New Studio Toys!

First update in a while due to our website having rather bizarrely been temporarily taken over by an unsavoury extremist organization. But we're back now with the good news that we have some new toys to play with in the studio.
Graeme Ronald from Remember Remember has very generously donated his wonderful Roland Juno 6 analog synth to our collection of studio synths (which include a Korg MS10 and Roland SH-101). Thanks Graeme!
We also have a lovely new set of MPA analog valve pre-amps, a fantastic DBX 165A compressor from the late 1970's, and our Roland RE-150 Space Echo tape delay unit has just been refurbished with brand new heads.
And finally a big thanks to Tom-Leyland-Collins for helping us get our plate reverb unit up and working to add to our existing Spring Reverb unit.
