World Class Recording Gear for Your Project

Our studio has hand selected each piece of analog and digital equipment with a simple goal: To maximize the quality of your projects. Our selection of microphones and preamps, along with 16 track simultaneous recording capability, provide ample flexibility to tailor the session just for you.  We are heavily invested in high quality D/A converters, and feature analog summing.  All this translates to top level recordings and mixes.  The custom acoustic treatments, and state of the art monitors in our control room mean that when it sounds great here, it sounds great everywhere.

We get world-class drum tones at SnareBuzz Studios and we’ve been recognized for this in Recording Magazine!   How you might ask?   We have Brady kits in our studio which are always tuned and ready to roar.   We also have a selection of new & vintage cymbals as well!

Check out a few of our favorite pieces of gear in the gallery.  A more comprehensive gear list is also included below.
