Since the introduction of the DS201 noise gate in 1982 Drawmer products have consistently remained the unequivocal choice of producers, engineers and artist’s, and, as such, have been installed in almost every major recording studio, live venue and broadcast facility throughout the world. The company, which is based in Yorkshire, England, was founded by Ivor Drawmer, whose passion was designing audio circuits. The influential contribution of Ivor Drawmer to pro-audio design over the last 30 years has been recognised by the APRS (Association of Professional Recording Studios). The Association presented him with a coveted Award for Lifetime Technical Achievement to the Audio Industry.
