The Collection

THE COLLECTION

We’re not (well… perhaps we are!) obsessed with vintage analogue equipment and vintage instruments. However, we appreciate them, we know them, we understand them, and we know the benefits this equipment and these instruments can bring to the final product.
The quality of the sound is as important as a good performance and composition. We have spent considerable time and energy carefully sourcing our collection of some very rare and funky vintage equipment, microphones and instruments.
We are proud to say all our equipment is original, no re-issues.
However we aren’t completely analogue, for those who want to work in the digital domain, we also record using a Pro-Tools HD 192, 32in/56out system and a broad selection of industry standard plug-ins.
All our gear is regularly maintained, however if you require a particular item from our lists, please let us know and we’ll check it again, making sure it’s ready for your session.
