Got some "finished" photos from Gar Ragland at Citizen Studios in Asheville NC. The renovated WWNC radio studio worked great as the control room for Gar and the way he works and records. The Rupert Neve Designs 5088 and the ATC speakers brought it all together. The large adjacent space is wired and ready to record in, and the venue on the first floor will be as well, once that renovation is completed. There will be Citizen Vinyl, a vinyl pressing facility that can be viewed by visitors, as well as a record store on the first floor as well. It has been a great project to be involved with! ...

The last few weeks has been busy with shop repairs on some Neve rack modules, AMEK Media 51 module recaps, an MPS 15 PSU repair or two, and a trip to Atlanta for a studio construction site visit. I also did an automation repair at Grey Cat Sound for Patrick Phillips on his 60 channel Media 51 in Peachtree City, GA. This next week... more shop repairs and acoustical design. Happy to be busy!

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

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!
