At many studios, part of the reason for high session rates is to pay for all the top-end equipment the studio owns - even if you aren't going to use half of it on your project. By keeping our core equipment load to a minimum, we can keep the cost of your project more affordable. After your FREE consultation regarding your project, the gear we use can be tailored to capture your sound the way you want it heard.
