Flooded Studio Gear Repairs

$1,735 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 17 people in 53 months
My chief concerns after the CO floods of 2013 are to complete all repairs of studio equipment, and to have a working recording facility by February 28. This has been as elusive goal up to now as we only have two major pieces to go, our Flying Fader system and our EMT reverb plate. Both of these suffered water and mud damage, but can be set back up with our technicians in CA. So we have shipping costs of around $150, labor costs around $3,500 and another $3,850 in overhead (keeping the electricity on!). Our projects are long overdue. Fans of Willis Alan Ramsey have been waiting the longest! So, I see this as my job as co-producer to ask for your help to get this great man's wonderful music out into the world!

Hello, Old Friends, New Friends and Fans! We have just returned from two weeks of touring with the whole family onboard; fussin', fighting', singing, playing and enjoying each others company. It had been such a long time since I had been to New York, I actually Did get lost in Chinatown! But we found our way to several fantastic venues whose staff, room and audiences made up for any second thoughts I might have had along the way. So, how did we do financially? Not too shabby - we will be able to afford our overhead through May. But what about the repairs? Right, well, we are awaiting the return of our Flying Faders computer which, since it took longer, of course, will be closer to $1,000 with shipping and insurance. What if you could help me fight for the return and restoration of our music production facility? So many people are waiting for our CD's - heck, we probably met hundreds of them up east. We will be fine once we are up and running and producing again. With your help, it could be very soon! Please donate to my fight today. Thank you!!!
Who built these crates and put our LP's in our neighbors deep freeze to separate them? WE DID!! Thank goodness for neighbors….

Hello Supporters!! We will be locking up the studio and heading out to tour from Atlanta to Annapolis to D.C., New York, Philly and Boston! No one will be manning the ship, so I am asking for your assistance so that we can return to the studio with some of this work ready to re-install!!! It's very hard to explain our business, but we own it, so we are trying to get ahead of the game as quickly as possible! Would you let your friends, family and acoustic music lovers know we are looking for their support? Thank you!

Hello friends, contributors and those on the fence thinking good thoughts!
We have returned from a whirlwind weekend of dates to find out that our Flying Faders computer mixing system has been very difficult to get fixed and going. Our top flight tech out in Thousand Oaks, CA. Is carefully stepping through the repair, but you know how it is.... Important machines take what they take to make right! So, unfortunately , as you know, this will be a more costly repair than we thought! If and when we can come up with the remaining $5,875, we will make it to May 31 with the last two big ticket items, the EMT reverb plate and our Flying Faders computer system, back to us, re-installed and ready for music activities!! Thank you for your interest and support as we go through the process.
