In The Nook Records
In The Nook Records is a relaxed and friendly recording studio in South Croydon. The studio is open plan and designed for small ensemble recording. The space can be re-arranged to suit your project. Matt will be your host. He can engineer tracking sessions and offers mixing/mastering services.
There's a drum kit, percussion, guitars, electric piano, analog synths, drum machine, amps, pedals, loads of great mics and outboard gear all available for use. There is also an isolation booth, drum screen and baffles to limit bleed. The room sound is moderately dry allowing good control but it can be expanded to aircraft hangar proportions with a real plate reverb unit.
The space includes air conditioning and mood lighting to keep everyone comfortable and in the zone. There's a toilet, kitchen, chill out garden and friendly poodle called Freddo who will probably come and say hello.
The location is very close to Purley Oaks and Sanderstead train stations with regular services to London Victoria & London Bridge. There's free on-street parking nearby, a rear access road for loading/unloading and plenty of shops in the area. For block bookings there's a travelodge at the end of the street offering fairly cheap accommodation.
If you're a small ensemble, vocalist, solo instrumentalist or anyone creative looking for a laid back recording space on a tight budget please get in touch.
