Studio A

Studio A is Hyde Street Studios’ flagship room, with incredible gear and recording capabilities. It houses one of the cleanest, warmest sounding consoles ever made. Studio A’s vintage Neve 8038 console was brought over from England and specially modified to fit Hyde Street’s needs. It’s now an entirely discrete, Class A console loaded with some of the nicest mic pres and EQs that you’ll ever hear.
With two isolation rooms and tie lines between, Studio A is a popular option for recording a full band all at once in the same room. The iconic white Yamaha grand piano and Hammond B3 organ with Leslie Speaker add the finishing touches to this world-class room.
Artists who have recorded in Studio A include: Train, Cake, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Dwight Yokam, Santana, George Clinton, Toots Hibbert, Willie Nelson, Grateful Dead, Grace Slick, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Pointer Sisters, Tower of Power, Zigaboo Modeliste, Jerry Garcia Band, Chris Isaak
