One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure!

About a year ago my buddy found this old Marantz Quad receiver in the garbage in the hills of Highland Park CA. You bet I dropped everything and drove over to grab it. Best part, it was in 100% workin...

“We just wrapped up a full length album here. If you’re into creating a honest, visceral and real album, you should hit Jeb up here at Big Scary Tree.

“I worked with Jeb and since 2005 I remain loyal, as does he. His downtown location was great. Lots of character, lots of special moments and great tones.

“Big Scary Tree is where we get our best sounds, hands down. The live room sounds great; the mic locker, console, and outboard gear sounds great; and Jeb does a stellar job at dialing in sounds. Also, guitar players–Jeb actually takes care of his instruments and amps! A rare, rare find.”
