Finally got back to Asheville NC to finish installing the Rupert Neve Designs 5088 at Citizen Studios. Gar Ragland has moved in! We finished the room acoustics a few months ago and received the console a few weeks ago. All the gear is hooked up and ready to go. I will post final “cleaned up” photos with the cool color changing LED art deco lights sometime soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Very sad to learn that my friend Ben Elliot of Showplace Studios in New Jersey has passed away. Ben was passionate about music and his craft as producer and engineer. He worked with and touched the lives of many musicians. Prayers for his family. Rest in peace Ben. ... See MoreSee Less

Great memories for that particular model! Stay safe David!

Brings back great memories of sharing a pijiu or two in Beijing

Will it be cheaper to purchase it or recap it?

Maybe ours needs a little brother!😝

Ultimate design.

We have spent the last few weeks in Asheville NC working on a new project for Citizen Studios. They will move into this space, which was formerly WWNC radio studios, and used to broadcast live music in the 40’s and 50’s. There is an adjacent studio space, as well as a sister venture on the 1st floor called Citizen Vinyl, which will be a vinyl record pressing plant. The facility will also house a record store, cafe, and small performance area. We are excited to be involved with this project. I will post finished photos when I return there next month. ...

Had a great trip to CA. Spent a couple of weeks replacing bad capacitors in the AMEK 9098i at “The Hive” for the band 311. A big thank you to Mike Brady and Jason Walters for all their help. It was allot of hard work and I could not have done it without them!
I left Burbank and flew to Sacramento to see Will Mullins in Penryn. I took care of an issue or two on his AMEK Rembrandt and flew home late Tuesday night. Happy to be back in TN for now.
Next trip, NC!

Glad you are back home safely

Awesome sounding desk, had some music mix through one at SAINTS PLACE in NJ. KILLER!!!

Wow,, that is awesome,, you are truly Super Dave..

Those guys are super cool, I am sure you had a good hang !

Enjoying the warm weather of CA! Spent the last week visiting and repairing consoles for David Boucher & Mitchell Froom, Wyn Davis at Total Access, Clark Germain, Mark Viner, Raul Avalos, and Omar Rosales, plus I got to spend a few days with Andrew Fletcher and hang out at NAMM!
Today I am finishing up some repairs and upgrades for the incomparable Joe Vannelli on his AMEK G2520. This record made a huge impression on me as a young musician. It and many of their others are in my musical collection! Blessed to be able to work with all these folks!

It has been a very busy fall for TAS! I have been behind in posting pictures of my travels, but I have visited clients old and new in PA, NJ, NY, DC, VA, NC, SC, GA, TN, MS in the last few months. Time for a couple of days at home and an oil change!
Early 2020 shows no sign of slowing down, with several ongoing design projects as well as repair trips to CA and TX. Looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! ... See MoreSee Less

Finally home after a few weeks in Florida. Started off with a couple of days of much needed R&R with Bonnie Lake at Madeira Beach.
Worked on consoles for and got to visit with: Erik Rutan at Mana Recording, Rob, Monkey, and Surfer Dude Man at Powerstation Studios, Willie Lindo at Heavybeat Records, Luc Beaulac at Evermore Sound Studios, Javier at Sunspots Productions, David Mikael at Studiolive USA, and Jim Devito at Retrophonics Studio. It was great to see them all!
On the way home I stopped in Hilton Head Island and visited my longtime friend, artist, and drummer Charles Grace.

There was some sadness on this trip, as I learned of the passing of a friend and a truly genius tech named Norman Druce. His company is Atomic Instruments. There was a celebration of life in his honor today in Detroit. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.

I am truly lucky to get to meet, make friends with, and work with people in the music industry. I hope I am able to continue to do so for many years to come.

Rock on!
