Nice gear at Coast, nice people too, but you can't hear a damned thing in that cockpit style control room.

david denny is a great guy for gear rental, but not sure what gear he currently has. I've rented from him for years...

A really Good Mix Studio is San Francisco Soundworks. They are Sounth of Market and have a great vibe, good selection of equipment (9000J) and run by a very cool and talented Owner producer, Tony Espinoza

Actually, Toast is now gone, and that is the studio that has reverted back to its former identity as Coast (the Putnam-designed room, now with the rehabbing Neve V)... The other rooms are now mastering suites.

As for Different Fur, I thought I heard that they closed sometime last year... I hope I'm wrong.

Same with the 9098 at "D".. Haven't talked to Joel in a while, but last time I was there, so was the console.

As for rental gear -- Stephen Jarvis has oodles of high-end goodies. PM me for his contact info -- I don't think he's got a website.

Hmmm, live and learn. It's been a few years since I was last there. That room has certainly been around the block

Yeah you can score crack and get a cheap blowjob on your lunchbreak.

Seriously though, I haven't worked there since the 1990s but I always had a good experience there. Don't know what it's like now.

On the topic of SF studios, what ever happened to Greg Freeman after Lowdown got razed to build pacbell park? I liked his studio.

Yeah, they put the business and the building for sale. I think it's a techno label that's now working out of there - they still have the board, but everything else is different.

Another studio down for the count....

Somewhat OT (don't want to start a new thread) to you good guys who know the area:
A friend of mine is leaving this weekend for 3 weeks near Reno to get his new CD mixed at Sylvia Massy's place.
He's looking for a pre 74' (four screws/bolts) Fender P-bass to buy.
Does anyone know any good places in the LA/SF/north CA area to look for this gem?
Thanks!!

Thanks, Neve 1073.
Found their website. No P-bass in stock, but I'll keep looking.

Good luck.
