RocketSpace is open so hurry up and start booking the prime spots before it’s too late! As it stands, studio 1 is completed and studio 3 is getting finishing touches. Studio 2 is waiting on the next equipment shipment and then it will be ready. Studio 4 is serving as a surrogate repair room and gear organization area while we prepare the three larger studios for customers. So for now, let’s talk about equipment shall we?
It is lookin' mighty fine in studio 1. Nice gear and comfy seating.
Kate decided to go with Alto powered P/A monitors (800 watts each). AKG D5 mics were selected over Shure SM58 for their hotter clarity and super cardioid capsule design. Mixers and stands are available in each room as well. We are waiting on P/A speaker stands so we are improvising in the mean time, as you can see in Studio 3.
Studio 3 is in 2nd place for being completed after studio 1. We parked the Ludwig kit in there for the time being.
Regarding guitars, Marshall 4×12 cabinets are included if you don’t want to lug your own cabinets in. There is also a Marshall 100 watt tube head and a 30 watt Orange head available for rent for a small additional fee. A Fender Hot Rod Deluxe is also available. There are a few Acoustic 4×10 bass cabinets that are available free of charge and studio 1 currently has a 300 watt Ampeg mini half stack bass rig if you literally just want to show up with your bass guitar, but call ahead to make sure it is available before leaving your bass amp behind.
Studio 2 is getting its foam installed and waiting for the next shipment of drums and then its moment will come!
There is a 5 piece Pacific drum set in studio 1. Studio 2 will also feature a Pacific drum kit as soon as we get the next order dropped on the doorstep. Both kits will have two crash cymbals and one ride. Studio 3 currently has the Ludgwig classic 4 piece with a single crash and ride. Studio 4 will have a classic 5 piece Yamaha kit that we are currently building.
Studio 4 is being used to repair equipment and organize gear while we set up the three larger studios.
Kate also rents out P/A systems for events, so ask her about that if you have the need for a really good P/A system. Music lesson instructors — make sure to start booking your times as soon as you can since space is going to fill up pretty quick in the next month or so. I promise the next update won’t be as distant as this one was. We have been busy, what can I say?
