May is an exciting month for Coffman Labs as we prepare for the launch of our first amplifier.  The G1-A strongly reflects the philosophy behind our company, so I'd like to share a bit about our founder's background and values:

Damon Coffman worked his way through college as a concert violinist and obtained an advanced degree in physics through the Naval Postgraduate School.  He then specialized as an engineer in the Navy and later on in medical technology firms.  While working as a VP of Engineering and CTO for pioneering medical companies, Damon rediscovered his love of music and began exploring the designs of the classic amplifiers from the golden age of analog audio.  Realizing that he could rely on his physics and engineering expertise to create clean, custom circuits that made his favorite recordings sing, he began to enlist local artists and artisans in crafting a one-of-a-kind chassis that articulated the purity of the amplifier design contained within.

In optimizing specialized parts for the amplifier and using locally made custom parts for our chassis, Coffman Labs is keeping our commitment to supporting green manufacturing, local business, and high-craft artisanship.  By keeping our products as limited-edition runs, we can ensure the authenticity and heirloom quality of each item that we create.  We're proud of our unique approach to audio and design, and we believe that our amplifiers will be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come.
