Retro Gear Shop is an authorized dealer for Fairchild.

"Fairchild Recording Equipment was founded in 1931 by entrepreneur Sherman Fairchild, to complement his interests in photography and image projection.

Out of production for nearly six decades, FAIRCHILD limiter/compressors had become exceedingly rare and costly to maintain, the original units became “Unobtainium” for most. In 2020 Toni Fishman of TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik, working with a builder in Estonia, found a way to revive the brand Fairchild Recording Equipment and its limiter/compressors. The rebirth of FAIRCHILD has been many years in the making and we are proud to announce that the legend is back!"
