Recording and Mastering

“Just spent three days recording a BBC Radio 4 drama at Crown Studio – can’t recommend it highly enough! A fantastic venue, fully wheelchair accessible, with great friendly staff who looked after us brilliantly (thank you John Merriman!), making us feel completely at home. It’s an excellent outfit, with top professional standards, combined with a down to earth friendly atmosphere. Also liked the commitment to recycling and environmental awareness.”  Polly Thomas, BBC 4

Crown Lane is an exceptional studio. John and the team are incredibly accommodating to our huge drama casts and bizarre recording requests. John’s outstanding technical knowledge for recording and mastering is excellent, he displays a high level of commitment to all our projects. It’s also one of the only accessible non BBC studios in London – for that we are incredibly grateful.”  Eloise Whitmore, MD / Sound Designer, Naked Productions

“Crown Lane Studios is a small but truly wonderful, accessible (physically and economically) gem tucked around the corner from Morden station.  It is welcoming, comfortable and houses skilled recording equipment and staff. I have always loved my time there and you are so well looked after.”  Jenny Sealey, Artistic Director, Graeae Theatre Company

We are really pleased with ‘Purple’ and think you did a great job – particularly from recording to mastering with some of the bits of funky tuning. Always a real pleasure working with you.” Inner Voices

Big thanks. I really really enjoyed the recording session today.  Most of all working with you. What a great ear and technical know-how you have. Plus a pretty damn cool personality.” Mike Porter, Jersey Boys


“Great equipment, friendly staff the perfect place to rehearse…”  Sean Cooper

We have done our gig and it went very well, partly because of you! Thank you for providing such good rehearsing facilities – good gear, clean, good sound, good AC… perfect.”  James Martin Band

Cracking practice room, well equipped and friendly staff. Can’t fault it!” Tom Mann

“I love that it is a ‘green’ studio. The rehearsals are 100% powered by hydro-electric power. Even the carpet cleaner is chemical free! Which brings me to another very important point. The place is always clean AND tidy. I have been to so many studios which could take a lesson from this and were way more expensive! Its a big thing that John and staff are always genuinely welcoming, helpful and professional. I thoroughly recommend!”  Ed Pereira
