We started with Brach in a broom closet, designing guitar amps and pedals freelance for others. In 2015 he joined up with Glen van Alkemade to form Zeppelin Design Labs and we promptly moved from the broom closed to the 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.
We love what we do, with a particular passion for the do-it-yourself audio community. We hope you enjoy building and using our products at least half as much as we enjoy developing them.
Please let us know what you think! Can we design something custom just for you? Inquire at info [at] zeppelindesignlabs [dot] com. Have an idea for a new kit release? Share it on our forum!
