The live room is great to get a big and punchy drum sound. There is a choice of drum kits to cater towards different sounds including a Pearl Masters and older PDP drum kit, Mapex Black Panther Steel snare drum, lots of percussion (shakers, tambourines, wood blocks etc). .
There is also a lovely sounding upright piano, organ, harmonium, and a selection of vintage synths from Moog..
Microphones from Nuemann, Shure, Sennheiser, Cascade, Brauner, AKG, SE Electronics and much more. The acoustics of the live room can be changed by the addition of more acoustic panels. This is great for capturing an intimate acoustic guitar performance. Alternatively, the room can also be altered to allow more reverb, which can be great for group vocals and big roomy drums.
There are two isolation booths in the studio. The first isolation booth is primarily used for recording guitar cabinets and combo amps. It's a very dry sounding room with very little reverb. The second booth is primarily used for vocals and quieter instruments, it's reverb time is even smaller which makes it great for capturing intimate performances.
There are guitar cabinets from Marshall, Orange, Fender, Selmer, Ampeg and Vox.
Studio B is Mark's second, smaller studio space. Sessions here are run by an assistant and then passed over to Mark for editing, mixing and mastering. Studio B boasts a comfortable and cosy environment and some hand picked staple equipment pieces mirroring Studio A.
