Recording Studio

Get ready for an awe-inspiring and totally immersive music experience.

The KYOTO recording studio is a beautiful, unique and world-class recording studio, hiding in
the stunning 22 - acre Larkins farm in Essex. Just 15mins drive from Shenfield station.
Having spent decades in recording studios we know what’s needed to make great music –
we’ve used this extensive know-how to design an unrivalled creative space.

We’ve combined old school brilliance like our analogue MCI 500 Rev D console, previously owned
by John Entwhisle from The Who, alongside the latest tech and some brilliant instruments –
including Arigato guitars.

As a passionate lover of all things drums, Glen has created this studio with recording drums
at the very heart. Including a very special innovation… : Introducing…the Drumbrella.

The Drumbrella uses dynamic acoustics to create different sounds – without the usual
instrumental upheaval and costly delays.
In its lowest position the Drumbrella surrounded by baffles creates a tight sound, then by
inching it up you can totally change the character of the recording until you get the
openness and ‘room’ sound you desire.

Having spent years in a studio we know there can be costly delays when reconfiguring
instruments – we’ve done everything we can to make this studio as time efficient and fun as
