Layman Drug Company Rare Finds hero. Brighter

In our second episode of Rare Finds, we visit a former drugstore turned music recording studio in Nashville called Layman Drug Company. The studio has hosted recording sessions, performance showcases and is specifically designed to accommodate filming.

Watch as proprietor Will Grieg and head engineer Alex Chaloff play some of their favourite gear from the studio, from a retro baritone guitar to a classic drum machine, and a unique remake of a Bill Putnam-designed tube mixing console.
