snake or wall mounted connections

i just bought this place and it needs some updating. The previous owner was just an investor and they pulled all of the snake lines out and left nothing to fish new ones through.... nice of them tutt

does any one out here in slut land have any suggestions on using either wall mounted connections from the control room to the live room or just using a snake... and if so, what brand is best?

my gues would be to use wall mounted connections from the wall under the glass passing through to the live room and another into the vocal booth.

here are some pics to help

control room


live room 1


live room 2/vocal booth


any help at all would make me like you more

I would definitely go with mic blocks mounted in the wall. You can get either groups of 6 mic in's and 3 phone outs or 8 mic in's 4 phone outs etc. and mount 1 on each of the 4 walls. This keeps things a lot neater and looks more professional.

and don't forget to put at least 2 in your vocal booth and 6 in your drum booth if you have one...

ps... nice looking space! hope you enjoy it!!

it used to be Anthem Recording back in mid to late 90's, it changed hands again, but i don't know the name. A real estate investor bought it in 2003 and pretty much just let it sit. John Gibson at Ear.net helped in the design of the place back when it was originaly done. He's helping me outfit it again since he knows the rooms so well.

oh and yes, it's in phoenix

Sweet...I never worked there when I lived in Phoenix, but it looks like it has a lot of potential. What part of town is it in?

If you really are in a bind for running cable, you could always make a surface mount box on the wall, like a stage box that mounts flat on the wall but with some trim or something and run conduit on the wall wherever it needs to run... I don't mind exposed conduit.... but if it doesn't fit your vibe, screw that idea.

its off of 35th ave and Bell road - kinda north phoenix area. it just needs to be treated for acoustics again. the previous owners took all that too.

I'm pretty excited about it, i didn't want to have to spend 6 months doing a build out.

that actually is a good idea. conduit can be hidden. i'll just have to watch a few hours of DIY or HGTV and I'm sure i'll get and idea on how to hide it. my wife has my big screen locked on those decorating shows.
