We have a great mix of Analog and Digital recording gear, along with a huge list of rare and classic instruments! Please make sure to let your Engineer know what mics, instruments and gear you may need as you are booking a session. Not all instruments, outboard gear or mics are available all of the time, but we will always do our best to accommodate your needs!
