The name Drawmer is synonymous with professional signal processing in recording studio, broadcast and live sound reinforcement environments. The company which is based in Yorkshire, England was founded by Ivor Drawmer whose passion was designing audio circuits.

"Ivor's designs have not only played a significant role in the way that signal processing has evolved, but have also shaped the product ranges of our competitors. After 18 years from its introduction, the DS201 remains the standard noise gate of the industry."
