Expanding our well-established Phoenix Sound studios, we have recently opened a rehearsal room at the Serentyaudio location just outside Chippenham in Wiltshire.
Fully equipped with sound and lighting, we offer a stage-like feeling to make it feel like a live gig. – Perfect for that crucial pre-show preparation – or just for fun!
The room has been acoustically treated to sound great. – Not too ‘live’ and not too ‘dead’.
We offer a full 4-way monitoring system (four separate mixes for individual needs), a selection of back line amplifiers and a drum kit. If required, additional equipment is available to hire for your session.
Owner Danny will be there throughout your setup to do a sound check and make sure you are happy with everything so you can concentrate on your music.
The studio was built during lockdown so a lot of thought was put in it to make it Covid-19 friendly. Up to 5 people can fit easily while maintaining social distancing.
All the equipment is sanitised before and after each session. For convenience, a hand sanitising station is installed by the door.
The Technical Stuff…
Sound equipment specification
We use a Yamaha digital mixing desk to store your settings ready for your next visit – saving you setup time.
We also offer multitrack live recording sessions for mixdown and mastering at our studios. Please ask for details.
“As a sound engineer myself, with many years of touring and live sound experience, I believe the best way to provide sound in a rehearsal situation is to have a clear individual mix.
For this reason, we do not have the standard PA system used in many rehearsal rooms.
Instead, we provide a four-way monitoring system with four individual mixes, EQ and FX plus all the necessary cables and accessories although, due to coronavirus, we ask you to bring your own mic. – It’s nothing personal!”
If you need to practice with a PA system, we do have various options available. Once again, please ask for details.
We have a full Tama kit. Drummers are expected to bring their own breakables, i.e. snare drum, cymbals, sticks and kick pedal although all of these can be hired for a small rental fee per session.
There’s a mix of Marshall, Laney, Orange and Fender amps for guitarists and bass players available to hire per session. – Ideal for musicians who like to travel light!
