We Will Get You The Sound You've Been Dreaming Of!

"I was especially impressed with the drum sound I was able to get in your live room. Many rooms that you think would sound good, end up sounding boomy and/or trashy. The room sound I was able to capture was very balanced and had great decay. I noticed the cymbals were very smooth, not harsh as can be the case in some bigger rooms." Sean Beresford ~ Producer, Engineer ~ Third Eye Blind, Vanessa Carlton

"I have had the opportunity to record in practically every major studio in The Bay Area. None of them compare to Laughing Tiger's combination of spacious, great sounding rooms and high end gear. You just can't get killer drum or guitar tones in those rinky dink home studios and the good news is that at Laughing Tiger, you won't spend a fortune to get them." Mighty Mike Schermer ~ Recording Artist ~ Blues Guitarist Extraordinaire
