So many of you have talked to us about the impact that the many records recorded at London Bridge Studios have made on your lives (and now even some of your children's lives). The technical heart of the studio is our one of a kind hand-bulit 1970's Vintage Neve console. This is the very console every single one of those records near and dear to your (and our) hearts were recorded on. It is in that spirit and sentiment that we continue our commitment to preserving the culture, community, and historic creative hub that is London Bridge Studio.

As a way to further connect us all and our love for the "sound" of so many records that have made such an impact on all of us, we would like to offer you the opportunity to make our story YOUR story, restore this legendary console, and etch your own name on this precious piece of Seattle rock history.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, and please, spread the word!

We're so grateful for your continued support and thankful to have you as part of the London Bridge community.

Perk: We will be engraving the names of 250 supporters on a brand new plexiglass panel on the back of the Neve to help fund the cost of it's meticulous restoration.

What's a Neve console you ask?

"You take a microphone and you plug it into the console. You sing into the microphone, the sound goes through the cable, into the desk. And in the desk, you can manipulate the sound by making it brighter, giving it more bass, basically like an EQ on your stereo. Then the sound comes out of the desk and into your tape machine or your Pro Tools unit, and then that's the sound that you get.

Now, different boards do different things to the sound that's coming through them. An old Neve desk does embellish it in a way that makes it sound sort of bigger or warmer. It doesn't change the performance but it does enhance the way that it sounds. You know, it's the difference between listening to an old record on an old stereo versus listening to something off of your iPod. It really suits rock 'n' roll. I think musicians like me are drawn to those older desks, not just because they're legend and lore but also because they do something really specific that is hard to emulate or re-create digitally."

Why should I help with restoring this console?

Seattle has always been a booming hub for music and the arts, and London Bridge has been at the epicenter since the late 80's and early 90's. With your assistance you can help give the next Pearl Jam, Macklemore, or Nirvana an affordable place to flourish and thrive, while preserving an incredible piece of Rock & Roll history for decades to come.
