Introducing the Meris 440 Mic pre and product launch

meris_440_45An exciting new high-end studio electronics company based in L.A., California, Meris ( has been established by Terry Burton, the hardware and software engineer who previously founded the guitar effects company Strymon in 2008. Also joining Meris are Angelo Mazzocco, previously Line 6’s top choice DSP Engineer to the stars (Van Halen, The Edge and Dweezil Zappa to name but a few…) and Creative Director Jinna Kim hailing from L.A.’s leading design studios and who previously created the brand identity for Strymon.

Meris’s debut product is the 440 Mic Pre; an innovative 500-Series module with an effects loop optimised for guitar pedals. The unit was designed as the ultimate mic pre for recording guitar, delivering classic American tone with its legendary Cinemag input/output transformers and the added advantage of an integral in/out effects loop, ideal for delivering distortion-free audio to effects pedals. The Meris 440, not limited to guitar, performs just as well on vocals and other instruments, delivering warm, open tone reminiscent of the time-honoured API 312 preamps.

In celebration of this exciting new product Meris are holding a product launch at Red Bull Music studios, London on Tuesday October 14th, 6 – 9pm. If you would like to attend please email as this is a strictly limited numbers event.
