DRAC STUDIOS

Nestled in the middle of world-famous Hollywood, California, Drac Studios provides a discreet, inspiring and comfortable location while being within minutes of everything Los Angeles has to offer.  With state-of-the-art equipment, instruments and an in-house team of producers, engineers and musicans, Drac Studios can provide you with all your needs for a world-class audio production.

Some photos of my studio Drac Studios named after my beloved late Black Lab . I’m a lover of gear and have been collecting guitars , amps and pedals along with outboard gear for years . Obviously I have a ton of drums , but I just keep a couple of kits at Drac and I have a storage with over 12 kits and 100 snares in the Valley of Los Angeles . This studio has had many great musicians . Billy Gibbons , Warren Haynes , Kenny Wayne Shepard , Lemmy Kilmister , Phil Campbell , Billy Idol , Slash , Steve Stevens , Rick Rubin , Cherie Currie , Josh Homme , The Veronicas , Scott Weiland , Duff McKagan, Stevie Salas , Jordan Sparks , Corey Taylor ,Mark Lanegan , Macy Gray , Donovan Sr and many more . I made my solo record here as well as many Velvet Revolver recordings.
