The Studio

control room

Studio 132 was designed by architects from all over the bay and tuned by Bob Hodas. It consists of a control room (17X 12), a 9 X 8 drum room, a 5 X 4 vocal booth, and even a closet where we often mic an amp. All rooms feature beautiful hardwood floors with or without area rugs, and each room is available for recording
