"Since working with the team at Red Lion I have expanded my knowledge so much. Getting hands on time with some real analog gear, and working with real bands has been amazing. Gus and Caine have taken time to teach me the little things from cable routing and signal flow to how to EQ and processing live drums! A real studio experience has helped me grow tremendously. I highly recommend you check them out if you are serious about learning. "
