Here’s “Boxes” from my album, “Ups & Downs.” (full version on Facebook - link in bio). I’m playing the brand new Nova Ukulele by Enya. Made from carbon fiber, it’s as durable as it is beautiful and comes in a range of colors. Available soon internationally! Contact @enyamusicofficial for details and check out the giveaway they are running right now!

Happy Birthday Pete Townshend!
.
This is some of our windmill-friendly equipment. Our @GibsonCustom Pete Townshend Les Paul Deluxe model is a limited edition (only 75 made) reissue was one of Pete’s main touring guitars in the 1970s. It is built like a 70s-era Les Paul (pancake body, volute, mini-humbuckers, three-piece body/neck) but with a @DiMarzio Super Distortion added in the middle position. The extra switches are for the DiMarzio, letting you tap the coil, flip phase, or deactivate the mini humbuckers. A tone control knob is sacrificed to give each pickup its own volume control, and the blending options combined with the switching system create a variety of beautiful and unusual Les Paul tones.
.
The vintage @Fender Bandmaster is the sound of Who’s Next. You can hear this amp cranked on Won’t Get Fooled Again. After seeing countless live pictures of The Who in front of walls of Marshall or Hiwatt 4x12 stacks, it might be a surprise to discover such an anthemic song was recorded with a single 26 watt 3x10 combo. But when you crank this amp and pair it with a good mic and preamp, you’ve got a mean, midrangey overdrive recorded sound that is the size of Madison Square Garden.

New to the studio:
1953 Gibson J-185

We’re really excited about our latest addition to the studio's guitar locker. The J-185 is among Gibson’s rarest flattops ever, with fewer than 1000 made during its production run from 1951-1959.

The J-185, Gibson’s second most expensive flattop at the time, sold for 1/3 less than the top of the line J-200 by being slightly smaller and featuring fewer of Gibson's fanciest cosmetic appointments (no mustache bridge, different inlays), but was similar in having the same shape and wood compliments (spruce top, flame maple back/sides, rosewood bridge/fretboard but with mahogany neck rather than the J-200’s maple neck). However, Gibson barely marketed it, so there was little awareness and demand for the J-185 during this pre-internet era.

Eventually, the J-185 was discovered to be a stellar guitar unto itself, and proved to be a superior recording guitar to the J-200, because its smaller size made it less woofy while also punchier and clearer than a J-200 in a mix. With so few having ever been made, they are hardly a widely used recording tool, but they’re known to be one of the best ever for recording. Which makes it a perfect addition to the studio collection:)

We are fortunate enough to have this well-worn single-owner example to make available for your recordings. Despite its relic’ed appearance, we can say that this is one of the most easy to play, cleanest-sounding, most balanced guitars we’ve ever played, up and down the neck, and we’ve played a lot of guitars.

Available now for you to use on your recordings!

Special thanks to Rudy's Music for this incredibly special instrument!

Kind of a geeky one, but the original mic clip on the Sennheiser 421 is not exactly what one would call a “good” design. They’ll droop during a session and then you’re recording the floor rather than the source. Especially with 40 year old ones like ours. But now they’ll stay put on a standard Shure mic clip, thanks to these lovey adapters. Excited to put these microphones back in rotation! 🎤🎤🎤

New Gear Alert!

As you know, we at The Ice Plant enjoy combining the classic and vintage with the state-of-the-art. In that spirit, we proudly announce, starting today:

The Ice Plant is now officially the world’s FIRST Commodore 64-based recording studio!

It wasn’t easy. It took a LOT of coding to port Pro Tools Ultimate down to the C64 format. 1000+ floppy disks just to do the installation. Also, we got the boot time down to 17 hours.

Of course, being we already have the iMac Pro, we will use it as the video screen for the C64. The 5K monitor BRILLIANTLY displays the 320x200 video. And with its support for 1 billion colors, it really hones in on the 16 that the Commodore is actually capable of producing. The 4:3 aspect ratio will take those of a certain age down memory lane, back to a simpler time when TV screens were smaller, while also bulkier.

The memory reduction from 32 gigabytes to 64 kilobytes while exponential, is barely noticeable, as is the reduction of storage space from 8 terabytes down to .75 megabyte floppy disks.

And of course there’s the SOUND! Our Commodore 64’s audio engine can take all incoming audio, as high as 192kHz/32-bit floating point, and cram it down to 15kHz/8-bit resolution, guaranteeing the lush, pixelated, very semi-approximate sound you can only achieve from C64 technology.

We are currently working out how to record more than 10 seconds of audio at a time, but once we do, we might also have received our shipment of blank floppies!💾📦

Stay tuned, our first song tracked and mixed on the new system will be posted tomorrow!
