The Headliner team has been busy putting together a unique recording space above an ancient inn in the heart of St. Albans which dates back to 1420 – possibly the oldest building to house a professional recording studio. Headliner contributor Paul Watson says, “The guys at GIK Acoustics helped us transform what was an empty, reflective space, into a great sounding room.” READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE.

Hifi Pig Magazine‘s aim is to review and report on the best in hifi. Stuart and Linette Smith installed our bass traps, acoustic panels and diffusors and presented GIK “an OUTSTANDING PRODUCT Award.” Stuart concludes, “… all I can say is you need to hear what these relatively inexpensive panels can do. Anyone who is not convinced is either fooling themselves for whatever reason or needs to take themselves to the ear-doctor without passing go and without collecting their £200.”
We provided a “Tip Jar” article to Music Connection Magazine called “HOW TO MAKE A RECORDING/MIXING STUDIO SOUND LIKE A MILLION DOLLAR ROOM.” Starting with positioning & setup and then examining where to place room treatments, there is no better impact on the sound in your space than proper acoustic treatment.
Rick LaFaver reviewed our 4A Alpha Panels for EnjoyTheMusic.com calling them, “One of the best values to treating any good listening room.”

MusicTech Magazine December 2015 feature Create Your Own Pro Studio Part II
We worked with Alex Holmes to set up and treat his new studio using GIK Acoustics 244 Bass Traps, Monster Bass Traps, and Soffit Bass Traps. Alex says, “… the sonic results were dramatic. My partner, who is always complaining that he can’t feel the bass, was especially happy, as it now felt like the sub-frequencies has shifted focus from the room’s extremities to its centre.”
