Beyond the music.
At Soundhouse Recording Studio Liverpool we care about our clients needs.

  • Secure private off road parking.
  • Private outside seating.
  • 24/7 Security cameras.
  • Large green room with open kitchen area.
  • Slate bed pool table, table top football.
  • Ample seating and eating areas.
  • Large ground floor foyer.
  • Air conditioning.

In terms of musical creature comforts we want drummers to have the best of the best in terms of the instrument so we have two house kits and several beautiful snare drums, The big decision we took was to acquire a vintage Ludwig kit to cover all bases.

For our guitarists the hardest part of any set up is choosing and setting up amps and speakers whilst being able to monitor what the resulting sound is like through control room monitors. To ensure choice we have over 8 iconic amps and an amp switcher. Press a selector button and jump immediately to another amp or speaker.  We have set aside a “guitar” area in the control room with all amps within arms reach of the player.
