Steve Albini to Auction "In Utero" Microphones on Reverb

Oh boy. Now this could get interesting real quickly. Recording Engineer Steve Albini is getting ready to Auction off 3 Microphones used on Nirvana's In Utero Album. 2 of them were used as Drum Overheads on Dave Grohl's kit, the other was Kurt Cobain's vocal mic. My honest guess, is that the vocal mic used (EV PL20), which is usually in the price range of $300-$500 could easily fetch $30,000 or more. Link to Article below.

The microphones were used to record Kurt Cobain's vocals and Dave Grohl's drums.

Latest additions to the #rauncholaproductions recording studio. A nice assortment of bongos, congas, framedrums, doumbeks, and several other percussion instruments. After making a few records it turns out you can never have enough of these toys in your arsenal. And often times it turns out that these are the little gadgets that might just fill in what was missing all along. Give us a call and schedule an appointment for a tour of all the gear we have at our disposal for your next session. #gonbops #latinpercussion #groverpro #gearporn #vintagegear #recordingstudio #framedrums #doumbek #liveroom #eyecandy #richmansor #meinl #djembe #shekere #bellydance #drums #percussion #nopluginsneeded #nothinliketherealthing

I haven't posted in a while, but rest assured all is well. I've been spending much time on my own personal music projects this year. Sometime early in 2017 my band should have a record released. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime i've added a couple nice pieces to the Raunchola Productions studio. First is an AKG BX20 Reverb Tank. Long considered the "Holy Grail" of reverb tanks, it's a rare unit to see these days as very few studios have them, much less afford them. It's a whopping 43 inches tall. But most that are familiar with it will tell you nothing quite sounds like it. And second, a Roland RE-201 Space Echo. These units are also considered the "Holy Grail"
Of tape based echo units, and really need no introduction. I'll be having some deals for recording time early in 2017. Be sure to contact me for rates & availability.
"Happy New Year"

In the ever so grueling and continually difficult industry of the world of music we'd like to wish a Happy Father's day to those musicians/artists/singers/producers/engineers etc. that work around the clock day to day and sometimes week to week and month to month away from home and friends and family to better provide for those under their care, that sometimes sacrifice the most cherished things in life (trips, college, more money, friends & family, birthday parties, etc.) to further their artistry in the hopes of living a better life for themselves and those inspired by their works. It's important that that be acknowledged from time to time and not only by those that are judging some random contest, me personally (Rich here) i'm all too familiar with that struggle. Keep on pluggin' folks, and remember, we are always available to record, produce, engineer, demo out or collaborate on your next project. We value the fact that you come to us for whatever the reasons may be and always strive to prove just how much the music you bring to us means to us and those that will ultimately hear the music. Happy Father's Day!

Until you put a decent microphone on what may be considered a "Not So Loud" instrument such as an Ocean Drum pictured here, or a Shaker, Cabasa, Tambourine, etc. you can never truly hear or understand just how big of a difference these instruments can make in the dynamics of even the loudest and heaviest sounding types of music. #rauncholaproductions is loaded with tons of obscure percussion instruments and more for you to add on to your bands next record including a custom made wind gong. Give us a shout through our contact number or email and lets discuss your next project. A big thanks to our good friend Gordo here (The Embalmers, Bachata Surf) for being in the pic. #recordingstudio #richmansor #embalmerslife #oceandrum #shuresm81 #windgong #bachatasurf

Welcome To The D Jack Endino & Chris Hanzsek

"Raunchola Productions" and "Welcome To The D" were proud and honored to release this episode earlier this year. We felt compelled to share it again to those who have not yet seen this interview or even know about it. In our opinion, easily the best interview ever with these guys and for the first time ever both Jack Endino and Chris Hanzsek are on the screen together discussing the early years in Seattle Pre-Grunge, then how it all started forming together, and lastly the culmination of it all. Also much discussed was the art of Producing/Engineering, Analog vs Digital, etc... and much more. For those that are die hard fans of Chris and Jack in particular we encourage you to watch this episode, grab a box of popcorn with you.

Shot on location in Soundhouse Studios in the Ballard District of Seattle, WA Jack Endino and Chris Hanzsek!! are considered by many the "Godfathers of Grunge", having recorded bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Melvins etc..and more. Jack and Chris are two of the most respected and professional people in the music biz and have been active in the industry since the Mid 1980's.

Known primarily as the guys behind many of local Seattle Record Label "Sub Pop's releases in the late 80's and early 90's. They remain to this day two of the few from that genre that still remain active, alive and well and have gone on to far supersede some of their counterparts. If you get a chance to work with them you'll see why there still in business after thirty years.

So without further adieu we welcome you to watch this very exciting episode on "Welcome to the D", and for me personally my favorite episode of all the ones we've shot in the last few years
Enjoy...

"Slight Return" album finally out after a long and much anticipated release date. We are very fond of this record and the way it came out, it took nearly a year to complete. But was well worth it. It was a monumental experience, A lot of our favorite musicians and producers are all on this record. A Lot of Funk, Rock, A bit of Grunge, and the personnel is second to none. Thanks to all of those that took part in this and helped out in making it something we have much pride in.#slightreturn #richmansor #rauncholaproductions #jackendino #jimdiamond #ghettorecorders #alansanderson #georgeclinton #denniscoffey #daveypattison #chrishanzsek #soundhouserecording #welcometothed #funk #rock #classicrock #grunge #analog #billycox #melaniemonsters #megynhermez #bigk
