Silo Recordings

Silo Recordings The Silo is a unique digital and analog recording studio located in central Suffolk County, on Long Island's South Shore. And no, it's not in a silo.

The Silo Studio is the home base of Bill & Delaney Hafener. Its primary purpose is to allow them the space and time to make the sort of music they want to make without time or budget constraints. They also record and produce other talented artists whose music they admire to help them reach their own musical goals.

I finished the soldering yesterday and connected the 16 track to the console. This morning I picked up a box of 8 used reels of tape through a Craig’s List ad for testing. So now begins the testing!

The second new release today is from Anneliese McCarthy, produced and recorded here by Delaney.

Just picked this up from a pawn shop for $400. We’ll fire it up later and see what it needs. Seems like a reasonably priced way go further into the analog world. Stay tuned.

Its #Straturday and we got ourselves a #FenderStratocaster. Nothing too special, just an old MiM #Strat. And it is old, made in 1998. Never been much of a fan of playing the old #Stratocaster, but they do have a certain tone and when you need that sound nothing else will suffice. I’d been looking for an inexpensive #Fender for a while and this one popped up yesterday so now it’s ours. Just in time for Dick Dale’s birthday.

This is a wonderfully crazy little amp called a “Ukulele Amp”. I don’t know if that’s the brand name or what. But it’s covered in tweed and is shaped like a hat box and it works pretty well too. Thanks to Kelsey Sucena for bringing it here.

A mighty nice Ace Tone Solid Ace 10 from the early 1970s. A made in Japan solid state amp for guitar or bass with two 15” speakers, reverb and tremolo. The original warranty card and totally unnecessary VU meter are the icing on the cake.

My friend Jon heard from a friend of his that someone in Lake Ronkonkoma had some musical gear at the curb so he tagged me and a few others in a FB post to give us a heads up. I ran in there and grabbed this budget line Zildjian crash cymbal, a few mic stands and a strong steel stool for studio sitting. Free’s for me!!! Thanks Jon!!!

We have this beastly old Ampeg V4 that is a very loud monster. I enquired about having a master volume installed but before I committed to that I figured I’d check the interwebs for some thoughts. Turns out you can use one of the “EXT AMP” jacks as a master volume by connecting it to a pot. So I made a little box with a pot and look at that, it works. I may still get a MV professionally installed but I’ll work with this for now. @ Silo Recordings

We have quite a few amps here. And they all sound interesting and unique. Some have a great creamy overdrive, a bright crunchy bite, a warm clean tone or a weird vintage solid state fuzz. Some have a rich deep reverb, or a mind bending tremolo. And I’ve used every single one of them on at least one recording. All but one. This one. This Gibson G50-A 1x12 combo from the mid 70s is the most uninspiring amp ever. It’s not interesting in any way, not in a bad way. not in a good way. I use it as a bench.

This is a collection of 4 recordings I made using a digital 4 track Fostex way back when there was still a 55 Chevy and a 72 Chevelle wagon parked where the Silo is now.

Sometimes only the sound of a Strat will do the job, even if it’s some 1980s version with some silly locking wiggle stick and an HSS pickup set up. So long as I can tap the humbucker so it actually sounds like a Strat then we’re good. Because if doesn’t sound like a Strat then why bother putting up with it???

Ronald Gerard was in today continuing work on his upcoming project. Delaney has been producing and recording but she’s in Europe so she graciously allowed me to handle things today. Ronnie dragged his sister Sarah along to sing some harmonies and do some parts with our Hammond organ. We had her try playing the bass pedals by sitting on the floor. Hahaha
