It All Started With Damon Studios
Mr. Victor Damon was the founder of Damon Studios in 1933. Mr. Damon was instrumental in the development of spring reverb units, his prototype was used on many early Decca recordings. He also helped modify and upgrade the Scully Westrex disc cutting head amplifiers for Hacco, a leading disc mastering equipment manufacture. Damon Studios also housed the Damon Recording label which won “Record Of The Year” from Billboard magazine in 1948 for “My Happiness” by Jon and Sondra Steel. The Song was written by Kansas City artist Betty Blasco. Chuck Chapman started with Damon Studio in 1972 and later purchased the business.

30 Years of Recording, Mixing and Mastering 

From the early 1970’s Chapman Recording and Mastering has been active with all types of production and several technological evolutions within the professional audio industry.

When we opened our doors the cassette and twenty-four track were new formats and most studios were still “one big room”.

Since then we’ve experienced remarkable growth away from the limitations of magnetic tape and linear recording to the unlimited possibilities of digital audio.

We’ve participated in the creative process on thousands of sessions while working with some of the greatest talent ever.
