Tamale Studios is a studio within a home. Although you have full access to most areas Ali or Tom may walk through once in a while (unless a closed set is requested) Because of this please keep the music and sound to a reasonable level.

The studio is expected to be returned in the same shape it is found. There are disposable shoe protectors available at no extra charge. If the studio is left in a messy condition after your booking there will be a $25 cleaning fee applied.

Your rubbish is to leave with you - we can handle it for $10 a bag.
