Yours for the day

Experiment with our large collection of vintage and modern instruments to find just the right tone for your track.

Every project presents unique possibilities in mic choice and placement. We have over 30 different types of condenser, dynamic, and ribbon microphones to ensure that the sounds you record come together to make a sonically rich document that reflects your style.

Let go of the mouse and get your hands on the board

Our mixer is a 36 Channel Soundcraft board with six auxes and eightbuses. Each channel has high and low shelf EQ, dual parametric EQ, low cut filter, and phase reversal. The board is capable of mixing 24 outputs from ProTools, allowing a mix "performance" to be recorded to 2-track.

Along with all the gear

At Dryhill, we've spent a lot of time getting to know how cool gear and a warm space can come together to inspire. Our goal is to keep the musician focused on the performance and not let the technology get in the way.

Get an idea of what we record here.
