In the last year, I’ve made a couple of upgrades to my studio space. And the one I think was most valuable might surprise you.
My most satisfying studio upgrade for the whole year was my…chair. And it was so awesome, I just added this slide to my January VO2GoGo.com class on Mastering Home VO Gear to recommend it.
(Click on the picture to see the slide full-size.)
I actually owned the chair to the left (it’s a Steelcase Gesture, and it retails at $1495), but eventually, parts of it squeaked, and couldn’t be silenced for long.
That meant more retakes and pickups.
So, I looked around for a chair that simply can’t squeak. That means a quieter studio space, and, surprisingly, just as comfy (add a $7 plush seat cushion for extra comfy-ness).
The chair I got (and love) is a one-piece aluminum chair from Alston Quality, available on Amazon, for about $80. It varies in price up to $150.
Hope this helps.
