Although you will seldom find it published, a manufacturer's philosophy is indeed built into every product. At Rane we believe that true quality is in the details. It's seen in the painstakingly chosen precision components, in the neat and solid construction, in the comprehensive manuals, and most importantly in the care and concern of the dedicated people at Rane that make it all happen. Manufacturers will always make claims, but the real truth is proven with time, in the hands of countless users. In the end, you are the best judge. Whatever your requirements, make sure you choose a product for its quality and reputation--it's worth it. And if it's a piece of Rane gear, we're confident you'll derive as much personal satisfaction in using it as we have from creating it.
