Studio & Equipment

Live Room and Recording Room are functionally two most important studio rooms of Bravo Records. Live Room with the area of 100 square meters is allocated for playing music, where optimum acoustic and technical properties are achieved with the assistance of British sound engineers, in order to produce an ideal sound.

Recording Room is equipped with classic and latest models of the famous sound recording equipment brands – Yamaha Grand Piano, Marshall and AMpeg amps, Neumann U87, Brauner Phantom, Earthworks DK25, Coles 4038 Ribbon microphones, and Fender Stratocaster and Fender Precision Bass guitars. Sound signal is directly recorded on the Duality SE console, manufactured by Solid State Logic (SSL), which is installed in the Recording Room and is unique with its parameters. Manufactured upon special commission of Bravo Records, this is the only such console in the South Caucasus.
