THE LODGE

With a vast vaulted ceiling and 30’ high windows, this stunning control room will take your breath away. It allows up to six players to record alongside the producer and engineer. But don’t be fooled by the size, this room sounds accurate in every way. That’s why countless gold and plati- num albums have been recorded in the Lodge.

This superb recording room boasts a 22’ ceiling with hardwood and stone finishes. We’ve recorded 21-piece string sections, 30-piece choirs and some of the best sounding drum tracks you can imagine. Then there’s our Yamaha C7 piano and vintage Hammond B3 offering sounds that will inspire.
