Rebuilt Walls, Painted Halls, Gear, Gear, Gear: Fire Update #4
The contractors who are fixing up all of the fire damage are almost done! The walls are up and they are almost done painting. Take a look at the video below for a quick tour of the progress…
At the beginning of next week, they will be finishing up the floor and they will be out the door! At that point, we should be able to start running rehearsals in one of the rooms. We still have a lot of work to finish up next week before the second room is ready for rehearsals and before we are ready to hit the record button. We are still aiming for July 1 as our reopening day, but it may be a few days longer now as it really depends on how quickly the contractors finish up.
Besides construction, this past weekend we were able to start purchasing new gear for the studio. We have a lot of new toys to play with and we sure are excited put them to work! Our new console, an Amek Big, is a 32 channel, fully automated beast! Its got some amazing features and sounds great. Also, you can look forward to seeing some new gear from Manley, Universal Audio, John Hardy Co., Bricasti, Studer, and some other fairly rare and unique pieces of equipment. We will have a fully updated gear list up in the next few days, so keep your eyes open for it!
Expect more frequent updates over the next two weeks, as things are starting to move quickly!
