The Smoakstack is filled with 3000 square feet of vintage instruments and recording equipment (including over thirty guitars, century old pianos and organs, tube microphones, and a 2” tape machine just to name a few pieces). The Smoakstack lets Paul transition his love of old-school recordings, vintage gear, and techniques into the creation of new records. His passion is to make a comfortable, creative environment where artists can relax and capture a vibe onto their albums.
The Smoakstack (formerly Platinum Lab) was designed by world renowned studio designer Chris Huston (The Sound Kitchen, Tom Petty, Michael McDonald). The control room monitoring was designed and tuned by Carl Tatz using his Phantom Focus System.
