Studio 47

PLEASE NOTE: Studio 47 is currently under construction at our new headquarters in Burbank and will reopen at a date TBA.

Local 47 is the only AFM Local to own and support a full-service recording facility: Studio 47.

We can record anything from a soloist to a 35-piece orchestra, and has been booked for jingles, film and video soundtracks, cast albums, commercial recordings and demos. We're a one-stop production resource, offering final mixing, digital mastering and duplication at reasonable rates.

Given Studio 47’s low rates and the choice of recording contracts available through the AFM and Local 47, it is very cost effective for a musician to produce his or her own recording, a tremendous advantage in today’s highly competitive music industry.
