Elite Studio A

Elite Studio A is also the main live-room for Smash Recording. It is acoustically designed with wood accents on the walls, floated concreted floor for full isolation, two large windows offering natural light (with curtains), acoustic Yamaha Piano, and top-pro level gear. Vintage and modern amps offer a great variety for all guitarists. Pro-level PA, 3 monitor mixes, and Sennheiser microphones give the studio the amplitude and quality to enhance vocals. Elite Studio A will enhance your productive experience and creativity. As always, Smash’s Professional staff is ready to assist in your session by simply picking up the dedicated direct-dial phone in any studio.
