Can we assume that this studio is the one in which Bix recorded four sides with the Wolverines and the two Sioux City Six sides in 1924 and that all four acoustic horns were used? Having those four horns had to be something like having multiple microphones. Those six sides seem to me to be better recordings than those from the Richmond Studio, and I'm assuming the number of recording horns had something to do with that.

The photo of the studio in 1923 shows only one horn. I imagine that the arrangement of five horns for the 1925 recording sessions of the New York Philharmonic was specifically designed for such a large group of musicians.

I am afraid I don't have photos of the OKeh recording studios. But here is an article about the location of the studios in New York City.

I'm sorry that I didn't ask earlier, but what are those devices hanging down from the ceiling? A technician seems to be doing something to one of them in the first photo.
