MHB’s New Custom Recording Studio Desk

MHB Studio Custom Wood Recording Desk

After years of creating plans to create the perfect custom recording studio desk, I have some real progress! Thanks to good friend and awesome wood builder Brandon Keener from B Custom Cabs, I was able to create a desk to meet my needs and workflow.  One of the main things I wanted to accomplish was the height of the main desk portion and the height of the movable keyboard unit. This was important as almost all pre-made studio desk solutions were too high and my arms would not be at a 90 degree angle. I have had a few pulled tendons in my forearms and without the correct position, hours on the computer can cause problems. Overall, I’m extremely happy with the results. I still have plenty of cabling to finish and soundproofing to put up in the new room, but I’m really stocked about the new custom recording desk and racks.
