Shear Electronics

Shear Electronics is an audio technology company based in San Jose, California, USA. Our first product is the Relic, a discrete analog polyphonic synthesizer.


The Relic looks like a cutting-edge analog synthesizer because it is a cutting-edge analog synthesizer. In other words, the Relic is technically at the prototype stage. But we’re certainly moving forward as fast as we can.

As of February 2024, we are limited by supply. If you’re interested, make sure to put your name down on the waiting list by emailing We expect the Relic to be in high demand for a long time, so you should make sure to write your name down as soon as possible!
