Hi guys,

Here are some pictures of my new home studio. I have to do some more work in control room, but the work is getting near the end :)

The control room looks so "EUROPEAN!"
I think that part of the "look" is the AC strip mounted on the wall.
We throw those things on the floor here in the states!
What brand is that 16 track machine?
That is some type that never made it's way to the US.
A Lyrec?

The studio and the instruments somewhat remind me of how Sun Records looks!
Certainly there wasn't ever a Marshall combo there in the old days... :roll:

That is a fun looking space!

Hi thanks :)
As for European look - this AC strip has a short cable, so that's why it ended on the wall, but You are right :)
The machine is Telefunken M15a - German rival of Studer. It was a 16 track 2", but now it is converted to 8 track 1". In many ways it is even better than Studer, but it was not exported so much out of Germany because they had big market in their own country and it was prohibitive expensive. I spoke with a guy from LA and he told me that he knew 2 studios in LA that had them and that he yet have to find a machine that sounds better. I didn't run any A-B tests with my friends A80, but it really sounds very BIG :)

Marshall is a JTM45 so it could have been there in 60s, but of course not in Sun studio during 50s :)

Very nice! The C37 and M15a made my day! Here are a few shots of the M15a I have been compiling. Once again, great job!
