Live Room/ISO Booth

The live room at Ultimate Studios, inc

The large 600 sq ft live room sounds fantastic. It features a rail system around the entire room that allows for complete sonic customization by moving absorbers, RPG Diffusors, and BIG 8' wood polyfusors anywhere you need to create just the right sound.

A great room also needs great gear and we've got you covered! For drums we are loaded with the classic sounds of Gretsch and Ludwig as well as Pearl and Yamaha! With a total of 5 drum kits and 14 snares we'll help you find your perfect sound!

We don't stop at drums though....For guitar and bass we have amps from Marshall, Fender, Laney, Ampeg, and Mark Bass. We also have a Hammond M3 organ that has been modded to run through any of these great amps. Let's just say we love chasing the perfect tones!
