Cowboy Technical Services Recording Rig

Cowboy Technical Services Recording Rig Analog/Digital Workshop Style Recording Studio.
(35)

Cowboy Technical Services Recording Rig was established in 1999 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as the workshop style recording studio of Producer/Guitarist Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, Engineer/Producer Tim Hatfield. We put together a very comfortable place to record and mix music. We work with a great collection of recording gear and instruments, vintage and modern, analog and digital featuring the fully loaded 24x32 BURL Mothership convertors. We also offer digital remote and location recording services with the Cowboy Technical Services Remote Rig. We are set up in the “One Room Plus” configuration with 1 isolation room and 2 additional isolation cabinets. We have added a lot of new features including the fantastic Private Q personal mixing headphone system and a 75 year old Steinway grand piano. Cowboy Technical just moved from Williamsburg to Greenpoint. We are officially up and running as of March 16.2016.
