Graybox Nashville is a professional recording studio located in Nashville, TN, owned and operated by engineer and producer Cody Hunter. Designed and constructed by Joshua Niles with Niles Acoustics & Design, Graybox combines the acoustical precision of world-class commercial spaces with the comfort and vibe of a private home studio.

“We came to Vintage King and were like, ‘We need to do this thing right—how do we outfit this space to fit our needs?’ Barefoot was always at the top of my shortlist. As soon as I started seeing Barefoots and people's spaces, I was just like, ‘Those are some sweet monitors. I would love to have a pair of those one day.’”

Don’t let its cozy vibe fool you—Graybox is loaded with some impressive gear. Barefoot Footprint 01 studio monitors deliver powerful sound in a compact, affordable package that’s perfect for smaller studio spaces. Hunter’s desk is kitted out with preamps from SSL, API, Neve and RND, in addition to a versatile Universal Audio LA-610 channel strip.

In our latest Inside Look, we spoke with Hunter about what it was like building out his dream studio: “It's been a huge gift to let Graybox come to life over the last couple of years and Vintage King has been such a big part of that. Steven, my Audio Consultant helped hand-select the gear for this setup and had such a hand in making this space what it is.”
