"A studio with a big heart a big sound a jacuzzi a pool and a bar all for a price that will shame you." Kris Jenkins (Super Furry Animals, Cate le Bon, The Peth, Truckers of Husk H Hawkline).

"StiwdioUn can only be described as a gold nugget lodged into the side of a mountain! The remote setting is both stunning and inspiring and if that doesn't appeal then the studio itself surely will. Featuring the best of both software and analogue Worlds, you have the choice over your sound and an array of microphones, guitars, keyboards and other instruments to work with. Owner and Engineer Sam Durrant works tirelessly to help you create the songs you always knew you had and takes the time to explain his set ups and how he came to discover them. With many other unique features built by Sam himself (including an outdoor swimming pool, bar and bunk house) the whole studio stands as testament to a work of love. I can't think of a better environment for a recording artist to be in. Highly recommended." Ali Price (Red Nature)

"StiwdioUn provided us with the best studio recording experience we've ever had. We are always happy with the finished product and music. The recording studio has a great atmosphere, and we've always enjoyed ourselves, fun whilst benefiting from their professionalism. The combination of the available gear alongside Sam's expertise with how to get the best sound, is brilliant. These are some of the reasons we have returned to StiwdioUn time and time again. And, there are chickens." Rhys Martin (Plant Duw)
