The acoustics of the drum room have been optimized for a tight and natural sounding kit, with just enough ambience for a feeling of space.

Our drum mic collection includes some of the worlds best microphones for acoustic drum kits, and we are able to provide a complete setup of 14 drum channels. These are fed to a pair of Focusrite Octopres which provide premium quality preamps and full dynamics control on all channels.
