About Us

By Musicians for Musicians

In 2016, Runway Audio was founded by Austin Woodruff and Tyler Traeger, two friends and musicians who set out to create the best cables they could offer.  We realized that cables can be easily overlooked in the scheme of a musicians setup and wanted to create a brand of cable that could be trusted for only offering the best. 

Runway Audio is located in Nashville, Tennessee and serves musicians around the country and even the globe. We've been lucky enough to work with everyone from touring musicians to bedroom purists and enjoyed every moment. If you'd like to get in touch with us or have any questions about our company, please don't hesitate to contact us
