Located in New York City’s multimedia and entertainment complex, the Manhattan Center, The Fuse Box studio features a Neve VR series 72-channel console and access to several generously sized recording spaces, including the Hammerstein. Hardgroove also has on hand multi-instrument microphones such as the Sennheiser MD 421 and the Neumann TLM 103.

In addition to being the guitarist, band director and producer of Public Enemy, Hardgroove previously owned a studio in Santa Fe, NM where he began broadcasting his radio show several years ago. He is a New York City native who, in his younger days, worked as an assistant at Manhattan Center many years ago.

"When I grew up, my recording experiences were rich and memorable because the studios centered on the love of music--from the studio manager, to the engineer, to the facility itself," he recalls. "When I spoke to Sennheiser about what I was trying to do, they immediately understood what I was trying to achieve. Sennheiser and Neumann are brands I have known since my childhood; they have always been there for me and they continue to make products that I trust."

Built in 1906 by theatre impresario Oscar Hammerstein I and originally known as The Manhattan Opera House, Manhattan Center is a landmark multimedia facility where media and entertainment converge. In addition to housing recording studios, television studios and post-production facilities, it is also home to two of Manhattan's most unique recording spaces: the Hammerstein and The Grand. Back in 1926, it served as the scoring stage for Don Juan, the film industry's first motion picture with a synchronized, pre-recorded soundtrack.

* Sennheiser MKH 8020
