Electric Lady: Studio A

Besides its capacity for large orchestras and live-band set-ups, Studio “A” has witnessed origins of the most acclaimed recordings in rock and roll history, making it our most famed and sought after room.

Studio “A” is home to a fully restored Neve 8078 – a hand-wired analogue console that as recently as 2011 absorbed 2500 hours of highly skilled labor, utilizing only the highest-end components. The console was later outfitted with Martin Sound Flying Faders II.

The studio’s live room boasts an impressive collection of vintage microphones, instruments, and amps, as well as an almost palpable history. It is our largest and most versatile space.

Live Room: 35' x 38'

Control Room: 16' x 26'
