Recording and Rehearsal Studios in Bristol

It's a satisfying day for a guitar teacher when one of their students starts creating music of their own.

The world of recording can be a complicated one: with so many places to choose from with different equipment and prices, how do you know which studio to go for?

So, like the guardian angels we are, we’ve put together a list of Bristol’s best studios for you to help you out!

Room 4 Studios

Room 4 Studios is situated at 145a Whitehall Road, Bristol, BS5 9BJ and has everything a band would possibly need to record an EP. Not only does Room 4 double up as a rehearsal and recording space, but it also hires out equipment for bands who want to put on live shows. This hire service is very good value: you can hire a Vox AC30 (as used by Brian May, Johnny Greenwood, The Edge etc) for a £35/day and a fully operational Peavey PA system for the only £30/day. Prices for recording are reasonable, although they do not offer a pay-as-you-go service that some studios offer, but this reflects the quality service that Room 4 provides. A day’s worth of recording costs £150, which is less than £20 an hour! Look at their EP deals for £500 as well; if you’re looking to produce more than just a couple of tracks, this is the most cost-effective way to do it in Bristol.
