Sound Inc has a 48 hour cancellation policy in place. If you need to cancel, shorten or change the
date of your booking, your will need to give at least 48 hours notice before the beginning of your
booking. Upon booking a Sound Inc rehearsal, it is expected that you are aware of, and agree to, our cancellation charges.

The charges are as so:

Between 48 and 12 hours notice:
Half of your rehearsal fee will be returned to you

Less than 12 hours notice:
None of your rehearsal fee will be returned to you

We hope that our customers understand that this is a necessary policy designed to keep Sound Inc here as a service to the musicians in the North East.

Please also note that any booked or paid for rehearsal time that is cut short on the day or unattended by a client is still time that we could have given to other clients. In the event of either of these situations happening, the client who booked will not be entitled to any degree of refund or rearrangement.

Sound Inc can be extremely busy during peak times. We ask anyone using our rehearsal facilities to ensure that they are beginning their pack down at least 5 minutes before the end of their rehearsal.
When using our facilities, you should have all your equipment out of your studio by the end of the last hour of your booking.

We accept Stripe and payment by debit card on our website through a fully secure payment portal. On site we accept cash, debit card, apple pay, android pay and direct paypal transfer.

There is no reduction in studio fees for bringing your own equipment, but you are more than welcome to use your equipment at our studio as long as the power supplies and units themselves have been PAT tested. You may save yourself from spending extra on creature comforts (e.g. by bringing your own cymbals), but you will not benefit from any studio rate discount by bringing additional equipment
