Studio Rates

“Wait, where are the rates? I hate when there is a link to “rates” and there are no posted rates.” We know how you feel, seriously.

The fact is, we used to post rates, but ended up never really following them. So, our rates are always negotiable and depend on the scope of the project and the budget.

We have found that spending a few minutes talking about your projects is the fairest and most accurate way to give a rate/cost. Please contact us to discuss your project.


A Few Helpful Guidlines


Preparing to Go Into the Studio

The more of these you pay attention to, the better your end product will be.

-Use new drum heads. Please don’t show up
with heads that have been gigged/practiced on for 3 months.
-Get your guitar’s intonation checked and bring new strings.
-Practice to a click track.
-Rehearse your songs.
-Have all your songs written.
-Leave your signifcant other/groupies at home.



We usually expect an amount of money at the start of the project. This figure is negotiated but is usually half of the estimate. The balance is then required at project completion.


Billable Time

The clock begins when the engineer starts working. Working includes: setting up equipment and microphones, getting levels, session setup and instrument prep, if necessary (drum tuning, guitar setup, etc.). If during long sessions you wish to take a meal break, you may do so off the clock. The engineer may choose to eat and work at the same time.


Starting Time

It is essential that you arrive at the time of your scheduled session start, or better yet, early. Barring any extreme situations, you will be billed from the scheduled session start time, whether you are there or not.

No product leaves the studio until payment has been made in full.

As soon as payment is received for any work done, the work is yours, and can be delivered to you in any format you wish. (CD, DVD, MP3, OGG, FLAC, WAV, PUT ON THE WEB, FLASH-DRIVE, etc…)

Cash, Check and Paypal excepted.
