At one point, they had the world's biggest SSL. I think it was 101 channels... so that they'd have one more channel than the former largest.


The big room at Enterprise also had the largest speakers I've ever seen, with these ridiculous subs the size of small jacuzzis. Lots of hip-hop mixed there.


Wonder how much they want for the A820? (drool)

Just go out and try to buy a new M49 or 251... ;) they have not been made for years, and the vintage items still command hefty prices, although you can get excellent new clones and "in the style of" products for less. I imagine they'll have no problems getting good prices for many of the items on their auction list - especially with Wes handling the auction. :)

Yup. Sign o' the times.

I used to do a few projects over there in the early 90's. Always had a great time. Had a two hour conversation with Burton Cummings of the Guess Who at the Enterprise. I had heard a rumor that Slash had bought the place ??? I guess not... came around the same time I heard The Red Hot Chillie's bought Cherokee. I sure hate seeing these big beautiful places go.

It's always sad to see a place like that go down. But what a find for those in search of equipment with money to burn.

As I recall, yes.


And they had a great collection of vintage film posters (lots of Vadim/Bardot) decorating the halls.

Russ, I hadn't heard anything about Cherokee being on the block or in danger of going under. I'm not always up to date or in the loop on such things, but I would have thought I would have heard about that if they were.




Do you have any links or insight you can give me on the matter? I'd hate to see Cherokee in trouble too. :(

Sad, sign of the times I guess. I still wonder what became of Axis (Formerly LeFevre) Studios in Atlanta - that was where I first got my feet wet as an intern. Damn nice place...


Still - I wish I had a wad o' cash to come out & hit the auction! (Shameless... ;) )

You mean besides the big "for sale" sign on the front ? I think it's been for sale for over a year. Only two rooms are functioning right now, the big room and the one in the back. The other rooms are dismantled and what used to be the big lounge/kitchen is a barber shop. We went and looked at it as a possible personal workspace but it needs a lot of work and wouldn't be practical anymore for a multiple client situation (for instance if you're working in the studio B you have to walk through the studio A live room to use the bathroom). I was told they're restructuring and thinking of building a facility downtown.
