3Cherokee Studios - Los Angeles

I helped them build their studio out of a barn in Chatsworth. I was good friend of their father Dave. I printed their first chart for the board and was their business cards. At a later date they allowed me to bring young kids from Children's Hospital and Ronald McDonald Inn to watch Rick Nelson and many others. This was something the the kids who all have passed away. I wonder what happened to Tommy at the ranch in C

Best sounding Console ever was the "A-Range" in studio 1 @ Cherokee Studios Hollywood! Note... Also the ugliest console ever... But it had a great sonic personality!

Only studio in the world that came with there own genius. Or four, to be precise. Alex Sadkin, Chris Blackwell, Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare.

My former roomy is a studio drummer and I had a chance to visit the studio for a session he had, and although Capitol is the only top studio I visited, as a mechanical Engineer, those guys were very impressive. The finish product, amazing! 2 thumbs up!
