About Low Watt

 

 

LOW WATT RECORDING IS:

TED COMERFORD - PRODUCER/ENGINEER

BRENDAN KELLY - PRODUCER/ENGINEER

SEAN KELLY - PRODUCER/ENGINEER 

 

Low Watt Recording was founded in 2003 in Washington, D.C. by producer Ted Comerford, and is now located in the historic district of Savannah, GA, incorporating the creative talents of Brendan Kelly and Sean Kelly of A Fragile Tomorrow. Low Watt is a recording studio without the uninspiring, corporate, vanilla vibe. Yes- here you'll be surrounded by bright colors, hip furniture, and the occasional robot. You'll also have a large collection of vintage and modern gear at your fingertips. But more than all that, you'll be dealing with people who want to create the coolest, most awe-inspired jams possible.

 

The studio is centered around our fab-sounding Vintage Neve Console. We have a Pro Tools HD3 running Pro Tools 10 for endless ways of capturing and enhancing your recording.  We also have Logic Pro 9, as well as Reason for additional instruments and programming.  

 

There are 3 tracking rooms of various sizes-- plenty of room for most bands to spread out comfortably.  We also have 8 custom gobos to alter the rooms acoustics to your liking.  While the room is more catered to big drum sounds, it's completely possible to get dead/little drum tones quickly and easily.  

 

The studio also boasts a large lounge with an amazing vibe and a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. 

 

Our favorite perk of the studio is it's location.  Nestled in downtown Savannah, Georgia, the studio is walking distance to over 100 bars and restaurants, historic River Street, shopping, and a variety of cultural and historic landmarks.
