Creative Workshop

Established 1970

Sphere Eclipse  Recording Console

This rare recording console was designed by Don McLaughlin and comes from the legendary lineage of Electrodyne and Quad Eight consoles.  Custom made for Creative Workshop in 1975, this vintage console remains as punchy and fat as it was on the day it arrived.  The 24 onboard M1200 preamps provide the classic tones that we feel stands up to the Neve, API, Helios, and other famous boards of that era.  Each channel is equipped with Sphere’s notorious 900 series equalizers, which are known for their musicality and intuitive, graphic design.

The Johnny Cash Show Yamaha G7

Buzz Cason bought this piano in 1971 from Gary Walker after the Johnny Cash TV Show disbanded.  The Johnny Cash Show aired 58 episodes and was filmed at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  Ray Charles gave a most memorable rendition of “Ring of Fire” playing this piano on the stage of the Ryman.  When it wasn’t being featured in the show, this piano lived in the orchestra pit with the music director for the show,  Bill Walker.
