THE FIRST DEMERBOX
James Demer always had a deep appreciation for music and sound, building a career in location audio recording. Most of his career was spent traveling to far-flung sets all over the world where he worked for shows such as Survivor and VICE News. Demer wanted a good sound system that would not get beat up in transit or in inclement weather. So, he drilled holes into a Pelican Case (a brand of high-end storage boxes used extensively in the TV industry to protect gear), screwed in some old speakers and made the first DemerBox. At his next job in Barrow, Alaska he used them as a playback device. The crew loved it and DemerBox was born.
In early 2017 multi-platinum, Grammy Award-Winning artist Zac Brown, of Zac Brown Band discovered Demerbox on Amazon. Zac gave it a test of his own, took the Demerbox on a spearfishing trip to Belize. Immediately impressed, he became an instant Demerbox fan and quickly invested in the startup.
We are still proudly building each Demerbox speaker by hand
in the USA. Today Demerbox operates out of a high-tech workshop in Fort
Lauderdale, Florida and are proudly building what they believe is the best
sounding, most durable portable speaker available.
Demerbox continues to play as hard as you do!
