“I recorded my CD of favourite songs from the musicals at the Studio and was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of both Ken and Mick.
They made me very welcome and confident with their first-class efficiency.”

David R.

“First class service and excellent value. I use the studio for the pre_recorded voice-overs for a DIY chain instore radio. The studio Barnsley has even written backing tunes that fit perfectly with the voice-overs, if you need jingles then the studio Barnsley is the place. If you are looking for a voice over for your project just ask the studio Barnsley. Well done brilliant service every time”

Michaela S.

“Had two albums, and my ABBA backing tracks produced using this studio. Such a welcoming and professional environment. They can write any genre of tracks, and to such high standards.”
