the gear

Topping the list of impressive gear at Imagine Sound Studios is Mark’s nine foot Bosendorfer piano.  With unparalleled sound and perfectly balanced action, you have the option of playing the Bosendorfer yourself or having Mark do so.  Complementing the Bosendorfer are an assortment of high end tube and solid state microphones and pre amps, an 88 key suitcase Rhodes, a vintage Whirly and countless other tools at your disposal. 

Along with all of this gear, and as a result of Mark’s established relationships in the professional music industry, comes access to Toronto’s finest musicians to play either alongside, or for you, on whatever instrument you might require.
