Studio A

Studio A is a 24 x 24 ft black box-style room with alternating air-gapped absorption and diffusion panels.  The floor surface is 5mm stage mahogany, coated in Roscoe Stage Black, floating on a layer of acoustical Green Glue(TM).    Full and half-height 10" rolling acoustic baffles allow creation of any booth or desired differentiation of the large space. 

Additionally, Studio A is home to a Yamaha GH-1 acoustic grand piano. 

"At 5’3″ in length, the GH-1 is large enough to provide a full and strong tone while taking up a small amount of room. It could quite possibly be the ideal professional-grade piano for a small-room setting. It’s a very satisfying musical instrument, with a classic Yamaha tone: Crisp and clear, but with a deep and resonant bass that provides ample body."
