Former by three individuals who had previously worked for Line 6 and Strymon, Meris caught the interest of musicians when it introduced its first product, the Model 440 mic preamp for 500 series format lunchbox racks, in 2014.

More 500 series studio processors emerged over the next few years, followed in 2017 by the introduction of a highly impressive trio of pedals – the Ottobit Jr., Mercury7 and Polymoon – the first two being adapted from their 500 series rack counterparts.
