The summary above is from Ron Newdoll's catalog at Accurate Sound Company in the early '70s. Ron owned Accurate Sound Studios in San Angelo, Texas and was the studio used by Alpine's rock band the "Believers" in 1965. The studio had a professional echo chamber built into the basement. Ron moved his business near Ampex and began refurbishing Ampex equipment for the professional audio market. You can see more about Ron at Accurate Sound Company. Here's a couple of other interesting links that talk about recording at the studio.
