I'd recommend this studio to anyone, from Rock and Rollers to Church Choirs. The staff are 100% professional and easy to work with. Our experience in the Blast Furnace was thoroughly enjoyable with no hic-ups at all.
Any bands that are looking to record a demo, save up your pennys and get these guys. Worth every cent.
We luv this place, Mik, Rory and Kwa couldn't be more accommodating, rescheduling a session for us with virtually no notice, due to a kicking, and soooo easy to work and get along with
Jaysus, just had a look at the new BF and it looks the ticket.
I tell you what Mik, we'll be back up soon, so expect a phone call and some serious haggling for a good deal... ;)
We have just completed a two day stint at this place with Mik. What can i say except that the man is a complete pro and our time spent in the studio was productive from start to finish.
Go...you won't regret it.
