The world's first passive analog tape simulator

Handsome Audio Zulu Rear

Handsome Audio is proud to announce its first release: Zulu.
Zulu is the world's first passive analog tape simulator and Retro Enhancer.

Using analog modeling techniques that utilize our trade secret Tape Opamp Circuit, we're able to deliver the musical character and behavior of analog tape.

By using Zulu, engineers enjoy the free dynamic punch, infamous bass authority and legendary smooth top end that analog tape is known for.


Zulu offers the sounds of 3 classic platforms:

  • HiFi/Swiss series/Ampex 456      

  • ProFi/Japanese series/Ampex 456            

  • LoFi/4 track studio/Cassette                                       


Zulu offers a complete sonic solution by providing full range control of your tape experience with 5 simple controls.

All around analog tape sound.  $750 (USD) for a dual mono/stereo unit.

Proudly made in the USA.
