    Thanks Tony. Sure, I should have listed that info in my original post.

    The desk is 4' wide, 2' deep and 32" high. The rack space is 4U so I have some room to expand (before getting rid of things). Now I wish it was a little wider (6' would have been better), but it will do for now. The keyboard is a new addition since I planned the desk so I might end up putting it away when I'm not using it. The other thing I didn't anticipate is how large the monitors would be on the shelf. My old setup had them sitting on the bottom part of the "desk". They look really huge on the new desk. I also have some KRK Rokit 5's, but the BX8's sound so much better.

    I play the guitar :shred: and write and record rock/metal music for fun at home. The keyboard helps with other software instruments and sometimes to get a drum beat figured out. I'll post some pics of my guitars (I'm a lefty) at some point too.

    Thanks again for the reply.

    Very nice. What are those big mixers under the speakers?

    On the left it's a Behringer Patchbay, a Presonus Studio Channel (Tube) channel strip, and my Tascam US-1800 interface.

    On the right it's a Behringer rack mixer, Dbx compressor and an Alesis Quadraverb.

    I just purchased a POD HD Pro X that will replace the Quadraverb and maybe the rack mixer.

    I ned to update my pictures but the first one is a panoramic without the 4x12 EVH cab and the 2nd has the cab but doesn't include my computers/desk. I also use a 13" Macbook Pro with my Windows machines. I like Audacity on Windows but Garageband is a big step up on the Mac...I'll update my photos when I get home from work:

    I just re-designed my studio a bit...still a work in progress. I was feeling cramped with the EVH+Cab so close to my desk (See pics above). I just restructured few things to open up the room a bit. It made a BIG difference! Being a school teacher I am off for the summer so I will spend more time making things tidy. I am thinking of getting that Studio RTA Producer's Desk to replace my L-Shaped Desk. My desk is sagging a bit bus I like the rack system on the RTA desk. I decide once summer vacation hits.
