The Velveteen Laboratory is located in Los Feliz, off of Hillhurst Ave, walking distant to restaurants, bars, and shops.
The studio has racks of classic vintage guitars, most notably 1960’s Gibsons, Fenders, Martins, and Silvertones, amps galore ranging from Vox, Marshall, Top Hat, Supros, and half a dozen Fenders. Heaps of highly collectible effects include original Foxx Tone Machines, Maestro Fuzztones, rare early Electro-Harmonix pedals, a Roland Space Echo, 2 Maestro Echoplexes, and dozens of contemporary pedals. Session ace, Roger Joseph Manning Jr (Beck, Air, Jellyfish, Moog Cookbook) moved his entire museum quality synthesizer and piano collection into the Velveteen Laboratory on permanent loan. The collection has pieces ranging from rare 60s combo organs, to early Moogs and Arps, to classic electric pianos.
