FBT’s statement reads: “Much loved and highly respected by all he knew, Mr. Baldoni passed away peacefully on 20th March 2017. Together, Bruno Baldoni and Vinicio Tanoni helped lay the foundations of the modern music and audio industries.

“Their partnership was one of mutual understanding – Mr. Tanoni, the meticulous engineer, and Mr. Baldoni, the passionate audio enthusiast who saw the future they would create together. Having jointly founded FBT in 1963, their dedication and hard work was met with great success. Yet as strong as FBT grew, in his heart, Mr. Baldoni was inspired simply by his love of music and sound.
