V/O Equipment & Supplies

~ Some of the equipment and supplies I use in my Home Studio & while traveling ~

Do your research and purchase whatever you like.  Lots of options.
This page shows what I use.

This portable recording booth is a must for recording on the road and in your home studio.
A client asked me to record some pickups from a previously recorded V/O.
I was on a business trip and my hotel room was noisy.  What a nightmare!
I purchased this booth as soon as I returned home.
It comes with a case and is easy to take on trips and also use at home.
