Jay Britton – Voice Actor
Jay is a UK based voice actor who works with clients all over the world on corporate, commercial and videogame voiceovers. As such he needed a space suitable for recording in 24 /7 without interruptions from external noise. EQ Acoustics constructed Jay a soundproofed garden recording studio from the ground up!
“Working with EQ Acoustics was an absolute pleasure. Knowledgeable, professional and passionate I am extremely pleased with the result. I had to schedule a session with the US yesterday and the knowledge I could do it anytime without interruption was invaluable! Quite often I’ve been recording in the studio only to walk to an entire cacophony of sound I was oblivious too, fantastic!”

Adrian Bushby, British Recording Engineer and Producer
With an impressive portfolio including Muse’s ‘The Resistance’ and The Foo Fighters’ ‘Echoes, Silence, Patience, Grace’, Adrian relies on his studio to deliver consistency. EQ furnished Adrian’s control room with Spectrum Studio acoustic panels and bass traps to bring his monitoring up to standard. More photos coming soon.
“Just a note to say thanks for everything you guys have done in my studio. Mixes seem to come together quicker since the Spectrum treatment went in and the low end is far more transparent. Great service throughout and it even looks cool! I’ll recommend you in the future.”

Djanogly City Academy, Nottingham
EQ Acoustics have undertaken several projects at Djanogly City Academy. We were initially called in to deal with excessive noise levels in the main canteen at their Gregory Boulevard site. Large fabric faced acoustic wall panels and acoustic foam ceiling baffles have calmed the noise down considerably making it a far more relaxing environment for staff and pupils alike. The academy’s excellent choice of colours has resulted in stunning visual effect in addition to the acoustic benefits. The staff were so pleased that we have recently completed similar works at their other campus. More photos coming soon…
Thatcham Automotive Academy
Thatcham are the UK’s leading vehicle safety research organisation. In addition to training thousands of engineers to repair crashed-damaged vehicles, Thatcham’s research accounts for 70% of the data insurance companies use to determine a car’s insurance group. As a key player in the world vehicle safety forum, their facilities must be first class.
EQ Acoustics were commissioned to provide three large sound proof workshops to accommodate training sessions involving noisy tools and machinery. Each workshop features wide access industrial doors, powerful air extraction and high levels of sound absorption and reduction resulting in an environment that is safe and comfortable to work in.
The Judd School, Tonbridge
The Judd School employed EQ Acoustics to advise on converting a victorian house into a viable music building and recording studio. After a detailed consultation process, a report was provided to bring the facility into line with BB93 guidelines and to allow the school to modernise the facility within their budget. Extensive construction and conversion work followed.
“EQ Acoustics were professional, methodical and efficient at all points of the process and without their consultative input into the design of the building we would not have been able to use the spaces successfully. Indeed this conversion was to extend the already generous music accommodation (which was purpose built in 1995) and the conversion has better acoustic properties and sound isolation than the purpose built block.”
A number of EQ Acoustics products were used in the conversion including Spectrum absorbers, chosen for their durability and fire rating. We also provided a custom made drum riser to reduce impact noise from an electronic drum kit.
