Quotes & Custom Packages

We are more than happy to work out custom packages for specific projects, which gives us the chance to adjust the ongoing hourly rate towards your budget. The best way to obtain a quote is to send us an email with a short description of your goals, predicted outcome, any web links to previous recordings, a run down on who is in the band, and of course a basic idea of the type of budget you would like to stick to. We can also add extras to your package such as: album artwork design, music video clip, cd printing and duplication services, even digital distribution!
