Why Vintage Gear?
We choose select vintage gear here at the Dub Room Studio because vintage recording equipment is usually hand crafted piece by piece, with components that are either no longer in production or hard to find.Our collection of vintage components add to the warmth and character that digital and most modern manufacturers who cut corners for profit simply cannot replicate.
This is a 1977 microphone in a class of its own. Vintage Microphones of this caliber have been heard on countless musical treasures, including the best selling album of all time: Thriller.
Neve Preamp 1081 (2)
The 1081 preamp circuitry is hand wired with a huge warm sound and tons of overhead that is only comparable to moms home made biscuits.
Neve 1073 Preamp & Eq
One of the most popular, sought after vintage microphone amplifier and EQ modules ever made. It's big, upfront warmth in sound lends a very high degree of musicality to any source.
Urei 1176 (2)
These vintage 1176's were previously owned and inspected by world renowned Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios. Smooth and thick, when paired with the u87 & Neve, it's the gravy on the biscuit.

Meet Ryan Pate | Owner, Engineer, Musician
Growing up in Virginia beach Dub Room studio owner Ryan Pate once a sub contractor for the us government, with a secret clearance working on submarines and surface ships, always had a passion for music.
His musical journey began playing guitar and drums opening for such acts as Run DMC, Eek a Mouse, & George Clinton Parliament. Soon after his passion for recording, combined with his government technical engineering experience, led him on the path to Los Angeles where he then slept on couches to support the idea that he only wanted to purchase the best quality recording equipment available, so no corners were cut.
Today that grassroots passion remains the driving force behind the operation and the vibe of the Dub Room studio.
