About Us


Tuna DJ gear is Rotterdam based startup. Let us introduce the team behind Tuna Knobs:

 From left to right, Dimer - manufacturing, Samuel - product & John - all that is left. 

Samuel: “I have always loved making music and DJ’ing, but I was always bound to my gear at home. When a colleague saw me going through all the NAMM 2014 news, he stated that he knew some great iPad apps for making music. I checked them out and realized that I had missed one of the biggest new pieces of music hardware in the past years: the iPad. Powerful, versatile and mobile, it was already well on its way to changing the music world. But playing around with apps like TouchOSC and Korg iElectribe I felt something was missing. I wanted more precise control. I wanted knobs. So that’s the idea I pitched for Tweetonig and they loved it.”

John: "When Samuel pitched his idea, during his internship at our design office, we were on board immediately. It is a simple, clean and very natural solution. We contributed a lot on the technical side of the story. Since our studio has an strong focus on mass producing this comes natural to us. We identified all the problems and started to test them one by one. The biggest challenge was to find a nice feeling conductive rubber. But after many, many, samples from our trusted suppliers we found the perfect blend rubber for this project."
