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 F 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.
