Gleeson eventually sold Different Fur in 1985. However, it remains an active recording studio to this day. The studio is currently owned by Patrick Brown who has produced and engineered bands such as the Morning Benders, Toro y Moi, and A B & The Sea. Read more
They use our coffee (Rhetoric Coffee) in the studio so I have to recommend them. Oh and they do spotlights on their artists!!
Patrick Brown at Different Fur has always given me good deals on recording; night spots etc. He even gave me instructions on home recording so I could save money by recording at home and re-amping the pre recorded tracks through his Twin Reverb later. This way, I didn't waste money trying to get the take right and I could use the studio time for more productive things. He's easy and fun to work with.
Great studio, competitive rates, & the staff treats you like family. An amazing group of people & a really impressive space. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to record in the San Francisco Bay Area.Original recommendation

Our 6 piece band just recorded live in studio A and managed to get clean, full-sounding takes of a 4 track EP done in a couple days. Shawn is one of the most proficient engineers I've worked with in recent time, he knows his shit and yet retains a sensible approach to the craft that allowed us to get the most out of the equipment and facilities in our brief time there.Original recommendation

One of my favorite places in the world to record music. Great live room, amazing gear, rad people, super fresh production room, incredible location. Such a classic staple studio for San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. So many amazing records have been made here, really look forward to making many more in the future!Original recommendation
Best place to record in San Francisco hands down! Amazing history, gear, room, and Staff! The tracking room sounds great and if you add that with an SSL and the best Engineers in town you get the best tones anywhere in SF. Great vibe and Sauna is a huge plus! Thanks to everyone @ DF for making my songs sounds just the way I wanted them!Original recommendation
Hands down the best studio I have ever been too. Equipment was superb, staff were super friendly and made you feel so welcome. I would 100% recommend Different Fur to anybody wanting to record a song or a voice over. I'm tempted just to go back and hand out with them. Would give 7 stars if possible.Original recommendation
