Facilities & Rates

Here at Metway recording studios, we offer clients both Analogue and Digital multi-track recording – catering for bands that require both vintage reel-to-reel coloration and pristine, high fidelity recordings.

Equipment Rates


Our expansive microphone collection includes classic ribbons and large diaphragm valve condensers. If there are specific microphones that you require for your project, Metway is able to hire these in on your behalf.


We have a range of in-house backline that is available to all our clients. This includes vintage amplification and classic drums. Much of the backline can be set up for you in our large live room prior to your session so all you need to do is turn up and start recording. Please contact us for further information on your specific backline requirements.


Metway enjoys modern studio facilities to make your time here relaxing and entertaining including wireless Internet and a computer workstation area as well as a bar and games area which houses table football and a full size pool table.
