Our position as an innovator and leading audio technology company has produced a variety of industry-changing audio products, and has provided the experience to create products with strong crossover from the pro audio and music segments to the consumer market.
Over the years, Samson has pioneered a number of technical breakthroughs in wireless such as the incorporation of dbx Noise Reduction, synthesized wireless with selectable frequencies, the first 19” rack-mount receiver, microprocessor-controlled true diversity (dual receiver) designs and cost-effective UHF wireless for live sound applications, system contracting and video. Samson also was the first company to introduce micro-transmitter wireless systems that don’t require belt packs: The Airline System.
In 2005, we began production on our line of USB Microphones. Now the industry standard and top selling USB microphones on the market, the Q1U, C01U, C03U and G-Track provide affordable solutions for anyone wishing to enter the latest trends in new media like podcasting.
With Hartke Systems, innovation first came from the American bass amp and cabinet manufacturer with their unique aluminum cone drivers. Samson Technologies is now the exclusive worldwide distributor of Hartke amplifiers, cabinets and combos. Hartke’s new HyDrive Bass Cabinets represent a revolutionary improvement in bass speaker technology, fusing paper and aluminum in a roadworthy speaker design that is more robust and efficient than anything available.
As the exclusive U.S. distributor for Zoom, Samson Technologies is also a leading design and development partner for products like the legendary 505 guitar effects processor, the best selling effects pedal. More recently, in partnership with Zoom, we launched the popular Q3 Handy Video Recorder, which uses our renowned audio technology to make it the best sounding video camcorder on the market. Also, H1 Handy Recorder has taken its place as the easiest, most portable handheld recorder ever.
Over three decades, Samson has grown from a small two-person operation, to a multinational enterprise with over 100 employees and a 126,000-square foot corporate and distribution headquarters. With products like our USB microphones, Handy Recorders, and a nearly exhaustive variety of products and accessories for audio, Samson expects its phenomenal growth to continue for the next 30 years and beyond.
