The Rhoom Studios – Studio 2
In the studio
Studio 2 is the second-largest of the four studios, measuring 6.5m x 5m. It underwent a considerable renovation mid-2017 and is an ideal practice space for bands with 4 to 6 members. It is open seven days a week, 9am to 11pm (Studios 3 and 4 are open 24/7).
How does it sound?
Studio 2 has a very controlled sound. We chose to leave the timber beams of the ceiling exposed in order to help diffuse some of the natural floor-to-ceiling reflections. The walls have been treated with specialist acoustic wall diffusers, which help to break up any unwanted echo in the room. Overall, it’s a very well balanced room – ideal if you want to set up for a recording session.
What’s in Studio 2?
Studio 2 comes equipped everything you’d expect from a music rehearsal room. We have a powerful floor-standing 3-way JBL PA system so that your vocals and keyboards have plenty of room in the mix. There’s two vocal microphones, XLR cables and three mic stands. A Mapex Meridian Birch drum kit in fusion sizes, with three cymbal stands, a hi-hat stand and a snare drum (you can hire cymbals for £1 per hour). Two 4×12 guitar cabs are in the Studio – Laney LV300 heads are available to hire at £2 per session so that you don’t need to bring your own amp. Finally, a powerful Ashdown MAG300 bass amp with a 4×10 Ashdown cab.
Note: We do occasionally switch equipment between the four Studios but the items listed above are typically found in Studio 2.
Do I need to book in advance?
Studio 2 is popular during mid-week evenings. We recommend trying to book perhaps a week in advance to guarantee the session time you want. Please check the Studio calendar before placing a booking request.
