We feature a large selection of the finest microphones, preamps, speakers and vintage recording devices. One of our many features is the Steinway 7’ Grand Piano. Originally built in 1885, and later rebuilt by Sheldon Smith, it is one of the finest instruments you’ll find in any Bay Area recording studio.

OTR has large isolated rooms, 4 headphone mixes, a Hammond B-3 Organ, and professional experienced engineers. Our staff has experience with archiving tapes to digital media as well as programming capabilities..
