We are proud to see Loopy Lou listed by Wirecutter as one of the "17 Best Father's Day Gifts."

The greatest gift we can offer the fathers in our lives is our time. A distant second is a thoughtful sentiment or token that recognizes the unique connection between the giver and the recipient. With that in mind, we’ve selected our favorite Father’s Day gifts (chosen from Wirecutter guides and small retailers across the country) that will show your heartfelt affection for your dad—and that can be used and loved for years to come.

Hi everyone! I will keep this light and brief as possible.
BrandNewNoise is still shipping out. I will be updating this post as we take it day by day. I will be here shipping through end of each day, 5pm CST and plan on shipping until there changes in service.
Many of you are sending gifts to those in quarantine, so I ask you place your orders asap to avoid any interruption.
Thanks for the love and support.
I send love, light and creativity to you all.
The Staves recorded their 2014 record with Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) in the famed studio, April Base, and used a BrandNewNoise audio recorder!
In the documentary If I Was, the three sisters are shown playing with a BrandNewNoise audio sampler in the control room at Justin Vernon's recording studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Vernon has been a long time fan of our musical instruments and voice recorders.
Watch the documentary below and see them playing around and laughing around 0:55 seconds into the video.
The Loft Chicago, Wilco's recording studio, recently posted about having a bunch of BrandNewNoise musical instruments and audio recorders to use in various ways.
They said "We have a bunch of these totally fun sound boxes at the Loft made by @brandnewnoise and we find uses all the time. They are mostly little handheld voice recorders with tiny embedded microphones that have simple controls that add delay and mess with the speed and pitch of the captured audio. Each box is a little different. You can make weird loops or make your voice sound demonic. I keep this one (the Frankie model) at my desk for when I get scam credit card calls. I record myself saying 'Hello?' then unleash the altered and slowed down loop of the same 'hello' until the asswipe trying to scam me hangs up. Live life to the fullest."
BrandNewNoise was featured in the Wall Street Journal!

The Black Keys BrandNewNoise collaboration shown above.
Death Cab for Cutie recently reached out to say that they used the BrandNewNoise Zoots kalimba on the title track I Dreamt We Spoke Again on the most recent album, Thank You For Today.
If you listen to the track you can hear the Zoots part first come in around the 36 second mark.
It's always a pleasure to hear praise for our sound gadgets and we love to hear how they get used.
