Behind the Design

Yellow Hammer Studio is a 700 sq. ft. recording and mixing facility located in the heart of East Nashville. The studio doubles as a production facility for the drum sampling company Nashville Sampling Co. The Hammer has worked with Winter Records to push out chart topping singles, as well as collaborated with great artists such as Rich Redmond and Garrett Goodwin to create virtual instruments of unparalleled control and quality.

The studio is equipped with an impressive list of music production equipment, including top tier preamps from companies like API, Avedis, and Aurora, as well as microphones from AKG, Royer, Miktek, and more. The mixing equipment includes a Bricasti-M7 reverb, API 2500 compressor, hordes of plugins, and a computer with a 33.5k GeekBench score to power the lot of them.

The design is a collaboration between owner JR Miller and designer Carl Tatz based on vintage tones and cigar-parlor vibes. Don't let the coziness fool you though, this space has nearly 100 dB in sound reduction between the tracking room and mixing room. And yes, We've tracked TONS of live bands with our setup, finding that the isolation from our three rooms is more than enough to tackle all recording requests. Hell, we've even tracked 24 singers at once. If you would like to know more about our spot, hit us up at this link.
