Monnow Valley Residential Recording Studio

"I’ve spent 20 years rescuing gear from studios forced to shut their doors, including Ocean Way Recording and Sound City. Monnow Valley is one of the best sounding live rooms I’ve ever worked in, and the people and setting are amazing. I couldn’t be happier with where the equipment has ended up."
