Kendun Recorders

Profile:
Former studio facility with recording and four disc mastering studios located in Burbank, California, USA. Founded in 1971 by and named after engineer Kent Duncan. Sold to Encore Entertainment Group in 1985 and renamed to Encore Studios. The "A" room became Red Zone Studios. Sold again in 2001 and renamed Glenwood Place Studios.
Kendun Studio D was a separate location at 4620 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank.

Operations started with an 8-track room ("Studio 2" which converted to 24-track in 1972, the first 24-track studio in Los Angeles). First cutting room was added in 1972 ("Studio 3"), a second cutting room was opened in 1973 ("Studio 4") and a third cutting room was opened in 1975 ("Studio 5"). The large live room studio ("Studio 1") was opened in 1976. Studio 4 was converted to a half-speed cutting room in July 1978.

Apparently Jeff Sanders also did work at Kendun. After noticing Jeff's runout etching "JS·XTAL" perfectly matches "JS·KENDUN" I got to wondering and found it in the credits of Tom Waits' Swordfishtrombones ("Mastered by Jeff Sanders at Kendun Recorders"). Also the back cover of Hell Comes to Your House: "Mastered by Jeff Sanders at Kendun Recorders".
