Hi,My name is Toshio.I am the representative of our studio.
I dreamed for many years to have our own recording studio in Tokyo.
Not a regular studio but a nice "true" vintage studio.
In Japan there are many studios claimed that
there are real vintage studios,but from my point of
view,no one is the "TRUE" vintage studio.
I think the best way to pick up some emotional signal made by a human being's brain,
is by using a nice tube gear.
Electron tubes do some reaction when we send an emotional signal.
Not by a transisitor,not by a digital tech.
So I guess the best way is using nice tube mics
or some vintage mics & tube EQ & tube tape machine.
We do our recording with using all of them.
I was amazed by the result!
The emotion of all musician came right away to me and I was deeply impressed by.
I also have A-DAT and some HARD DISK RECORDER.
I compare this 2 recording by blind test.For 100% the result was very clear.
I choose for every time the tube sounds!
I use my equipments in full condition.I can do some repair for microphones,tube gear,tapemachine,guitar,piano....etc.
I worked for many years in a small factory where I did repair of many vintage equipments.
The factory's name is "SUNNY SIDE SOUNDS".They are still in Tokyo and do many repair now.
The lifetime for a human being is not so long.Only 70...80 years about.
And the period when we can do some nice work is even shorter.
I guess only 40 to 50 years.
Many equipments of mine are these ages.But they are still in excellent condition.
I feel some responsibility to do some thing for our future,for our childrens.
I am not a politician,not a scientist...but I am a musician!!!
I decided to make many many good sounds using tube gears.I am very serious.
I hope that many people thinking like me,make some contact to eachother
and a friendship grown little by little all over the world.
If you are interested about our recording system,and if you want to make contact with us,
Please send us an E-mail.I'll reply as quickly as possible.
