the gear/facilities

We mainly operate out of 2 nyc facilities, but often cut tracks at other studios all over the world.

Gramtastic Mobile is where most basic overdub sessions, tweaking and editing get done. A fully mobile facility, it's mostly parked in a Harlem NYC Townhouse. We've done remote sessions for David Byrne, Universal Records, Bon Jovi, Island Def Jam, and a host of others.

Vintage Neumann, AKG, Shure, and Sennheiser mics complemented by great modern mics like Soundeluxe, Studio Projects, and Audix.
Vintage Neve and modern Presonus mic preampifiers.
Dangerous Music analog and digital summing busses, converters and monitoring gear.
Focal studio monitors.
Tube-Tech compressors.
Instruments - GMS, Vintage Gretsch, Ludwig, Slingerland and Yamaha drums. Vintage K and Modern Zildjian cymbals, custom cymbals and modifications by Spizzichino and Skiba. Loads of percussion including real ethnic instruments, modern instruments by LP and others. Electric guitars by Fender, acoustic guitars by Breedlove.

When a session needs more gear or space than we have uptown, we head down to the world renowned Flux studios. Owned and operated by Fab Dupont, the studio has a great live room and mix/mastering room, both outfitted with an obscene amount of AAA gear, and a great staff.
