The Equipment List

What engineers live for!

Music production is an art in itself. The tools with which we create our art have been carefully chosen for the task at hand. Every microphone was selected for specific characteristics, each preamp chosen for its unique features and sound coloration.

The equipment listed below would be the envy of any recording engineer! We havenʼt skimped in this department because your music deserves the best, and thatʼs what we deliver.
