Gear

Our in-house backline includes Pearl drums, Fender amps & guitars, Ovation acoustic & electrics and the greatest pianos in the world, the Fazioli F308 & F212.

In the studio we feature the 10 foot 2 inch Fazioli F308 concert grand. It’s the largest piano in production in the world today. Perfect for classical, jazz or any other kind of music recording. The F308 shines in performance mode. It alone can fill the largest of concert halls. Infrared is the only studio in the world to own one of these magnificent instruments.

Residing in our west Little Rock venue, Capitol Keyboards’ “Capitol Room”, the “little brother” to the F308, the 6 foot 11 inch Fazioli F212. If the F308 is the aircraft carrier of pianos, the F212 is the Italian sports car. Nimble and controllable, it’s perfect for modern recordings of pop, r&b, rock or country.

In recording it’s all about the mic, mic pre & signal path. Infrared Studio Productions is proud of our mic closet and gear list. Including high end mic pres by API, LaChapell, Avedis, Shadow Hills , Grace and Rupert Neve Designs, and mics by Neumann, SounDeluxe, Royer, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Shure and Earthworks. All mic cables are Monster and the snakes are ProCo.

Don’t see something specific you’ll need to do your project? Just ask, Infrared has lots of contacts across the country, just about everything is rentable when it comes to mics & mic pre’s.
