Electrical Audio is a two-studio complex located in Chicago, Illinois and owned by Steve Albini.

You can take a closer look at the studios.

We are always in the process of putting our equipment up for you to look at and read about. We even sell our own in house designed mic preamp and Mid Side Matrix.

If you want to read about the people that work here or people who worked here in the past, you can do that over in the Staff & Friends section.

If you are interested in recording here and want to know how much it might cost you or your band, you can find that out over in the Booking & Rates section.

Take a look at our forums for discussions about recording, microphones, drum tuning and all sorts of other things.

And finally, if you need to contact us or you need directions to the studio, you can find that information here.

The Fender Dual Showman (modded

equipment picture

Tubes: 4 x Sovtek 5881WXT 4 x GE12AX7/7025

Ours has been modded by Bryan Gleason. The mod was meant to make this into an ultra-high gain amp with an early-Mesa sound. The mod feeds the output of the "Normal" channel preamp into the input of the Vibrato channel preamp. Insane amounts of gain are available.

The second channel has not been modified, so you can still use this amp to get the stock Dual Showman sound.

The tone stack on the "Normal" channel is disabled, so to adjust tone on either channel, use the tone controls on the "Vibrato" channel.
