We specialize in artist development, recording, and promotion. Centrally located in Loxley, Alabama amidst 2400 acres of private property, we have created the perfect environment to bring out the best in our artists.  Check out our list of gear, latest projects as well as the photo gallery to get a feel for what it is we do.

Anthony has spent his entire life in the entertainment industry acquiring knowledge about sound recording & instruments and has worked side by side with such legendary artists as Neil Young, Steve Winwood, and Dwight Yoakam.  Through his opportunities with top level engineers, masterers, and producers, he has acquired the skills necessary to produce the Admiral Bean sound he is now known for.  

If you are looking for an alternative to the sterile environment studio, you have found the right place.  Admiral Bean Studio is another level of recording.  Come see for yourself!

The Recording Process

We focus on performance based artistry, providing an environment for the artist to reach down deep and get that performance of a lifetime.  Specializing in digital recording with over 40 years of experience in the industry, our recording preference is ProTools 10. The signal path used is that of any great studio in the world starting with Neve, API, and Universal Audio.  With a microphone selection ranging from Neumann tube mics to Sure SM7B, you are destined to get the sound you are searching for.  We use a Universal Audio 610 pre-amp and a Universal Audio 1176 Compressor for a stellar sound.  Plug-ins when necessary are of high quality as well ranging from SSL, API, and Fairchild.  Vintage Slingerland drums available to build the perfect rhythm track.
