Rob Turner

Rob Turner’s first instrument was the drums; in fact it was the drums that brought him to establish one of the world’s best-known guitar pickup companies! While on tour in the early 1970s his drum kit was stolen, forcing him to rent a kit for the remaining tour. The experience caused him to rethink his goals and he went back to school to learn all he could about business. In 1976 he formed EMG Pickups and has since created a line of innovative products that have sold around the world.
