiences carried me throughout my career and I have always had live music and musical instruments and amplification in my blood, so I’m excited to expand in this direction,” said Fairbairn.
The division will officially launch Oct 1st, but items have already begun to appear on the site. The GSMI division is being headed by Fairbairn’s longtime associate, Rob Brown. “Robbie is one of the most passionate and talented guitar guys I have ever known. We’re fortunate to have him on-board,” said Fairbairn. And Brown added, “Marcel and I worked closely in the music business during the ‘80s and we’re really excited to do it again under the GearSource umbrella.”
Marcel Fairbairn polished his chops in the Entertainment Lighting business following a successful earlier career in retail musical instruments. He left high-school to travel with various Western Canadian bands where he took on vocals and bass guitar. At age 20, Marcel realized it wasn’t live performance that he loved, but the instruments and gear itself. He started working with a Calgary based retailer and made his way up to partner within a short time. Eventually, Marcel expanded his interests to Audio and Lighting systems which took him through the next stages of his career and ultimately, to the founding of GearSource and other similar businesses.
It’s free to list products for sale and the company’s tools include a listings app, bulk uploading functions and an API to tie into larger inventories.
