Founded by engineer/producers Rob Chiarelli and Chandler Bridges, Gauge Microphones USA imports two large-diaphragm condenser microphone models from China.
The company has an unusual testing procedure for its products. Not only do Bridges or Chiarelli test every microphone personally, they keep a reference recording of each on file.
We put our names on the line with each mic we ship, so we keep a permanent recording of every microphone we test on file, including the rejects.
We have 100% customer satisfaction and 0% returns.
As of March 2009, Gauge has suffered its first return — from someone who wanted to use an EMC-87 on a karaoke machine.
