The Hub Sound Studios is now CLOSED but fear not, it has been replaced by Rhinocorn Studios.

From November 2010 to December 2016, the Hub was the the place for rehearsals and recordings for bands and musicians and was the largest professional rehearsal studio in Cambridge.

See below for a farewell from Bobby, Chris and the team.

Please visit www.rhinocorn.co.uk for ongoing rehearsal bookings.


Thanks and Goodbye

Well that’s it! The Hub is now closed.

A new rehearsal studio is moving in in its place and Chris and Bobby are happy to welcome Mike and Heloise of Rhinocorn Studios to the stage.

They will be opening up again in the New Year after giving the place a bit of a facelift.

Their website is up and live and taking booking enquiries now – so head over to www.rhinocorn.co.uk to have a look.

Chris Pepper is moving on to a new purpose built recording studio in Leighton Bromswold, near Huntingdon. Saltwell Studio will be opening in Spring 2017. In the meantime, for any recording enquiries, contact saltwellstudio@gmail.com and keep your eyes open for the new website.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for custom over the last 7 years and hope you will continue to support Mike and Heloise as they get to know you all. It has been a genuine pleasure meeting you all and hearing you play on a regular basis.

Thanks again,
Chris and Bobby

Chris Pepper

Co-Founder / Engineer / Producer / Musician

Chris set the studio up alongside Bobby Ford in November 2010. Since then he has produced, engineered and played on many releases that have received local and national airplay and success. Graduating from The ACM in Guildford in 2007 (where he specialised in drum performance) Chris is also often called upon to record drums, percussion, bass, additional guitars and other quirky keyboards and instruments at his disposal (including the Omni-Chord, one of his faves).

Graduating from King's College London with a degree in Music in 2009, Bobby worked in a number of small companies within marketing and administration roles as well as some project management. When Chris approached him, in early 2010, with the proposition of being involved in setting up a studio - he couldn't refuse! In that time he has been a bookkeeper, a photographer, a designer, a copy-writer, a keyboard player, a database administrator, a recruitment consultant, a spy and a pilot. (Not all at the studio/in real-life.)
