I'm a full-time musician (MA guitar & composition), working at my home recording studio, equipped with the highest quality boutique gear and over 30 years of experience in various genres of music. I can track your song working with both electric and acoustic sets, recording original or cover songs. I also can do reamping of your dry-DI tracks.
I love arranging, recording & reamping guitar tracks. I play styles from classic rock, blues, indie, ambient, electronica, to heavy metal, progressive...
I’m equally happy taking specific instructions (including sheet music) or no instructions at all. Typically, we will discuss song direction and guitar concepts in order to achieve the best results for your project.
I have a wide range of guitars, amps, racks, and pedal effects as well as plug-ins and IR’s, although, I prefer recording with valve amps and real cabinets & microphones.
Having boutique analog gear I can do HQ re-amping. Just send me your DI (clean) recorded guitar track(s)
I use AMS Neve 1073LB and Chandler Limited TG2 500 mic preamps.
I will send you the high quality mastered WAV files 24bit/48khz (or as required) as separated tracks for you or your mixing engineer to have complete control over.

Interview with Peter Glavanov
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I record my guitars through real tube amps and guitar cabinets. I own a bunch of them-all boutiques and a few of those are vintage. Amps include:(1975) Marshall JMP50 mk2, (1962) Fender Tremolux, Friedman BE100 deluxe, Brunetti Mercury 100, Mesa Boogie mkV, and more. Cabs include Marshall 1960B, Bogner 212 OS, Brunetti 4x12 B, and more. Guitars include; Fender CS deluxe Strat, PRS 24 custom, Suhr Custom Standard, Gibson LP Deluxe, and more. I mic up the cab with Shure SM57 and/or Sennheiser E-609 plus a Superlux R102 mkll (ribbon mic) and record guitars via AMS Neve 1073 & Chandler Limited TG2 500 mic preamps plugged into M audio ProFire 2626 interface. For each el guitar track, I use 2 close mics placed in front of 2 different speakers, recorded on two separate channels for richer sound plus another (third) DI recorded track if needed. I have Cubase SX and provide high quality dry or wet .WAV files 24/48K. My studio monitors are Genelec 1029A. For the recording of acoustic guitars (I own Taylor 710 CE and Alvarez Yairy JY84-12), I use Rode NTK tube condenser mic. I do reamping via Radial X-AMP STUDIO REAMPER

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
