Old School Studio Design

Mr. Smalls Recording and Mastering Studio offers an enormous live room with up to three additional isolation rooms, all with double paned glass sight-lines. All of our rooms are acoustically designed and treated to ensure the best possible sound. We present a warm and relaxed setting, with great gear and years of experience.

Personal Touch

We at Mr. Smalls Studios are passionate about every aspect of the recording and music production business. We specialize in walking our clients through the entire process of creating an album. We stand out from most Pittsburgh based recording studios because we want to be involved before you record your first note in the studio. Let us use our years of experience to help you get the best product possible. We commit to a higher quality of service, building long term relationships with all those we work with, which we see in our high level of return clientele.


We use Pro Tools HDX as our main recording format, along with a great deal of analog and tube equipment. This combination gives you the best of both technologies, the warmth of analog, with the clarity and editing power of digital. We also offer individual headphone stations for each musician, enabling you to control the blend of instruments so you hear everything exactly how you want.
