Q. What should I do to prepare for my session?
Being prepared for a recording session makes everyone's life easier. Making sure that you're prepared musically comes first and foremost, and creating a timeline or schedule for your session can help keep everyone on track. Additionally, providing your engineer with as many details as possible regarding the instrumentation of the musicians can help cut down setup time at the start of your session.

Q. Can I use the instruments listed on your Gear page during my session?
You're welcome to use any instruments and amps listed in our Gear section during your session. If you plan to use our instruments or amps, please let us know ahead of time so we can make sure that they'll be available.
Q. Can I sleep at the studio overnight?
NO. While we realize that a recording session could run until the wee hours of the morning, we do not have accommodations at the studio for our clients. However, there are a number of hotels and quaint New England bed & breakfasts in the area which we are happy to suggest.
Q. Can I smoke inside the studio?
Smoking is NOT ALLOWED inside of the studio. You're welcome to smoke yourself silly outside, though. Just be respectful and dispose of your butts in the designated areas.
Q. Do you allow food & drink inside the studio?
We do. We just ask that you please be careful while you're around our equipment. We have a lounge and kitchenette area which we prefer you leave your food, but don't mind the occasional coffee or bag of chips in the studio.
Q. Are you available for studio tours?
Of course! We're happy to give studio tours, but we ask that you make an appointment if you'd like to come to check the place out.
Q. Can we come in the night before to set up?
Nope. Your session begins at the time that you agreed upon with our staff, and while we are usually fine with you arriving a little early, we account setup & tear-down time in your booking.
Q. Can I bring my own engineer for my session?
Absolutely. If you would like to bring your own engineer for a session, please let us know when you book your session. We will have a short conversation with your engineer to give them an idea of how we run things around here.
Q. What else is in the area?
We are a stone's throw away from the Wachusett Mountain National Park, which is home to miles of hiking trails and a ski resort in the winter months. We encourage you to take advantage of the getaway lifestyle that our local area embraces. There are a number of restaurants in the area, as well as the Wachusett Brewery which offers tours daily.
