Hazelrigg-Review“The Hazelrigg VLC-1 is a world-class channel strip that makes it easy to capture and shape any source, but it also has a flexibility that allows for fast-paced work flows, allowing the user to have confidence in on-the-fly decisions. In a short time, Hazelrigg has already delivered dozens of VLC-1’s to engineers and studios around the world.” “The tube DI is tremendously clean. I’m used to plugging my guitar and bass into amps and even very good DI’s and getting a sympathetic response from the circuit. This feeling affects my playing and timing; a listener may or may not notice the differences, but a player definitely does. The VLC-1 DI has the unique character of having almost no character at all.” Chibon Littlefield – Everything Audio Network >>> Read the full review.


Dale_Becker“My VLC-1’s are a staple of my workflow. They excel in both recording/production and mixing/mastering applications. In any given day, I could be mastering through them as a tube stage & tone-shaping EQ in the morning and producing Hi-Fi records with them in the evening. The tube character is present but not overbearing. You can hear them smoothing and fattening transients without losing energy or punch. In one case recently, the VLC-1’s literally saved a record during mastering. They brought musicality and space back to a very harsh and distorted mix. If you find my pair on eBay, it’s clearly because someone has broken into my studio and stolen them. NOT FOR SALE.”Dale Becker, Becker Mastering

Knowing that I have 12 channels of pure, musical, lifelike capture permits me to focus my attention on what really matters: my relationship with the artist, the content of their ideas and what I can do to help them communicate with their audience.” – Jon Castelli (Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande)


Love my Hazelrigg pre and eq. It’s now an essential part of my vocal chain” – Spike Stent (Grammy winning producer/mixing engineer)

fullsizerender“When Hazel first arrived on my doorstep, there were no firm plans in place, but I knew she was here to stay. Right from the start, she exuded a presence and self confidence which was undeniable. A classic beauty, spanning time, she does not give away all her secrets straight away. I find myself constantly drawn to her, hungry to hear more…….”

Colin Hay (Producer, lead vocalist of the band Men at Work, and solo artist)

I am absolutely blown away by the Hazelrigg VLC-1 Preamp. Recording my basses through this incredible unit allows me to hear details and nuances that I haven’t heard before.  – ‘The Burner’ Al Turner, Bassist
