We offer clients a comfortable and creative environment for writing, playing and recording.

There is no time constraint to your booking – you can book an hour, a day, a week, whatever you want. Please call us with any enquiries or to discuss your project.

The 'vibe' is relaxed and informal - we're a small, independent studio and have enjoyed working successfully with bands, both local and from further afield, for over two decades.

Our resident engineer, Dave Curle, has over twenty years experience recording bands, solo artists and a myriad of other projects.

Studio Equipment

We are currently running a Pro Tools TDM HD2 Accel system (96 tracks @ 96kHz, 16 analogue i/o's with Pro Tools 10HD software), giving us the ability to produce industry- standard quality material which can sit comfortably side by side with any studio in the business.

We have literally thousands of pounds worth of microphones, instruments, outboard units & plug-ins, from vintage gems, classics, to state-of-the-art.

We strive to achieve the best balance between up-to-date digital systems and classic analogue / valve, with the emphasis always on getting the right sound for you.
