What to I need to bring to a rehearsal?
All of our rehearsal rooms come supplied as standard with a Natal drum kit, Hartke bass amp, Blackstar guitar amp and full PA system with mics. Drummers will need their drum sticks and cymbals, guitarists will need their guitars and cables and as per usual lazy singers don’t need to bring anything :-)
What if I need to cancel a booking?
Rock Hard Studios operates a 48 hour cancellation policy for ALL bookings. If you cancel within 48 hours of a booking start time you will be charged 50% of the bookings value. If you cancel within 24 hours of a booking start time you will be charged the full price of your booking.
My band have recorded elsewhere and it hasn’t turned out well, why is RHMG different?
Have you had a bad experience recording at another studio? Didn’t come out with what you hoped for?
If so we may be able to fix it for you. Over the years we have remastered badly done jobs for many bands who have been let down by other studio's. If a different studio has left you feeling disappointed with your final tracks, just bring us the wav files. We know all the tricks to rework your tracks!
How long do I need in the studio?
This is often the most difficult question to answer. The things that take up a lot of time in this studio are:
- Complex requirements of production/arrangement.
- Technically difficult music.
- Getting a good drum sound from a badly maintained/tuned drum kit.
- Out of tune guitars.
- Repeated "re-takes" due to lack rehearsal/expertise.
- Equipment failure.
- Too many drugs.
- Too much booze.
- Interference/distractions from friends, outsiders and hangers on.
Do you need a deposit for bookings?
For rehearsal room bookings we often just ask clients to pay when they arrive for their rehearsal however for all other bookings ie, recordings and Pop Star Parties we take a deposit of 10% of the booking which is non refundable should you cancel the booking.
