About Bear Bites Horse
Bear Bites Horse is a recording studio based in Haggerston, East London run by Wayne Adams. Wayne has played in plenty of noisy bands over the last 15 years, touring extensively and releasing lots of records over this time. Wayne opened the studio in 2013 and has worked with some of Europe's best underground Punk, Metal, Doom and Psych bands. When building the studio the idea was to create a space that felt familiar, comfortable and creative in the hope that when a band comes to the studio they immediately feel as though they can let rip and make a racket! Wayne has filled the studio with some of the choicest amps, brutal pedals, and most awesome microphones to capture any band that comes through. We also have basic kitchen facilities, toilets and off street parking. We are situated a 2 min walk from Haggerston Tube, a lovely park and plenty of pubs and places to eat!
We love loud things! We have a massive selection of awesome vintage and modern amps, drums, FX pedals and synths for you use when you are here at the studio. We have a load of great mics ranging from studio classics such as Neumanns, Shure, Sennheiser, to more unusual mics such as Line Audio small condensers. We love valves too, so naturally we love Thermionic Culture equipment, to balance that out we also have a couple of racks of Audient pre's, More recently we have acquired a pristine Alice 828 desk for ultra gritty duties!
