Universal Audio

Founded in 1958 by Bill Putnam Sr., Universal Audio has been synonymous with innovative recording products since its inception. A favorite engineer of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles and more, the late Bill Putnam Sr. was a passionate innovator who is widely regarded as the father of modern recording — with many of his legendary studio and equipment designs still in use today.

Universal Audio was re-founded in 1999 by Bill's sons, James Putnam and Bill Putnam Jr., with two main goals: to faithfully reproduce classic analog recording equipment in the tradition of their father; and to design new digital recording tools with the sound and spirit of vintage analog technology. Nothing better represents the merging of analog heritage and groundbreaking digital designs than the award-winning Apollo audio interface. Apollo has become the new worldwide standard for professional music production and has been used to record breakthrough albums by artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Dr. Dre, Brad Paisley, and countless more.

Dirt Cheep is proud to offer UA's Apollo and Volt lines of recording products to our loyal customers, as well as the complete catalog of Universal Audio analog hardware, guitar processors, microphones, and more.  Click or call us today.
