Gayle Levant is the leading harpist in Los Angeles. She has played on countless movie scores and has recorded with some of the biggest names in music including Ray Charles, Barbara Streisand, and Frank Sinatra. The first time she heard her harp recorded with ribbons was when she was doing us a favor recording a track for our first demo CD. The studio's heater had broken the night before and we were ready to cancel the session, but Gayle sat down (coat on and fingers half frozen) and played a beautiful piece for us. The results were breathtaking. When she came into the control room to listen to that first playback, she literally broke into tears saying "I've never heard my harp recorded like this before. This is exactly the way it sounds when I'm playing!" It touched everyone in the room, and Gayle sat in the cold and played for hours. Over the years, we've been fortunate to collect hundreds of stories like Gayle's. We love making music. We love recording music. And we know you do too. That's why we're dedicated to making the finest handcrafted microphones in the world.
