For almost two decades, Jackpot! Recording Studio has provided services to countless talented, well-known artists (including Elliott Smith, Eddie Vedder, R.E.M. and The Decemberists) while providing the local music community with a convenient and comfortable environment to make records. Drawing on his extensive experience, owner Larry Crane (also the founder and editor of Tape Op Magazine) has created a professional recording studio that is set up for freelance engineers, with supremely organized patchbays, labeling and wiring.
