Grass Lake

After years of working as house engineer at It's A Secret in Minneapolis, I have branched out and started a studio of my own. I am calling it Grass Lake (formerly Black Walnut). Grass Lake has one large tracking room (25'x17') and a control room (17'x9').


At present, the studio boasts a Universal Audio Apollo 16 interface, outboard gear by Universal Audio, Neve, SSL, Empirical Labs, Dangerous Audio and Kush Audio. The microphone locker is slowly growing with an ample assortment of quality microphones. In addition to the recording gear, BW also boasts a Baldwin Console Piano with built-in damper, several acoustic guitars, bass guitar, amplifiers, wurlitzer, fender rhodes bass piano, xylophone and glockenspiel.
