Westlake Village, CA (June 4, 2015)—Guitar Center Professional recently helped Matt Tamisin and his brother Abraham source a console for their Japanski Studio in Athens, GA.
“I knew that if I didn’t get this one, I’d never get a Neve,” says Matt Tamisin, referring to the 24-fader Neve Genesys console that previously resided in Studio E at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. “It was a bit scary,” he continues, talking about what it’s like to buy the most central piece of equipment a studio can have via phone and internet. “But I took the plunge because I’ve been buying from GC Pro for years and every experience has been a good one, including this.”
The Neve Genesys had been acquired by GC Pro’s Hollywood office. “They were doing some ‘house cleaning,’ upgrading some of their rooms, which is something that we helped them with,” explains Brian Overton, GC Pro account manager. “We purchased several really nice pieces of equipment from them, including a pair of TL Audio mic pres. Once we had the console tested, checked out and up on our dedicated pre-owned equipment website, Matt saw it and knew that’s what he wanted. We were able to get it to him cost-effectively, and we’ll be there to back him up when he needs us.”
Tamisin, who has chronicled the arrival and commissioning process of the new desk on a detailed blog, says, “GC Pro has taken good care of me. And I love having a piece of history in my studio, and GC Pro made it happen. It may have been in Studio E at Capitol, but it’s our Studio A console now.”
