Basement Studio is an extremely well equipped recording studio based in beautiful Wimborne Dorset. We are perfectly set up for music production, band tracking and mixing/mastering. We have a cosy, multi-room layout with line of sight throughout, a lovely array of both modern and vintage mics, preamps, outboard and instruments, providing a “best of both worlds” recording environment, a “no compromise” signal chain ensuring the best possible quality from start to finish.
