The enviable younger sister of the 301 family, Studio One in Byron Bay is the wonderful combination of a large recording room, vintage Neve console and proximity to one of Australia’s most desirable beachside towns.

The main recording space includes a Yamaha C7 grand piano, Hammond organ with leslie cabinet, rhodes piano and is surrounded by 2 isolation booths and a lounge room – which doubles as an alternate recording space with high ceilings and natural light.

The 28/24 Neve console is equipped with 1081 preamp/EQ’s and is the heritage listed mid-70’s console from Festival Studios in Sydney. Alongside the console, a large portion of Festival’s original outboard gear continues to be maintained, in conjunction with a collection of newer studio essentials.
