Private rooms are unequipped studios rented to one group at a time, where you can leave your gear set up 24/7. These studios feature 12' ceiling, 20-amp electric service and 12 grounded outlets per room. Most rooms are 18'x18', but occassionally something smaller or larger is available. Get private keyed access to a security-conscious facility dedicated for musicians.  No lease needed but you can choose one for a rate reduction:

One-year lease = $275/month, 6-month lease = $300/month, or $350 for no lease.

A security deposit equal to one month rent is required to reserve a private room, with first month due in advance on move-in. The deposit is refundable when you return the keys after giving 30-days notice prior to vacating the room.  Please note that failure to give 30-days notice or complete term will result in forfeit of the deposit.

We have onsite storage lockups, rental gear for session use, a full bar serving hot and cold drinks and snacks, and a convenience shop for incidentals like strings, sticks and batteries.
