Burl Audio is a Californian pro audio equipment engineering and manufacturing company with a difference — by being based out of Paradise Recording, a commercial recording studio in Santa Cruz. Here its professional engineers create the best possible modular outboard recording devices for all levels of recording engineers at reasonable prices. All are designed to improve record, mixing, and mastering.


As such, they offer a complete solution, comprising the B1 and B1D mic preamps based on the API 500 Series form factor — the latter replacing the former’s custom BX2 nickel output transformer for the all-iron BX4, resulting in “…a more terrifying tone,” B80 MOTHERSHIP (multichannel version of the company’s critically-acclaimed B2 BOMBER ADC and DAC), B32 VANCOUVER 32x2 analogue summing mix bus, and B26 ORCA control room monitor. Far from being throwaway tools, all are designed to be a lifelong asset to recording sessions. Surely that’s an enticing prospect for prospective purchasers?


And anyone purchasing a Burl Audio product will be in good company. Notable producers, mastering, mix, and recording engineers working across the full spectrum of music genres have happily held their hands up as high-flying users, including Michael Wagener (Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica) and Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles) to namedrop but two of the best.


Speaking of names, according to Burl, Burly is the heavy surf and fog that descends without warning over Santa Cruz, California. Fortunately, foggy doesn’t describe the sound of any appealing Burl Audio products! Punch on drums, beautiful tonality on guitars, and warmth with presence on vocals are all much more fitting descriptive terms — thanks to the renowned discrete analogue, Class-A circuitry used throughout most of them.
