2014.08.04 // Fender Special Run

Picked up a pair of Fender FSR Telecasters this last week. One is a 2012 Telecaster Standard in Swirl Blue. Pretty crazy paint job, looks like a bowling ball mated with a Nashville Tele. The other is a 2011 Telecaster Deluxe '72 RI in Gold Flake. Much like the Aqua Flake we've already got, but this one just screamed our name until I was "forced" to buy it. They're both set up with killer action and intonated to perfection. Use them on your next recording at Clarity!

2014.07.19 // Mixing the Days Away

A couple long mixing sessions and The ShyFox's new EP "Beneath the Beach Tree" is headed out for duplication! Little known fact: Clarity also offers in-house graphic design for album art and merchandise! We've had a hand in a few pieces for The ShyFox, City Reef, Everybody Knows, and dozens of other local bands. Looking for anything at all? We can help. :)

2014.07.07 // San Jose: Game Time!

I'll be out of town again this weekend for the annual California Extreme Retro Gaming Expo. Can't really argue with a weekend-long expo with a convention center FULL of retro arcade machines set to free play! I'll be away from the studio July 10-14th. Road trips are king. Let's make some music when I get back? :)

2014.06.26 // That Fender Chime

The amp collection continues to grow at Clarity. Picked up an American made '93 Fender Blues DeVille today! She's a little dusty, and needs a couple spots scrubbed out, but the tubes are pristine and she gets loud as hell. Need some Fender chime on your next album? She's the one.

2014.06.01 // June Schedule

This month, we've got a couple new hip hop artists coming in to track singles, and City Reef comes back to track another song for their debut EP. The Summer calendar is wide open for tracking, so hit us up soon and get something scheduled!

2014.05.22 // Crafted in Japan

The Telecaster collection continues to grow. Just added a killer 1995 Fender Telecaster Thinline, Crafted in Japan. Super clean TV Jones Classic pickups, upgraded bridge. This things sings and does it with a ton of clarity, which, as you all know, we love. Use it on your next recording here at Clarity! :)

2014.05.06 // Beneath the Beach Tree

This week, The ShyFox is headed in to start on a brand new EP. Seven songs of alternative and pop folky goodness. Look for that sometime in June. I'll also be track another song with City Reef towards the end of the month, and have some sweet new gear on the way soon!

2014.04.24 // In and Out

Earlier this week, Cory Crummel stopped by and knocked out a quick three-song acoustic EP! Samples updated this weekend with some new stuff from a handful of projects we've finished recently, and if you're not too busy this Friday night, swing by Epicentre in San Diego and catch Cory's set. He'll be playing everything he tracked and more!

Reviews of Our Work
"Nothing short of amazing! Sean at Clarity Recordings worked tirelessly to provide me with tracks that not only exceeded my expectations, but helped me to find and fully realize the sound I was going for. I live 100 miles away from the studio and would drive double that knowing what Clarity Recordings produces!"

"When we needed a new mix and master of our song for an upcoming lyric video, we chose Sean at Clarity Recordings - and we're so glad we did!! He has such a great ear for the minute details, he listened to our feedback, and translated it into a final version we were proud to share (and with a faster-than-expected turnaround). We would recommend him to anyone who wants a professional boost to their quality of sound! Thanks, Sean!!"
