Keepin' it real.
Is this a pic from the Platium Room at Guitar Center?
On a serious note, that is an amazing setup you got! And amazing gear!
What are the things in the output jack? It’s hard to see on my iPad.
They're wireless transmitters. The receivers are at the front of my pedal chain in an A-B switch box.
I had half of the "mezzanine" level in the 1980s.
The building was shared by a number of regional bands, studios, production, lighting and sound companies, and wood and fabrication shops.
One of the bands while I was there was a pre-NIИ Trent Reznor project that I occasionally would fill in for as sound man.
My projects included The Mezz Band and heavy metal Black Diamond.
Nice API gear. I would love to have equipment like that, but way out of my league cost wise.................
God Bless this mess lol
Thanks! Not sure about your GC but mine isn't stocked like this. Though a couple of these have actually come from GC!
Here is my current “covid” set up.
Thanks! I love the API sound. It’s not cheap, but after years of working 12 hours a day to build up my business I treated myself. It’s more gear than I need, but less than I want..... I’ve always had some sort of studio since the late 70’s when I had a TEAC 3340 and a Tapco mixer. I really like how acoustic guitars and drums sound through it.
Is that a Manley Tube Limiter and a vintage 1176 behind the Apple Monitor? I have been looking at a LA-610 for a while, but just too much $$$. You definitely have some high end gear.
Yes, I love the Manley ELOP compressor which I use on all kinds of things including the mixbus. The LA610mk2 is great for vocals, but would be ideal as a single channel strip for a home setup. You can get one for around a grand and it has EQ and compressor which is a lot of bang for the buck and it sounds great! The 1176 is a silver UREI and gets used when I mix.
All those zzzzzzzzz’s makes me feel sleepy
I have had this discussion with a few luthiers... my house has a fairly consistent humidity (garage is a different story) so I haven't had any problems. I stopped being too concerned, especially considering the fact that my most expensive instruments (piano and double bass) have to sit out and haven't had any issues in the past 15 years. Definitely a concern, but practically speaking houses are pretty stable in my area.
Thanks to all who sent a "like". But I gotta tell you that practice space is not too bad for me alone...but when I bring in the whole band....sheeesh....it's a grind.
I'm sure they could wake you up pretty quick
It's cozy ....
tongue in cheek.
Two Fender Mustangs, I &II. Once I figured the Fuse software out, and use for tracking, nothing compares ,or as simple. With Cool Edit Pro, I can do 128 separate tracks, I'll never ever need that many.
Two of four different Stratocasters..........I've 2 different Yamaha drum machines, 3 different analog keyboards, mandolins, pedal steel...want for nothing
all the space i could claim
We keep a humidity gauge and when the humidity gets below 30% we run a humidifier.
In our spray booth if the humidity gets over 50% we run the dehumidifier to prevent the lacquer from blushing.
if you are in a really dry area it’s always best to keep the guitars in their cases when not being played. The case insulates from quick drastic changes in humidity which can be brutal to a newer instrument that hasn’t aged through several years of environmental changes.
Old guitars that have aged 50plus years generally do not have these issues since the wood has naturally torrefied which makes it ultimately stable through humans temperature changes.
