Recording and Rehearsal Studios

Recording and Rehearsal Studios

It’s a daunting prospect recording a record if you haven’t done it before. Because many our students often go on to form bands, here at Guitar Lessons Norwich have a little experience in working with recording studios and we’d love to impart some of our knowledge on to you, just to give you a little push in the right direction. 

Purple Studios is a high-end, premier recording studio with everything you could possibly need to put out a new hit LP. As well as all the other mandatory recording equipment which comes with nearly every recording studio, Purple studios have the peculiar benefit of providing its own accommodation for up to 5 people. If you’re looking to hole yourself up for a couple of days whilst your creative juices flow, there is no better studio in Norwich for you. This allows them to cater for everyone needs and they offer services that cross boundaries between all music types, from classic analogue facilities to bang up to date digital technology. If you want to have a look for yourself, have a look at Purple Studios, Old Parish Hall, The Street, Trowse, Norwich, NR14 8SX.

Plug Studios prides itself on its indie credentials. Flying the face of Simon Cowell and X Factor, Plug claims that it bucks the mainstream and provides an environment where your personal tastes and styles have the freedom to express themselves. The fact that they aim to cater for all recording artists is reflected in their amazingly reasonable prices; in the summer, you can enjoy 3 hours of recording time for only £21 (air conditioning included.). Plug boasts three different recording studios, allowing them to accommodate all shapes and sizes of bands and the different combinations of equipment are reflected in the prices, allowing you to create a recording set-up which mirrors your price budget and musical style. If you think Plug could be the studio for your next indie EP, head down to 6-9 Kingsway, City Trading Estate, Norwich, Norfolk NR2 4UE today.

11a Studios is about as DIY as it gets. Located in David Royse’s shed, it provides a local and fully qualified sound engineer, with everything a band could need.

You aren’t going to get better prices than this anywhere else in Norwich, making this the perfect studio for bands recording their first EP or garage-rock purists looking for a low-fi ambience.

Sugati Sound is a small studio but is well equipped with multi-track recording capability, acoustically conditioned room and qualified sound engineer.
