Rhythm - - INTERVIEW -

Pete Ray Big­gin’s ex­clu­sive guest lessons for Rhythm were filmed with the help of the Ru­bix drum stu­dio, Lon­don, with the videos shot both at Pete’s own stu­dio and at the Ru­bix fa­cil­ity it­self. The Ru­bix drum stu­dio was the brain­child of founder Bence Bolygo, him­self a pro­fes­sional jazz drum­mer, who ex­plains to Rhythm that he saw many short­com­ings in the record­ing of drums in typ­i­cal generic record­ing stu­dios. “There are many is­sues, which there is no space to cover here, but room acous­tics and time wasted set­ting up the kit was a reg­u­lar prob­lem that kept pop­ping up,” he says. “The hours spent set­ting up the kit eat­ing into ex­pen­sive record­ing time.” Bence re­veals that at Ru­bix, the acous­tics of the live room were de­signed specif­i­cally for the sole pur­pose of record­ing drums, “by giv­ing the most nat­u­ral, clean­est-sound­ing record­ings for per­cus­sion, fur­ther helped with the lat­est Fo­cus­rite Red­net record­ing tech­nol­ogy and many per­mu­ta­tions of the high­est au­dio qual­ity mi­cro­phones”.

Ru­bix also boasts one of the big­gest col­lec­tions of pris­tine per­cus­sion in­stru­ments, rang­ing from the 1930s to present day, giv­ing the drum­mer the ul­ti­mate palette to cre­ate any sound scape they so de­sire. “The drum­mer’s choice of kit is set up be­fore the record­ing ses­sion,” says Bence, “so within 15 min­utes of walk­ing in, you can be record­ing.”

The busi­ness has ex­panded, and now hosts a re­tail fa­cil­ity sell­ing all per­cus­sion re­lated equip­ment, the aim of the shop be­ing “to serve the drum­ming com­mu­nity with un­beat­able prices and a very per­sonal ser­vice”. On top of all these ser­vices that Ru­bix of­fers to the in­dus­try, are ed­u­ca­tion, con­sul­tancy and book­ing and man­age­ment ser­vices.

Says Bence, “With ever chal­leng­ing global eco­nomic prob­lems, Ru­bix has cre­ated an eco sys­tem for the drum­ming com­mu­nity and con­tin­ues to push bound­aries in all ar­eas of the in­dus­try. Join our com­mu­nity and let Ru­bix help you on your jour­ney!”
