I give it a 5 because its is sturdy, well-designed and beautiful, even though the price seems high. First delivery was damaged by shipping gorillas, so StudioDesk sent out another. Goes together easy once you figure out the concept. I put it together myself, but there's a critical step or two I'd recommend a helper. One of my legs was missing half the screw inserts so had to steal from unused others. The cable tray was tweaked considerably, but nothing a workbench with vice and mallet couldn't fix. The neighbors happen to have a large construction trash bin out front, so I was able to dump the shipping pallet. Now that I'm installing my hardware, getting power squared away, running cables, etc. the desk looks gorgeous. Plenty of desk space on the sides of the mixer, monitor placement is perfect, good hardware access - quite impressive really. If you can afford it, it is recommended
Very much pleased with my purchase. the piece arrived quickly within promised window and the desk is even better than i had anticipated.
Thank you Andrew! We love to hear that from you! StudioDesk team
I don't know where to start, so let me just say right off the bat that this thing is GORGEOUS. I mean, *seriously* beautiful. It's just as much a work of art as it is a piece of studio furniture. Also, it's made so damn good that you could probably land a 747 on it. I've had my eye on this desk for several months now, and I'm not sorry one single bit that I bought it. I LOVE IT.
I wasn't sure that it was going to make it intact all the way from Europe to Portland, Oregon, but they really do a good job packing each part individually in separate cardboard boxes, and then those boxes in an ENORMOUS wooden crate/palate. The desk was pretty simple to assemble after watching their instructional video, and I was able to set it up with a friend in under a couple of hours.
This is the second large studio desk I've owned in my 22 year career, and I'm pretty certain that it will probably be the last. Unlike IKEA furniture (which doesn't make it past one move), this desk is built solidly, and will be a centerpiece in my studio until I either die from natural causes, or Trump blows us all up first.
Also, I'd like to add that Danny is a super nice guy... and he deserves all the success in the world with this company :) <3
Jesse, WOW! What an awesome review you left. You put a smile on the whole team and gave us a courage and strength to continue doing what we love and know the best.
Thank you so much! Stay well and creative.
