Recorded this live version of “Where We Are Sometimes” with @foreverhoneyband back in the old days when people could do these sorts of things. This also happens to be my favorite tune on their new EP “Pre-Mortem High” — if you haven’t listened yet, please do, it’s so good! Video magic by the legend: @abnerjamesvideo

The Beatles used these waffle irons to record drums so naturally we do too. The Coles 4038 sound delicious on pretty much everything we put them on, so they get used around here quite a bit!

One of our go to amps — this Fender Vibrolux has made an appearance on pretty much every guitar based record we’ve made here. Our friend @patkauffmanelectronics has taken such good care of it over the years and has it totally dialed in.

Always one of our favorite guitars. Our Gibson Les Paul 1959 VOS is a super versatile instrument. Les Paul’s have a reputation as rock and roll machines, but with the volume rolled off it delivers everything from shimmering, glassy clean tones to chime and twang

Just added this pair of vintage Neumann KM84’s to the mic locker and could not be more stoked! Recorded some acoustic guitar to try them out and they sound amazing. A big thanks to Joel at @ecstaticelectric for tracking these down for me. Audiophile PSA: If you need great mics — he’s the guy you want to talk to. Bought my first Neumann from him over a decade ago and he’s been an incredible resource for all things audio as well as keeping my mics here in top shape over the years. #degrawsound #brooklyn #recordingstudio #brooklynrecordingstudio #vintagegear #vintagemicrophone #neumannmicrophones #neumannkm84 #musicproducer #musicproduction

Been getting seriously into all the UAD plugins lately, but still love having the SSL in the rack. Before going down the plugin rabbit hole, this beast of a compressor was glued to my mix bus for years.

One of my favorite guitars we have — a 1965 Gibson J-45. It’s hard to put this guitar down — resonates and records beautifully, and has so many songs in it (if you believe in that sort of thing). #degrawsound #brooklynrecordingstudio #flattopfriday #gibson #gibsonguitars #vintagegibson #j45 #vintageguitar #vintageguitars #recordingstudio #vintagegear #musicproduction

It always feels great to sit down behind our Trident console and make records. When we were searching for a console for our studio we honed in on the Trident’s because some of our favorite records from Spoon to the Dap Kings were made on these boards. This particular console has a bit of history to it as well, it was owned by James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins) and Adam Schelsinger (Fountains of Wayne) at their studio Stratosphere Sound before we acquired it in 2012. 📸 @drewreynolds_photo #degrawsound #brooklynrecordingstudio #recordingstudio #faderfriday #vintagegear #recordingconsole #musicproduction #musicproducer
