The real strength of GWRR is the great sounding drum room, the free living space, and the overall recording environment. That said, I am slowly putting together a pretty extensive collection of high-end gear to help me toward my goal of giving my clients the best sounding analog recordings possible.
If you are seeking a specific piece of gear let me know. I will either buy it or rent it at my cost.
Studer A820 2-inch 24 Track
ATR 102 1/2-inch 2 Track
Tonelux - 26 inputs plus 4 stereo aux returns. (Pics coming soon.)
Big: Tannoy FSM 2x15 Soffited, powered by a Yamaha 2200
Medium: KRK V88 Self-powered
Headphones: Sennheiser HD280 Pro and Shure 440. Pick the ones you feel are most comfy and sound the best to you.
(Our headphone system sounds great, by the way. We trashed the Furman "build your own mix" system and installed a much better sounding, simpler solution. Two mixes are powered by a pair of Yamaha 2200s. And the fact that the system is fed via the discrete and transformer balanced Tonelux aux sends and masters does not hurt.)
