Their statement seems fairly clear.


That last sentence opens space for "future" plans… Also, GML was not always being produced by Manley Labs so this would not be the first time that GML would have to change their manufacturing. From the statement it seems that the partnership between GML and Manley was terminated by Manley and not GML, so I think it's safe to assume that at least there's will from GML to continue to produce gear…

The only relevant piece of GML gear for mastering would the EQs I suppose. The dynamic range controller is rarely seen. Interesting that in GM's bio there is no mention of the glorious Sontec EQ that he designed with Burgess. Best, JT

9500 with 2030 for mastering here. Love them both. Hope GML can resolve this manufacturing issue soon.

I've placed an order of SOMA and Vari-Mu II and waiting for their delivery. Hopefully I will have them in November. I am not expecting SOMA to sound anything like the 9500 at all. They are very different in design. I love my 9500 and 2030. Been using them for over 10 years now and they just got the job done no matter what kind of music I'm doing. I also have 8200 and 8900 as well. Guess I'm a big fan of GML gears. It would be sad to see they stop making them.

"noiz

I hear ya. I've taken that into account as well, but am willing to roll the dice. I've had the 8200 since 2006
and it's time for a change, ...specially since the +/- 15 dB gain throw and non-step pots aren't all that conducive.
Congrats by the way.

Thanks Garrett.  Needing to have recall was part of the motivation to where I didn't use the 8200 much for the last year or so.  I was close to thinking about the 9500 as well, ..but ended up contacting Jonte,.. and he was great to deal with and his craftsmanship is right on.  Spending freeze starts now.

I love the anodized blue Knif units I'm seeing lately. I tried to get red but the company that does the anodizing won't do the 4mm panels he needs. The blue looks killer though!

 

It goes good with the blue of the Tube Techs.  I saw you have the Mu comin' (thumbsup)

Just an update as I see that some GML gear is back in production..

"as of this last fall GML is building and delivering GML 8200's, 2032's, and soon, 8302's & 4's; we are taking orders from selected dealers. our current gear is of the same, or better, industry-standard quality that we have always worked hard to maintain and deliver.

this is not a sales pitch, just clarifying the record and the current direction.

George"
