From the Street:

"'Explosive Sound ... Intimate Setting' is the slogan I use to best describe my studio, and owning API gear certainly helps validate a statement of such. When clients or guests come over and see the 1608 or see the 2500 they are impressed by the quality and reputation and know they will get a massive sound."

"The best elements of my API gear are their quality, ease of use, reliability and clarity. I can't imagine life without my 1608."

"Aside from having an awesome product, the thing I mostly enjoy about API is the amazing staff and the amazing service, A+++. It is so easy to get in contact with a friendly voice who is always more than happy and willing to help resolve any issue."

About Grant Goddard and Bikini Atoll:

Bikini Atoll is a 2,000 square foot, professionally designed recording facility. It is made up of a control room, two large tracking rooms, a vocal book, and an amp isolation closet. The personal touches Goddard added to the studio include a lounge, fully-stocked kitchen, "plastic parrots and a cozy backyard."

The studio was founded in 2010 by Goddard "as a vehicle to showcase my creative ideas, love for music, and desire to help others achieve their artistic dreams." Goddard has experience working with big names from across musical genres, including Slash, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Neon Trees, Smashing Pumpkins and Mos Def.
