Equipment

The Equipment list is constantly growing and less constantly updated here; if there’s something extra you need we may already have it and if not we can probably borrow or hire it in for you. If you’re relying on a specific guitar amp being here please check with us first as several are 40+ years old and divide their time equally between the studio and the repair shop. For recent sessions, equipment additions, on-going construction developments, music industry articles and bands we like take a look here.
