A Fan Favorite
Many fans may know that the Electric Lady Studio studio was originally made for Jimi Hendrix. With large, round windows, it was designed have a relaxing feel to encourage creativity, but still have the necessities of a professional recording studio. Rumour has it that any drug use was prohibited during session work, and this was a steadfast rule. The studio was also painted in a psychedelic space theme.
What’s In the Box?
The shipments included one-of-a-kind vintage recording consoles that were restored to original specifications. Todd Partridge, Vice President of Operations for MoveIt® companies, said the difficult layout of the floor plan required “The larger console had to be tipped on end to navigate tight corners and a narrow stairway and the other piece of equipment was rigged through a 2nd story window. Not your typical freight and not your typical delivery!” He added that the MoveIt® Companies were especially proud to have played a part in the history of this cultural icon.
