December News & Season’s Greetings from Manley Laboratories!

– First, A Note from EveAnna Manley –

Warm Season’s Greetings to my Manley family around the globe!

I sure am looking forward to having a few days off this year after busting our tails off all of 2018. This year we finally got the stunning Manley Absolute Headphone Amplifier into production and the first reviews have been raves. Check out this video that Kevin Deal of Upscale Audio here in Southern California produced about it. He goes through every detail of the product and provides some useful insider information to drive customers to his business.

This is the kind of content creation from a dealer that is to be commended. I hope this inspires your marketing teams as well. It has inspired me! Let’s continue to rock in 2019!

And just as a final reminder, we will honor all Purchase Orders for Manley Absolute Headphone Amplifiers received before January 1, 2019 at the special introductory MSRP of $3800, and then the permanent retail price of $4500 kicks in. INVEST! Here is your chance to order deep in order to make more margin!

In honor of our 30th Anniversary of building high-end American-made tube gear, we are doing something extremely rare for us: giving away a Manley Enhanced Pultec EQP-1A.

The celebration began at AES 2018 and will conclude at the January 2019 Winter NAMM Show – we are encouraging our fans to review the Manley gear they’ve used over the last three decades and send us links to these reviews. We’ll then pick a random winner and announce it at the NAMM Show in Anaheim!

For the last thirty years, the Manley Reference Cardioid Microphone has had that “finished” sound right out of the box, making it the favorite vocal mic of top producers and voiceover artists alike. Not only has it appeared on a MASSIVE number of Top 10 hits from the late ’90s onwards, but it was also the mic behind the “Voice of God” in countless movie trailers – thanks to the legendary Don LaFontaine.

This is modern pop music’s go-to mic: flattering, present, and larger-than-life. Some people even refer to it as the “Just Add Talent” microphone.
We should mention that it pairs exceptionally well with…


Building upon its 25-year legacy producing revered recording studio equipment, Manley Labs has distilled its technologies into the Manley CORE – an innovative channel strip that combines Manley’s Greatest Hits with fresh technology.

The remarkably intuitive front panel combines musical and forgiving circuitry that allows the musician to concentrate on their performance instead of being lost in a sea of knobs. Ease of use and intelligently chosen operating points make it virtually impossible to cut a bad sounding track!
