The Requisite Information For Gearheads


Everybody loves long, detailed gear lists, right?

Null Device records at Submersible Studios.  It’s really just a room in the basement, but as one can tell from reading entries on, we put a bit of work into making it sound decent.   Acoustic paneling, diffusers, monitor stands, the works.  In some ways, acoustic treatment is one of the most important bits of kit in a studio, since if you can’t mix accurately, you can’t get a good mix, period.  But aside from that, we’ve got a chunk of kit we rather enjoy.

A couple of violins that have been in my family for a hundred years

1 God I love this thing

2 Dave Thomas at AA does amazing things to stock chinese mics. This thing is probably n par with mics many times its price. The downside is that shipping from rural British Columbia takes a while.

3 Michael Joly at Oktavamod does a stunning job converting budget mics into the kind of gear that competes with high-end stuff.

4 Possibly the nicest-sounding electric violin I’ve ever gotten my hands on.

5 yeah, I’m kinda into Ned Steinberger’s designs.  The Gibson-made instruments aren’t great, but they’re cheap.  The bass isn’t bad, all things considered.

6 Purchased before Bob Moog got the name back.  He actually answered the phone and took my order, too.  It was a great day.
