It’s taken quite a long time to put together a seamless and productive as well as inspiring work environment where you can feel in focus and creative without distractions. My intention has always been to make the process non-obtrusive so that you as the artist can focus on the details that are important such as your performances and your creative output. I believe it is ideas that truly count .
The studio includes:
Amek/BIG by Langley 44 channel mixing console
Protools 96 i/o HD 24 x24
A beautiful 1920’s Steinway upright piano
Numerous vintage electric guitars including a 1972 Les Paul Goldtop, 1957 Les Paul Jr, 1968 Guild Starfire, Fender “Keith Richards” Telecaster(re-issue)
A large collection of beautiful sounding guitar amps including my personal favorite 60’s Gibsonn Skylark and Ampeg Gemini amps. For some serious volume I also have a very rare hand wired Fender Vibro King 3/10 amp . Pete Townsend uses them and he’s almost deaf!!!!
Many guitar pedals that are fairly rare such as a selection of Electro Harmonix, Danelectro and the now famous Wobulator pedal .
Several fine acoustic guitars including a 1928 Martin parlor guitar, Gibson Mini Hummingbird(Emmylou Harris signed model) , 1972 Guild 6 string and a vintage 4 string Duclimer made in South Carolina by a real old guy.
A wide selection of beautiful classic tube microphones including my personal favorites, a Neumann u-47 dating from the late 50’s and a pair of amazing Sony 3-37A tube mics dating from the early to mid 60’s.
Many classic analog keyboards including my somewhat ancient Roland JP-8 which miraculously still breathes inspiration. Also a very wonderful Conn rotating speaker organ with the most awe inspiring sounds you can imagine.
A big shelf full of every possible thing you can imagine to bang on and make a sound. Guiro anyone?
