Tedesco Studios

My band ArtCrime recorded a new album for the Unseen Rain label this week and the sessions were at Tedesco Studios in Paramus. Tom Tedesco has been running this homey place for 20 years. I recommend it for several reasons.

He has a really nice selection of choice instruments. A very good Steinway, a Hammond B3 and a funky old Wurly E.P., among others. His gear is very good: a classic 1940s Neumann condenser, a beautiful Neve console, individual headphone mixes for each performer. The location is ideal for anyone coming from Manhattan or New Jersey.

But the best, I saved for last. He has a 20th anniversary special on: $250 for an entire day. You can record for a week and it will cost the same as 1 day at a studio in the city. Tom is knowledgeable, laid-back and a pleasure to deal with.
