Studio

What's the point of having a great sounding kit if most of the world can't hear it?

That was the thought that went through Sean's head when he first starting building his studio. More than a decade later and spending enough on studio gear to triple the cost of his kit, Sean then had a project studio worthy of his drums.

But Sean wasn't content to stop there, and further upgraded his studio over the course of a 2nd decade, building what is a truly professional sounding studio.

Sean goes into detail on the decision making process in buying gear for his studio on his youtube channel. More content is being added all the time, so be sure to subscribe to catch the latest
