Tom Peters - Trapdoor Studios

 

 

 

Tom Peters has moved in to his new recording studio up in Liverpool and we took a tour around and had a demonstration of Tom's guitar / pedal setup for recording.

 

In this video you get to see Trap Door Studios with a short tour before moving on to the guitar recording section showing the great selection of pedals with Tom plugging in and showing how each sounds!

 

The full, un-edited studio tour, with lot's of background about the reason the studio came in to being, is in the second section (about 10 mins in) - we know that some people want a brief studio tour but some want *all* of the information so please let us know what you think! A very big thanks to Russ Cottier for his tour - check out the link at the end of the video to his channel and thank you to Tom for giving up the time to show us around - a lovely studio and well worth dropping by to visit :-)
