capturing the heart of peformance
Porcupine Recording Studio was established in the early 1960's.
Known affectionately as 'Porcupine' we have a long history helping musicians record in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Setup by musician/arranger/producer Ted Taylor, it's been run by his son Nick since Ted died in 1992.
We have a Steinway 'A' Grand Piano manufactured in Hamburg in 1904.

You've really got us a 'sound' - and you've absolutely understood the 'spirit' of it all from the moment we walked into the studio…

Nick (owner & engineer) provides a wonderful service; he’s very welcoming, has great equipment, sets up efficiently, knows exactly what to do and uses good musical intuition. He works hard to make the customer happy in the mastering process (and I was fussy…), super grand piano, very reasonably priced, and also has some lovely coffee. Overall a great experience, and I’ll certainly be going back there again.
