One of the World’s Longest Running Recording Studios, Trod Nossel, Celebrates 44 Years In Business

Before circa 1965-66, After 2010

Wallingford, CT (PRWEB) March 8, 2010

Since 1966, Trod Nossel Productions and Recording Studios®, cited by the media as “one of the longest running recording studios of it’s kind in existence,” has been an icon in the music industry since founded by the late, oral surgeon turned music mogul, Thomas ‘Doc’ Cavalier. From 1962-1966, it was Syncron Sound Studios (hence the rare, sought-after Syncron microphones, AU7a and S10) when Doc purchased it before renaming it Trod Nossel 1966.

The studio’s comfortable, vintage vibe houses a collection of memorabilia on its walls; an original letter and release of “No Good To Cry,” by The Wildweeds, from Phil Chess (Chess Records/Cadet label), Andrew Loog Oldham (who describes “life on the Trod Nossel Studios lot” as “an American movie” – Chapter 6 in a Sirius Radio commentary) book cover posters, “Stoned,” and “2Stoned,” early Rolling Stones poster, Motley Crue platinum record for Cub Koda cover “Smokin’ In The Boys Room,” Grammy nominations for Pinetop Perkins, Howlin’ Wolf, and a plethora of recording clients’ CD projects. The two studios have an eclectic blend of analog, boutique, vintage and custom gear, and two independent digital state-of-the-art Pro Tools rigs (HD2/HD3). Everything has a story, from the EMT plate reverb to the Yamaha C7 Grand piano; from the control room (formerly the anechoic chamber built in part by Technical Expert, Danny Zellman), to the vintage Neuman U47s, the main sound room (which doubled as a television studio) and everything in between.

The music publishing and licensing division consists of 10 publishing companies representing over 150 writers. Comprising the 800+ titles from their respective era are some hits throughout the decades such as “No Good To Cry,” by Al Anderson, many by members of The Shags, Bram Rigg Set and Pulse, 96 titles by Cub Koda (best known for “Smokin’ In The Boys Room”), Howard Jeffrey (The Crayons), Nelsen Adelard, Darlene D, Michael DelGuidice, Gene Michael, Cavalier Brothers and a host of others. Selected titles are licensed directly for synchronization to music buyers such as HBO, NBC, Disney, ESPN, etc., and for mechanical licenses directly through the Harry Fox Agency or Carlin America (Cabas). The master catalog consists of well over 5,000 master tapes, including the famed Trod Nossel Concert Series from the 70s featuring unreleased live concerts from Fleetwood Mac, Steppenwolf, Chick Corea and 20 others.

From George Burns and then Yale acting student, Henry Winkler (when the main sound room doubled as a TV studio for The Producers, Inc., another Cavalier production company), to Andrew Loog Oldham, Fleetwood Mac and Grammy nominated blues legends, decades of clients such as Glenn Beck and Vinnie Penn, Inspirational Author Catherine Galasso Vigorito and more recently Sony/Jive Artist R Kelly recording tracks for his latest release, “Untitled,” last month, the client list is impressive and keeps on growing.

In the wake of the 5th anniversary of Doc’s death on January 1, 2010, his company continues to thrive to create, produce, consult, aid, inspire and welcome musicians and artists from all walks of life. Long before the inception of the home studio (“studio in a box”–Doc Cavalier), Trod Nossel Recording Studios had been recording local and major artists, and is the catalyst for launching the careers of many artists through its management division (known as “Rock & Roll Boot Camp” by some musicians previously managed, such as blues artist, Nelsen Adelard, who was managed by Doc in the 70s). Among the gamut of services with impact on the industry, it inspired engineers and current studio owners to set up shop through its audio engineering, computer recording classes (since the early 70s) and work training programs; it was the first to bring the public into the studio as spectators, teach engineering, duplicate tapes and CDs on site, and provide technical and career consultation. The thrust and passion of the organization has always been about the music; managing acts, producing records, and publishing and licensing songs. In the early 90s the Miracle Concerts division booked national and regional shows for then up-and-coming acts like Ellen DeGeneres, Queen Latifah, Gilbert Godfried, The Beach Boys and the Spin Doctors, to name a few.

The main 7,000 sq. ft. studio is one of 3 buildings on 3 acres of land, one being band rehearsal rooms. It is a 3 acre “music compound;” private, fenced, and at the end of a dead end street — a place to make music. Back in the day people like Donovan, whose only request was a basketball hoop installed in the back lot of The Barn (a 10,000 sq. foot building located behind the studio), played basketball between takes. You will always hear music just about any time you pull onto the property; whether it’s coming from the rehearsal spaces, the A&R office, or the recording studio, which delivers sessions 24/7. Due to the size of the lot and access to the studio, some filmmakers have expressed an interest in setting up shop there.

Besides a myriad of Doc’isms like the “moth around the light bulb theory,” if Doc passed on nothing else but perseverance to his offspring, Cavalier siblings Darlene, Tommy and Robbie did not let the adversity surrounding Doc’s death slow them down. Now run by the trio and their dedicated staff, in 2008 a collection of 60s psychedelic garage rock songs from the vault was released on Sundazed Records called, “Don’t Press Your Luck.” The company has regrouped, reorganized and gained momentum, formed new business ventures and partnerships, accredited experiential learning programs and signed several publishing deals in 2009. For 2010, several undisclosed ventures are in progress. Darlene Cavalier, CEO/Executive Director: background in contract negotiation, business development and executive consultation (Fairfield University, CT, Quinnipiac University, CT, Dean College, MA – Business Administration/Management Information Systems, Grammy Committee New York Chapter – Voting Member, MRT I/RIAA Certified, IP Certified); Robbie Cavalier, President/CFO: Grammy Nominated Mixing/Mastering Engineer, Network and Technical Expert (MRT I & II/RIAA Certified); Tommy Cavalier, President/Director, Miracle Concerts Booking Agency Division (University of New Haven, CT – Music Business Administration, NACA, IACEP)

I know my mom and dad recollect when they got their original television back when they were young. I grew up with television, so I don’t truly know what it’s like to not have one, but I can say I know what it’s like to get a brand new HD TV. Just why did I bother with getting a new TV? Didn’t my old one work just fine? Well, I thought it did, until I bought my new widescreen HD TV.

The picture is so much brighter and clearer; you would be surprised if you haven’t ever seen one. The difference between my old set and my HD set is almost like day and night. It’s just that superior. But, I only bought one set. Why?

Well, the important reason is that at the present, I could only afford one. They’re still on the rather pricy side (even though prices are steadily dropping), so there’s truly no sense in buying one for the entire house if I only watch TV in one room of it, right? Believe me, though, if I had the money, I’d buy one for every area in my sanctuary that has a television.

Aside from televisions, additional products have come onto the marketplace that supports the new HD technology, like camcorders. These can be pretty pricy, but if you’re the family holiday record keeper like I am, getting one of these is a outstanding investment. Think about all the old movies that you made with a VHS recorder so long ago. They were grainy and you wish you’d been able to record at a better quality. Getting an HD camcorder will make sure you get the best caliber obtainable to the common person.

To play the HD DVDs you make recordings on, though, you’ll have to have an high definition DVD player. The DVD player you have now will not likely play high definition DVDs (although you may have already bought one, so check your DVD player’s manual). Some game consoles support playing HD DVDs, but Playstation 3 does not. The Playstation 3 will play the HD format’s rival format, Blu-Ray, but is not compatible with HD.

Speaking of game consoles, video games are now coming out in high definition, as well. If you’re a player, you might want to invest in one of the consoles that has high definition games.

Try not to go overboard with the HD equipment, tho’. Make careful you’re going to get the most out of your money and you’re truly going to use all these new things you’re purchasing or else it’s just lost money. Good luck finding the equipment that’s opportune for you!
