Recording

Prices too good to be true??

Check out my past work on the SAMPLES page

Due to numerous requests I have added pricing for smaller blocks of studio time:

1 hour = $40

2 hours = $60

3 hours = $80

4 hours = $100

4 hours or more = $25 an hour

Pricing pertains to Audio Production, Video Shooting/Editing, Photography.

4 hour studio recording block Just $100 or $200 a song* so you can take the time to get it right! Good equipment, good prices and a fellow musician/engineer who has shared your experiences as a studio client on the DFW music scene for over 20 years.

I feel the high priced mega-studios are missing the point. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they sound great BUT if you can only afford to record half a song at $50 to $100 an hour they have FAILED to meet YOUR needs as a LOCAL musician. I’ve kept my prices the same for over a decade not because I don’t think I’m worth more but because I want to record more. Walt Disney said “I don’t make movies to make money, I make money to make more movies”. That pretty much sums up my attitude towards making albums.

Back in the early days I was a mobile recording studio. Having an exceptionally convenient and low cost studio solution helped clients to over look my lack of experience. Having roughly 20 years of “paid dues” as a guitarist on the local music scene helped to make me a quick study as I learned recording “on the fly”. I read every audio engineering book and watched every instructional video I could get my hands on.

Those early days were unforgettable and lots of fun. Check out the Audio Samples page to check out the archived recordings from 2002 onward.

* $200 a song rate not to exceed 10 hours.
