Artisan Sound Recorders

Artisan Sound Recorders

Profile:
Artisan Sound Recorders is a recording and mastering facility in Southern California. Founded in the 1960s by Bob MacLeod, it has been located in Pasadena, Hollywood, Chatsworth and Los Angeles, California. Do not confuse with Florida mobile recording unit Artisan Recorders Inc.
Also credited as:
· Artisan Sound
· Artisan Sound Recording Studio

When MacLeod retired in 1979, the studio was acquired by Kent Duncan and became part of Kendun Recorders.
In 1993 it was acquired Jon Lowry and Beverley Lowry.

In 2001 Artisan Sound Recorders was moved to Chatsworth, California.
In December 2013 Artisan Sound Recorders reopened its new location in North Hollywood.

The sign representing the logo is often stamped into the runout (see images). The logo is made up of two rings representing a disc, completed by an old fashioned circumference gauge representing the A for Artisan. Ideally, [Artisan logo] can be used to describe the stamp in the runouts, and the studio is listed in the label/company section to make the connection. Some refer to the symbol as "Circles and sticks."
