TudorTones

TudorTones Studio is the studio that Jeff and his wife, violinist Songa Lee operate out of their home in Valley Village, CA.  

many of Jeff's keyboards live there full time, including a Hammond B3 w/Leslie, 1972 Fender Rhodes 88 Suitcase, Wurlitzer electric piano, Korg Kronos and various vintage synthesizers.  whatever Jeff doesn't keep at TudorTones is only 5 minutes away at his storage facility at Custom Vintage and easily transported to TudorTones.  (including Hohner D6 clavinet, pianet, many many more old and less old synthesizers, pump organ, field organ, Vox, Farfisa, Yamaha and other weirdo organs...)

his soft synth collection and revolving keyboards also live at TudorTones, as does the vibraphone, accordion, melodicas, trombones, trumpet...

the Steinway piano is also always ready to mike and record in the main room.

live strings and brass have been recorded at TudorTones, too, with fine results.
