Rehearsal studios Melbourne Rehearsal Studios Melbourne – Smokestack Studios is only 1 hour from Melbourne, but worlds away when it comes to value-for-money, sound, quality of equipment, comfort and atmosphere. Our rehearsal room features state-of-the-art acoustic treatments for superior live sound, plus great inclusions you won’t find in other rehearsal venues. Our customers love the Smokestack Studios vibe:

I can honestly say that Smokestack Studios is one of the most satisfying places at which I have had the pleasure of rehearsing. Think of all those cold, smelly, soul-less run down converted factory rooms you’ve played in; where the equipment is battered, old and stinks and the P.A. absolutely sucks big time…Smokestack is the polar opposite! Warm, clean, fresh & new with quality equipment and wonderful, caring & knowledgable people running the place.

Pete, Vocalist
