New recording equipment designs made with hand craftiness, a bit of ingenuity, and a bunch of new-old-stock vacuum tubes!
Lightning Boy Audio designs and manufactures high-end professional audio recording equipment in Western New York, USA. Hand made, wired point to point, and loaded with high fidelity tube tone. Not just a unique sound. Quite possibly the baddest tube gear you ever heard.
May 2015: Based in North Collins, New York, Lightning Boy is the very definition of a boutique audio company. A still better description might be an artisanal audio company, as it reminds me of the pro audio version of a small batch distillery or cheesemaker...more.
About Lightning Boy Audio
Vacuum tube based professional audio gear, made by hand one piece at a time in the United States of America. All Lightning Boy Audio equipment is hand wired point to point using silver plated wire and a secret blend of solder, which contains silver. You'll never find a printed circuit board in any Lightning Boy Audio gear... only old school turret boards and the finest wiring around. NOS vacuum tubes and paper in oil capacitors are at the heart of every LBA Build. Lightning Boy does it the old school way, but with the best components available today. That means lots of Military grade components and equipment that's built to last. Take a look around the site, but don't forget to check out our proprietary hand-made paper in oil capacitors... Flux Capacitors. They are in virtually all Lightning Boy creations.
