So what exactly is a “Mackoid”? Unfortunately, neither Webster's dictionary or the Encyclopedia Britannica provide an answer. But if these respected publications ever had an entry for “Mackoid," it would probably be accompanied by a photo of Mr. Tyler Gregg. We recently met Tyler roaming the aisles at the NAMM trade show in Anaheim. Tyler is a DJ based in Lake Elsinore, California who is very passionate about his music. So passionate in fact, that when he was faced with the important decision of what his next tattoo would be, he chose the one thing he felt the closest to - the Mackie Running Man. Tyler told us that the Running Man reminds him of himself - a guy who really likes to get down and kick ass. Besides being the proud owner of Mackie equipment including a 1604 and SRM450's, he constantly finds himself relying on all kinds of Mackie equipment for the many gigs he does. We're grateful to be such a big part of Tyler's world. From everyone at Mackie, thank you Tyler Gregg for being a true Mackoid.
If you consider yourself a true Mackoid, please send us your story. If you're anything like Tyler, we'd love to share your story with the many other Mackoids. And we would also be happy to publish (almost) any photos of your Mackie tattoo, piercing, etc.
