Rates and Offers

We are all delighted – and seriously impressed, given the studios we’ve recorded in and engineers we’ve worked with.

— James Keen

At Echo Studios we aim to keep our rates competitive, without sacrificing quality. Please contact the studio for more information and advice on how much time to book.

  • Hourly rate (min. 2 hour booking) – £45.00
  • Single day – £190.00
  • Single day (dry hire without engineer) – £125.00

All days are eight hours long, although longer days can be arranged in advance for an extra cost. The dry hire rate is available to any competent artist, engineer or producer and includes assistance at the start of the session if required.

Echo is consistently busy and usually books a minimum of a month ahead, so please book any studio time as early as possible to avoid disappointment. If you have specific dates in mind then please contact the studio a minimum of six weeks in advance.

We can accept credit / debit cards, paypal, cash or cheque. A deposit is required to confirm a booking. All of our studio prices include an engineer (except for the dry hire rate) and use of all the studios instruments.


Production Package

If you would like to work with a producer in the studio then please email production@echostudios.org.uk to discuss your project and receive a quote. Each package will be specifically tailored to every artist, with the quality of the recording paramount. For more information on what our Production Package includes, and to hear samples of recordings produced by Jamie, please see the production page.


Last minute deals

Sometimes sessions need to be cancelled at the last minute. On these occasions we can offer this studio time at a reduced rate on a first come first served basis, so join the mailing list (at the bottom of the page), like the Facebook page or follow us on Twitter to hear about them before anyone else!


Data Policy

Any audio you record at Echo is entirely yours to take away in the format it was recorded (usually as wav files in Pro Tools). If you require your files in another format there will be a cost for this service.

We strongly recommend that you take a copy of your material once your project is complete. At Echo we aim to keep all material from studio sessions for a minimum of five years as a courtesy to our clients. However, this is not guaranteed. We cannot accept any responsibility for any lost data once a project has been completed.


Cancellation & Refund Policy

A 30% deposit is required to confirm every booking. Any booking cancelled up to two weeks before the session date can be transferred to another date, once only. However, if no further booking is made the deposit will be lost. Any bookings cancelled less than two weeks before the session date will lose their deposit. Bookings cancelled less than seven days before the session date will need to be paid in full (at the studio’s discretion).

At Echo we’re not happy unless our customers are. If you are not entirely satisfied with your recording, simply contact the studio within ten days of the session and we’ll provide extra studio time for you to make corrections. Unfortunately this offer does not extend to contributing factors that are beyond the studios control (for example performance quality or lack of appropriate time booked).

Echo Studios does not save any financial information from its clients.
