Vintage design for modern recording.
Retro Instruments is changing the way the world sounds by creating classic style audio gear for modern recording. Retro products keep what made the originals the best of the best, updating vintage design with modern features to improve functionality - creating unique and innovative gear that sounds, looks, and feels vintage and state-of-the-art in equal measure.
Headquartered in Northern CA, all Retro products are designed and manufactured in the United States, with unparalleled quality, service, and personal attention.
Retro Instruments was founded by Phil Moore in 2006 to re-introduce classic-quality tube audio products to the professional recording industry. The initial product brought to market was a re-creation of the classic Gates Sta-Level, re-designed by Phil simply because it was his favorite piece of gear and he wanted to recreate it for the modern market. Over the years, Retro has evolved into a company with a diverse and extensive portfolio including re-imagined vintage products that are used by award-winning recording professionals around the world.
As Retro continues to change the game by making the old new again, look forward to upcoming exciting re-issues of classics to be introduced to the industry based on collaboration between Phil Moore and the foremost producers, engineers and artists of our time.
