my recording studio
I've decided NOT to half-ass or cut any corners on this stuff. I'm at a point in my life where I can afford to do this, so I'm going to do it right the first time.
If the deal I have in the works goes through, I'll own a Washburn electric bass guitar and a good (although used) Peavy bass amp tomorrow. I've played the guitar and I like it. I haven't seen the amp, but if it works, I'm gonna buy it at a sweet price. Peavy makes good amps.
I've ordered the other stuff I need to make my studio complete and I'll get it when the UPS truck shows up. That'll include a couple of really good speakers, a dual-cassette recorder, a CD burner and an amp to power all of it.
I read once where somebody said you can measure the age of a man by the number of expensive toys he owns. This ain't no home-made skateboard I'm setting up here. By the time I'm finished, I'll have well over $2,500 invested in it.
But I can play with it until I die.
Enjoy -- and make sure you make some of your tunes available for us to download & listen to...for free...:)
Or until the BC and her shark lawyer take it from you.
Hi bowleggs, just think about the fun we could have had with this 25 years old. We could made some money. We could have sold some records and tapes, plus peel all the young girls off of us, Cat
I happy that you are putting it together-and hell, 2500 is not that much money anymore-you can't even buy a new motor for a bass boat for 2500 bucks! There was a time when I drank up about half that much every month-damn sure would be nice to have it now.
Don't forget to soundproof the studio - as my grandson did and then the neighbors called the cops. Really.
Sounds like a cool project. Will you blog the contruction process? I'm curious to see what it takes to make a good sound studio.
Don't forget the 4-channel mixer.
Shit. A FOUR CHANNEL MIXER? I can do 64 channels with what I already have.
Think BIG, my man. I outgrew four channels years ago.
Let us know how the studio building goes...I'm in the middle of a project like this myself.
