Situated in West London, the studios have 3 main rooms (labeled 1, 2 and 4!)  each having a unique feel and atmosphere which is appreciated by regular clients such as Elton John and many new acts from a vide variety of fields.  All rooms are equipped with SSL consoles and were designed by studio design guru, Sam Toyashima.  Studio Two has just been completely re-built and now features a new  5.1  SSL 8000G+.

The recording areas in Studio One and Four feature electronically controlled room ambience adjustment and have a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.  Perfect for a nervous singer!

It's very easy to get carried away when writing about the virtues of such a great studio.  It's probably better to watch our video tour and interviews shot at Townhouse and then take a trip over to their web site for all of the equipment listings.

 

They're all very friendly down at the Townhouse and we have to ask ourselves if this is this the British Ocean Way?  We think it's at least that good!

Although it's a top World class studio, don't be afraid to call to arrange to take a tour!  Once you've chatted with the great people that work there and have seen it for yourself, you'll be so pleased you did!

 

The studios are great and have such a fantastic vibe you must pay a visit to check them out.  Click here to visit their web site for more info.
