We're good at vintage sound. The studio is spacious and comfortable, with a control room, a live room and a high ceilinged recreation space at the back that can also serve as a second live room. In addition the back room has alternative access to the studio for heavy equipment and instruments. Click on the links to the right to see details of the equipment we have for use in the studio.
