Free Studio Walk Through:
We recommend you visit us if you are looking to use our recording services.

This gives us a chance to talk about how best to capture your sound, under the given timeline and budget, especially if you have any extra requirements, e.g. Studio musician hire, gear hire, abnormal booking times etc.

The last reassurance you get when visiting us, is the fact that what you see is what you get. We are no bedroom studio, (unlike our humble beginnings in 1997), but a dual studio facility, of professional construction.

We are also happy to answer any questions via e-mail and via the phone.

Email is usually the fastest way to get a response, as I'm often in a recording session and don't want to interrupt the process.
