Welcome to Beatbox

The local music community has been hit particularly hard by the devastating earthquakes over the last two years with live performance venues, clubs and pubs destroyed, equipment and gear trapped inside condemned buildings, recording studios and rehearsal spaces demolished.

Since the September 2010 and February & June 2011 quakes many of central city upper floor spaces and storage units that musicians used to perfect and hone their craft have been lost. An important voice and vital form of expression, part of what makes Christchurch unique, is missing.

Prior to September 2010 there has always been demand for a dedicated band rehearsal space for local and touring artists and over 95% of Christchurch’s music community support the creation of a multi-room rehearsal facility and music community hub (Online Musician’s Survey undertaken by CHART, Nov/Dec 2011).

FAQ

Question & Answer: 

How many to a studio?

We have 3 studios. The two 5m x 5m rooms can comfortably accommodate 5 people. The larger 8m x 5m studio is getting cosy with more than 8.

Refund?

At this stage we don't ask for a deposit to secure the booking so there is no refund. But, if you cancel on us without any notice, we still want our money so we can give it to our staff who gave up some time to look after you. Fair enough?

How much notice do I need to give to get a booking? Can I just roll up?

We would like at least 24 hrs notice to confirm bookings. The earlier the better. It's first in first served so if you want to take a chance, just roll up.

How do I pay?

We like cash. Or directly into our bank account on line (we are also working on getting the EftPos too). We charge $35 per hour for the two 5m x 5m x 6m studios and $45 for the larger 8m x 5m x 6m studio.

What are your hours?

10am to 10pm, 7 days a week.

What’s the min/max time I can book?

Minimum booking is 1 hour. All additional time in the studio is negotiable.

Can I have the same time every week, multiple bookings?

We would love to lock in a regular slot for you. We try to accommodate everyone's first preference but have to be a bit flexible at times. And if Led Zeppelin come to town and want your allocated time...you will get bumped.

Can I come and check it out?

We would love you to come and check out the place. Email info@beatbox.nz to set up a time.

Do I have to bring my own gear?

We have drum kits, bass amps, guitar amps, mics, p.a's (the full list is below). So you will need guitars and any other instrument or specialist gear you noodle about on. It's first in first served so you need to tell us what you require and we'll do the best to have it ready for you when you turn up

Can I drink beer / wine and eat Indian?

Never inside the studio. And take your rubbish away with you thanks.

Do you hire the whole lot out to groups?

Yes we are able to hire the entire space to groups for all sorts of events, gigs and celebrations

How loud can we practise?

You can turn your own amps up to 11, or until your ears bleed. The rooms are soundproofed. But please respect our gear. If you break it, you pay for it.

Where can I park?

Parking in central city ChCh is a major hassle during the day, but you can drop gear off outside and go find a longer term park. After about 5pm there are more options around Madras and St Asaph st.

Where are the bathrooms?

We have 3 beautiful port-a-loos right outside for your convenience. There will be a proper, permanent toilet block soon.

Do you need volunteers?

We are always keen to hear from enthusiastic, energetic, creative and reliable people who are really keen to help us.

Is there any sound recording equipment?

We don't own any specific recording kit, but you are welcome to bring in your own special gear and hook up to the p.a in the studio

What music equipment do you have there?

6 x EV ZLX112P speakers
3 x Yamaha mixers
4 x H&H VRM112a monitors
2 x Tama drum kitss
2 x Hiwatt G112r guitar amps
2 x Ibanez Promethean bass amps
