Samson Technologies

Samson Technologies

Manufacturing a hugely diverse range of products, the company is split into three distinct brands - Samson Audio, Samson Wireless and Hartke.

History of Samson Technologies

Samson was founded in 1980, with its current headquarters based in Long Island, New York. The brand started its life designing and manufacturing wireless microphone systems, and is still arguably the the class-leader within this field. It wasn’t until the following decade that Samson started to expand its range however, in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience.

This included launching power amps, PA speakers, mixers, signal processors and studio/live microphones. All garnering acclaim for their audio quality much like their wireless systems, it was in 2005 that Samson designed the very first pro-grade USB microphone. With a full line-up available today, Samson’s USB-powered mics aren’t used only by musicians, but also by broadcasters and podcasters too. 

Samson own Hartke bass amplification, a popular brand within the bass world. With a number of high-profile users, including Victor Wooten and David Ellefson (Megadeth), Hartke were responsible for creating the aluminium speaker cone driver. This innovation broadened and improved the dynamic range of electric basses, inspiring the modern bass tones that we hear today.

The Samson Technologies Range

Samson has a variety of wireless systems in their current catalogue, choosing to build upon their roots rather than abandon them. The Concert 88 series is arguably their most diverse and affordable, offering systems for microphones, headsets, guitars and even cameras. The Airline and Concert 99 series are Samson's more high-end systems, offering longer distance operation and superior audio quality whilst remaining competitively-priced.

The C01U Pro and C03U USB studio condenser microphones offer immense detail to ensure unmatched vocal quality. With the latter featuring multiple patterns, you can set it up to capture the sound of a room or group recording. The Go, Meteor, Meteorite and UB1 microphones are ultra-portable alternatives, ideal for on-the-go recording.
