King Sound Studio - Paducah, KY

Just throwing my hat in to the pile.
It's not much yet, but if you hang around awhile, it might be worth the wait.

I'll be in the area in a month or so so I'll stop by and stuff myself.

Looking forward to seeing your build progress.

The electrician is finishing up rewiring today and tomorrow while we bring down the metal framing to replace with wood.

Framing starts Monday, so HOPEFULLY, in a month we'll have something to look at. If you're here and want to swing by to check it out, just let me know!

Construction is so much slower than demo! ..But we're moving along.



We sealed up the outside walls with a material called Drylok. Since the humidity in Kentucky is a constant 120%, the cinder blocks were literally sweating in January.



We're having to build this wall up to the ceiling to help with the soundproofing. While looking at the blueprint, it's the wall on the far right. The wall will eventually be clipped, double dry-walled, and green glued. Things should start picking up soon.

This is the only wall that has anything on the other side of it. We're in the process of adding plywood, whisper clips, sheetrock, green glue and then another layer of sheetrock. We're actually a lot further than this, and the results are phenomenal!

Eventually, things will start taking shape and hopefully we'll get some more interesting pictures. We're getting there...slowly but surely.

Finished that ridiculous 16 foot wall and began laying out the individual walls before we called a week.

Update:

So, I should mention that construction has been somewhat slow-going since it's just myself and the contractor. I really wanted to be a part of the construction process and I know my inexperience in construction has been holding us back a little bit, but I'm enjoying learning about the construction process and I'm sure, in the end, I'll be glad I played a role in building it.

We framed all of the walls in a day (12 hour day, and I'm absolutely dead). Each room is being built separate from each other, green glued and whisper clipped. Below I've included a picture of the gap between on of the walls and the outside cinder block wall.

It's taking shape!

Another week down. This week we hung the rafters and began hanging lighting and running electricity. Next week we finish dry walling, running cabling, and who knows what else. We've also got an incredible (ly huge!) desk being built and can't wait to get it in.

Just a little bit of gear.

Below are my lonely mic pres longing for our custom desk to be finished.
We've got an Avalon AD2022, Universal Audio 4-710d, Focusrite Octopre MK II Dynamic (may be the weakest link in the bunch, but I need SOMETHING to record toms with, you know??), and an Avalon 747.

All of this is running through an RME Fireface UFX in to a Dangerous D Box.

We've got a ton of other mics laying around, the CV-12's and the Royer r-122 are the newest additions though. Still trying to muster the courage (and money) to possibly pick up a u87.

Had a couple days break from construction and was able to pick up this custom made Marshall JMP 50 watt head. We've got a vintage shop here in Kentucky that only deals with instruments and amps 20 years old or older and the owner tracked this one down for me. You don't even want to know how cheap I got it.

Has brand new tubes, and just sings. We're really looking forward to adding this in the studio.

Finished running all of the cable. We began insulation, installing clips and hat channel getting ready for sheet rock this week.

Over the weekend, we went down to Nashville to pick up a '90 Fender Twin and accidentally came back with a Vox ac4tv, Orange Dark Terror (also have a Dual Terror) and a Marshall JCM 900. I know there's a lot of hate out there for the 900's, but man, this thing melts faces!

We also updated our website: http://www.kingsoundstudio.com

Great progress!

I used to have a JMP-50. Kinda wish I hadn't sold it.

Awesome! Looks like things are progressing nicely! Kudos to you on wanting to be a part of the construction process! If you haven't started feeling the EXTREME satisfaction, you will soon!!

So with the hat channel and clips you installed, what spacing did you decide on for between the hat channel? Also I noticed that you offset the clips. What was the deciding factor in offsetting vs not offsetting in your situation? In my mind, it makes more sense to offset the clips as you have, but I have seen other builds where the clips we not offset. What are your thoughts??

This one doesn't do crunch very well, but the clean tones are out of this world. I was a little worried about the custom cab affecting the resellability..but I can't imagine ever wanting to get rid of it. It's just so nice looking.

You know, I don't think we put too much thought in to offsetting the clips. I feel like every Youtube install video we watched had offsetting clips. I'm sure at some point they mentioned the purpose of it, but if so, it was in one ear and out the other. I imagine it has to do with both securing the sheet rock evenly and dispersing/minimizing the transference of soundwaves.

Our hat channel in MOST places is 2 feet a part. Because of weird shaped rooms, sometimes they're closer (on the ceiling especially to bypass air ducts and lighting).

Is my ignorance showing?

While at dinner tonight, I got a scathing text message from our contractor for my lack of clip knowledge. I've brought shame upon him.

The idea behind offsetting the clips helps to disburse the load and the overall idea is to maximize spacing between clips which keeps the total number of contact points down and further away from one another.

We walked in to the booth today when everyone left and even with a wide open door frame and no sheet rock on the wall, you could instantly hear the absorption of the room. Once we add the doors (dual sliding glass doors) and the two layers of sheetrock with the green glue, it should be dead silent.

We got our (current) amps all together in a room for a quick photo shoot. Nothing makes a better backdrop than a bajillion fabric samples.

Insulation on the wall are done. The guys are in tomorrow to blow insulation in the ceiling and then we're sheetrocking, green gluing, and sheetrocking this biznatch.

GOOD NEWS! Area rugs have been ordered. We really think they'll tie the live room together, as long as some oriental man doesn't pee on them.
