Recording and Rehearsal Studios in Edinburgh

Great places in Edinburgh for recording your music and preparing for gigs.

At Drum Lessons Edinburgh there is almost nothing that means more to us than when a student tells us they're taking the next big step and going into a recording studio for the first time.

A recording is a special opportunity for any musician but can sometimes be quite an intimidating process when you're surrounded by experienced professionals in a professional environment. We believe the best studios for our students are ones which are capable of providing a professional sound for a fair price whilst at the same time making our students feel comfortable in what can be a daunting experience for some. We've found a few studios in Edinburgh that we feel meet these criteria - enjoy.

Banana Row Studios

Banana Row Studios is one of Edinburgh's most visited rehearsal and recording centres. Built with functionality in mind and situated in the heart of the capital, the facility offers a professional finish to your sound and provides state of the art equipment for talent from around the country. There are services available for recording and mixing, overdubs and track mastering at rates of £30/hr and rehearsal rooms to hire for VERY reasonable prices - some of the rates they offer here for rehearsing beat most other rehearsal rooms nationwide, which could be key if you're neighbours can't cope with the amount of noise that's coming from your bedroom.

Banana Row Studios, 43-47 Eyre Place, Edinburgh, EH3 5EY.

Telephone: 0131 5572088


Castlesound Studios

Castlesound Studios offer recording services and have been doing so for over 40 years. Based in the countryside about 20 minutes from Edinburgh, they provide a quite unique environment in which sound can be recorded within spacious, daylit rooms as opposed to the purpose-built crampy studios of the inner city.

The studio itself has been developed over the years and refined many times to achieve the famous acoustic quality the rooms possess today. Again they provide a full in-depth equipment list and are very proud of the work they do, offering not just recording but also mastering to help your sound achieve that professional on-the-shelf feel. 

CastleSound Studios, Main Street, Pencaitland, City of Edinburgh, EH34 5DW.
