Ridge Farm Industries is based at the legendary Ridge Farm Studio in Surrey, UK.  In 1994 technical manager Richard Kirk and engineer Pierre-Olivier Margerand (POM) decided to design and build a valve DI box for in-house use. The prototype was an instant success, and studio clients started asking if they could have one too.

The ‘Gas Cooker’ – named for the twin knobs more usually seen on domestic appliances – is now an essential piece of gear for any self-respecting engineer, musician or studio.

The ‘Boiler’ ultra compressor-limiter was soon added to the product list, receiving rave reviews in the pro audio press.
