Why You Should Record at Frogville Studios
Frogville is right up here at 7000 feet above sea level nestled in the foothills of the Rockies in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.
Since 2003 Frogville has been helping artists record original music, we have years and 100’s of projects under our belt.
Upstairs Bunkhouse available for touring bands’ recording sessions.
Frogville has an excellent and growing microphone closet: Neumann, Sennheiser, AKG, Coles, Sony, RCA…
We have helpful, friendly musician engineers who are highly skilled and knowledgeable.
Songwriters and musicians often ask us too put together a band for them or find extra instrumentalists to spice up their tune, we know every musician within a hundred miles and can find you a horn section or a violin or cello or a bagpipe or whatever… we can find them for you.
Santa Fe has unique creative energy as does the hill at Frogville studios at 7000 feet above sea level and in the high arid desert surrounded by three mountain ranges at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Get out of your comfort zone and into ours. 3 acres private land with 360 degree views.
The Big Room at Frogville is unique, roughly 26 x 36 with a 17 foot ceiling. Adobe earth walls and the wooden viga beams of ponderosa pine that make the ceiling give us a unique sound. Everything sounds great in there, horns, strings, full bands even a whole Mariachi or a seven member marimba band… anything.
Tons of goodies here, from the all analog front end of classics to the Hammond C3 that came from Chuck Berry’s Memphis studio to the classic 1957 German EMT 140 plate reverb that was at RCA/NYC until 1971 when it moved to the west coast to Wally Heider, among our 40 vintage tube amps we have a Marshall Plexie super bass 100 (loved by Duane Allman and Jimi Hendrix), a brown face Princeton and a plethora of rare and textured tones are available for that second guitar part or whatever.
