'The best business investment I've made!' - Voice Actor and Audiobook Narrator Gabrielle Baker loves her Studiobricks booth

Successful British Voice Actor Gabrielle Baker invested in a VO edition Studiobricks booth a couple of years ago and describes it as ‘the best business investment I’ve made!’  Gabrielle described the booth as ‘a fantastic product’, which has had a real impact on the amount of work she can produce: ‘The quality of the audio I record has meant that my productivity has increased ten fold and I have full confidence that live sessions with clients will give them the professional quality they require’.

A highly respected and experienced British Voice Actor with her own studio at her home in Kent, UK, Gabrielle works in all genres of voice over and narration with clients around the world.  Gabrielle was a finalist for a Voice Arts Award in 2016 in Los Angeles and has gone on to be a best-selling audiobook narrator.

Gabrielle recently moved house, and was able to take the Studiobricks booth with her to her new home.  Gabrielle reports: ‘The booth is so well designed and easy to build that during my recent studio move my husband and I were able to deconstruct and reconstruct the booth seamlessly and without any damage.  This means that investing in a VO Edition booth is an investment for life, once purchased it’s yours forever’.

Gabrielle adds: ‘The customer service from Black Cat Music was fantastic.  By chance they were close to me so I was able to visit their premises and see, touch and test a vocal booth.  The order was managed by Black Cat Music from start to finish and at all times communication was great.  I was kept fully up to date with the delivery and also a follow-up to make sure I was happy with my new vocal booth. 

Gabrielle concludes: ‘I cannot recommend both the VO Edition Studiobricks booth and Black Cat Music enough.  A great product and fantastic customer service.  What more could I ask for?’

New acoustic ceiling panels at London South Bank Edric Hall Theatre

New acoustic ceiling panels at London South Bank Edric Hall Theatre

Here are the first ‘hot-off-the-press’ pictures of the acoustic panels which we installed at London South Bank University’s Edric Hall Theatre this week – we are all delighted with the results!

London South Bank University’s Edric Theatre is a dedicated theatre and rehearsal space for drama, performance and technical theatre students. With its reconfigurable 90-seat auditorium, seven studio theatres, rehearsal spaces and backstage facilities, the Edric Theatre is a wonderful space for rehearsals and performances – both for students, and for commercial theatre companies.

The theatre had recognized a need to improve the acoustics in the much-loved Edric Hall, so Black Cat Music & Acoustics was brought in to make the improvements.

The team installed elegant, curved Acoustic GRG acoustic panels – and the result is a beautiful-looking ceiling providing dramatically enhanced hall acoustics.

The whole team is really pleased with the new look and feel of the hall and we wish London South Bank University many successful rehearsals and performances for years to come.
