Zeppelin Design Labs
Zeppelin Design Labs started with Brach in a broom closet, designing guitar amps and pedals freelance for others. In 2015 Glen van Alkemade joined up to form Zeppelin Design Labs and they promptly moved from the broom closed to the reclaimed bathroom. Nestled in a Chicago warehouse, tucked away between the tee shirt printer, the mechanic’s garage and the sheet metal shop. Zeppelin Design Labs designs, manufactures and markets unique DIY audio products direct to the consumer — you!
Have you ever used a product – anything – and thought “Wow, the bozo who designed this thing obviously never actually tried to use it himself!” Having bought and built dozens of kits over the years, and well-aware of the frustrations caused by a poorly-designed product, we are determined to make ours the best-in-class. Every Zeppelin Design Labs product is a fusion of stylish design, clever ideas, top-shelf materials, terrific performance, ease of construction, and the best documentation possible.
At Zeppelin Design Labs, they love what we they do, with a particular passion for the do-it-yourself audio community. We hope you enjoy building and using their products at least half as much as they enjoy developing them.
