Latest Trevor Horn video interview at SARM Studios

Hook End underwent massive refurbishment just a few years ago with the control room and studio being tastefully re-decorated and features one of the UK's largest SSL console - 96 channel J Series frame with 80 modules fitted.   Watch a video pan around the room.

 

There's nothing missing in the racks and the studio's got stacks of analogue and digital multi-tracks.  But that's enough about gadgets, what makes the studio special to work in is the huge amount of space, both the control room and studio areas are vast.

If space is what you want, this place has got it.  If you are in to nature,  the huge grounds feature one of the largest monkey puzzle trees in the UK and the gardens are right out of a feature film

Best of all, the accommodation is simply superb.  Take your choice from a wide range of original rooms, some designed by Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd- a previous owner).  Our favorite is the World War II vibe room, no doubt influenced by Roger Waters.  There are numerous relaxation rooms where the mega star can entertain in suitable style.

 

The food is excellent and the staff are top rate.   All in all, you couldn't hire a decent top hotel suite in London for the same money - and you get one of the world's top studios thrown in too.  We're blown away and you will be too!

 

Special thanks to Trevor Horn for giving up his time to talk about Hook End.
