Haim show you their favourite vintage gear in a studio tour

Reverb recently visited HAIM's studio where they've created a mix of living room feel (the sisters created their debut album in their lounge at home), vintage gear and great sound. 

Their setup includes the Altec-Lansing 604E studio monitor speakers from LA's Sound Factory studios that were reportedly used to mix Neil Young's Rockin' In The Free World, 1960s Silvertone U-1 guitars ("one of the easiest guitars I've ever played", says Alana Haim) ,  a Linndrum inspired by the trio's love of Prince, Este Haim's 1973 Fender Precision Bass and 1970s Italian conga drums. 

Music tech legend Roger Linn: “I rarely listen to anything with drum machines in it”
