At Gold Diggers The Speakers Make The Room

In the summer of 2022, we spent some time in Los Angeles visiting many of the artists and professional studios that use our products and technology to shine a light on their work and experience with HEDD Audio.

The first video from these visits showcased how German producer Robot Koch uses HEDD as a portable monitoring solution. In this latest video we turn to Gold Diggers, a recording studio quite unlike any others in a city famed for them. 

Launched in 2018 from the ashes of a historical dive bar and soundstage used by Ed Wood in the 1950s, Gold Diggers is a self-styled music campus featuring a hotel, bar, music venue, and recording studio located in East Hollywood. Blink as you drive past on Santa Monica Blvd. and you might miss it but behind the unassuming facade lies a jewel for anyone who likes good food, good times, and good sound.

One of the hardest challenges for any professional studio is ensuring consistency in the sonic experience across rooms, and in turn across spaces where the music will be heard - from live stage to clubs to cars. But as Gold Diggers studio manager Simon Horrocks and studio partner Dave Trumfio told us, they’ve been able to make this a smooth and pleasant experience thanks to HEDD’s TYPE 20 monitors and the Tower Mains System. 

Watch the video to hear Simon and Dave explain how the campus came together, how the studio offers a uniquely intimate recording experience to artists, and why HEDD speakers have been an integral part of it since the beginning helping to bring new life to recording and listening sessions for Spotify, Apple Music, Travis Scott, Billie Eilish.
