Muziekstudio Herengracht is a high-spec soundproof space in the lively heart of Amsterdam, on the first floor of a classic canal house with a view over the elegant Herengracht, close to the famous ‘Nine Streets’ district.

The studio has its own entrance, ante-room (with a professional Jura coffee machine and fridge) and toilet. The main doors can be opened remotely using an entry phone.

The sound studio has a wonderful, acoustic Bechstein concert grand piano which can be repositioned to suit the occasion. The professional lighting and sound equipment, high-quality Dolby Surround system and acoustic panels offer a range of options for performances and sound and/or film recordings. A separate room can be made available for performers.
The studio can accommodate an audience of about 25 people for concerts.
The space is also regularly used for commercial events, including presentations, product launches, strategy discussions, meetings and brainstorming sessions. Discretion is assured thanks to the studio’s separate entrance and soundproofing. A separate room can be made available for break-out sessions.
Desks and chairs are available for different layouts (presentation, round-table, classroom, etc.) and numbers of attendees. The space is also equipped with flip charts, Dolby Atmos sound equipment and a large built-in projection screen with a 4K Ultra-HD projector that would not be out of place in a small cinema.
In addition to its location and soundproofing, the space offers a range of options for recordings, including the Bechstein concert grand piano and AKG, Neuman and Line One microphones with both cable and WiFi connection to an iPad-controlled Presonus mixer.
The ante-room can serve as a control room with connections and cabling to the studio. In most cases, users connect their recording computers and handle the recording technology themselves but as an extra option we can handle the entire technical side.
The space can be set up using the furniture available on site but other equipment can be hired in.
The ante-room has a professional Jura coffee machine and a wide selection of teas. We work with selected partners and can also offer a wide range of snacks and drinks right through to full catering. With musical accompaniment if you wish! On request, your event can be combined with a canal cruise, guided tour or perhaps a cookery workshop and/or private dining provided by our neighbours: Cuisine Française.
