Please note: We Have finally completed the moving of our company - and production is up to normal again. We aim to get lead times down from the current 14 weeks down to some 6-8 weeks sometime soon.
Gyraf Audio is an audio electronics research and development company, situated in Aarhus, Denmark, and was founded in partnership with one of Denmark's largest recording studios, the now defunkt Feedback Recording.
Presenting G21 Magneto-Dynamic Infundibulum- The fully passive stereo soft-clipper ...
For product development, we used the Feedback Studios and their associated engineers as an advanced "testbed" for our products, developing our products in close contact with our recording staff. The real world is our most valuable test.
We manufacture "real" tube audio devices, meaning that the audio signal paths in our equipment is kept clean of any active solid-state components like IC's and transistors. Your audio will only pass Transformers, Tubes, and passive components on it's way through any of our units. Well, we're not purists, so we use modern solid-state electronics for non-audio purposes - like power supplies, metering, and sidechains in the compressors. Also, the upcoming G21 "Magneto-Dynamic Infundibulum" will contain certain semiconductors in the signal path, but used entirely passively.
In production, we focus on hand building single units or small series of 2-4 units at one time - we have given up on any sort of mass-production, as that has shown unsuitable for our designs. And yes, every single unit is still handbuilt by yours truly.
Our product range covers a broad range of basic recording and mastering equipment: Microphone preamplifiers, Equalizers, Compressors, and even the occational tube microphone (In cooperation with Tim Campbell of "Campbell Transmitter"). We're also into designing and building specialized equipment according to user specification - although this can be a costly and time-consuming process.
We base all our designs on readily available tubes, most of which are in current production. So there's no need to worry too much about future availability of the needed glowing wonders.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent growth in interest for our products - combined with shortage of some of the parts we need, current lead time is very long - ca. 14weeks on the G14 and ca. 12weeks on the rest of the range
