HenHouse Studios

Designed And Built From The Ground Up ...

In response to the evolving landscape of the music industry, both here in the UK and worldwide, I felt there was a need for a live room designed and built from the ground up solely for drums. Henhouse Studios is just that: a purpose-built drum tracking studio, specifically engineered to achieve the best possible sound for live drum kit recording. 

It can be challenging to capture drum recordings due to both time and budgetary constraints, but Henhouse Studios provides producers and artists with the freedom and flexibility to incorporate live drums into their tracks… something that could only be achieved by programmed or looped alternatives in the past.

Live Room

Meticulously Designed and Engineered

The live room within Henhouse Studios is a controlled environment that is perfect for recording live drums, and at over 90m2 has been meticulously designed and engineered with this sole focus. It features a double-story high-vaulted ceiling that has been acoustically treated to authentically capture the full sound and resonance of a live drum kit but in a perfectly controlled environment. The additional option to bring close panels and screens (GIK ACOUSTICS) around the kit gives the perfect variation of a close mic’d, dry kit also, but vstill having the room mics to blend to taste.

The addition of strategically placed room microphones pick up every nuance in the kit, effectively conveying the energy, passion and emotion that brings my drum kit to life on your track.
