“My band spent two days at Tsunami – I’ve had the privilege of spending time in great studios in Auckland and Melbourne, over the past 30 odd years. Tsunami was a real surprise in the middle of nowhere – it is jam packed with wonderful gear from the amazing desk, right through to an impressive range of mic’s. David is obviously very experienced and relaxed, whilst Adele is just a joy. I would thoroughly recommend the studio, its accommodation and the overall experience to any musicians.” – Roy Brown – ‘The Gov’ – The Cabana – Napier

“Tsunami Sound in Levin did a fantastic job for my band. We are indeed privileged to have had Dave and Adele work on our songs with us for a great result. Highly recommend you seriously consider them before you pay for expensive options elsewhere.” Steve Starke – Days of Twelve – Auckland

“Couldn’t find a better environment to create music. A peaceful rural setting with a spacious fully kitted out pro studio and the best of all, the Dave/Adele team makes you feel at home while complimenting and assisting the project to the highest level. A great time here and would highly recommend this to all artists looking to produce a high-end musical product.” Cian McCovern – New Plymouth

“We recorded a couple of demo tracks with Adele and David over a weekend. They were fantastic and we had such a good time. We didn’t have much experience with recording, but they made us feel totally at ease and were very patient and positive. They have a great set up with recording gear in an amazing studio. It was very professional and comfortable. David is a great session musician as well as recording engineer, and we found him to be super versatile, professional and approachable, and he quickly understood the style we were trying to achieve. He also makes the best bread! Adele is a great communicator. From the initial email til post production, she was prompt, organised and made us feel relaxed and happy. Its pretty hard not to feel inspired there. We had a great weekend, came out with a great product which we are really proud of.” The Bollands – Auckland (link to Bandcamp)

“We recorded at Tsuami on two occasions and in that time we have found Adele and Dynamo Dave to be both professional and inspiring in the recording of our second album. The atmosphere with living in faciities made the entire experience fantastic. We would recommend the studio to any musicians wanting to work along side a creative, enthusiastic and talented team.” Blues Buffet – Whanganui

“Recording at Tsunami Sound Studio was awesome, great professionalism, knowledge, help and good times. It wasn’t just a trip to the studio. It was an amazing experience and we all had a blast. Working with Dave, Adele and a huge amount of mixing desks, mic’s, and flashing lights was something I would recommend to any band, no matter what genre of music. We were made to feel so welcome we didn’t want to leave. There is no place in the world like Tsunami Sound Studio.” Horusset – Napier

“I recorded two albums at Tsunami. David was also my session musician – keys, drums, and bass and is incredibly talented and sensitive in interpreting a song. For me it was like he took the story of my life and illustrated it with colourful glossy pictures. His passion for what he does is so evident as well as being incredibly skillful. What an awesome experience David and Adele made it for all of us involved. It was fantastic having accommodation right there and shared lunch. Adele is a great cook, hostess and administrator as well helping in the studio and the many other hats she wears to help make Tsunami Sound a place where you can totally relax and enjoy the process. I would unreservedly recommend them to anyone looking at recording.” Jo Lane – Hawera

“What an awesome day we had recording. Lovely, lovely people. David is an awesomely talented musician and super professional sound engineer – Adele’s attention to detail and her wizardry on the desk made it an absolute pleasure recording.” Awesome lunch – beautiful bread.” Swamp Dixie – Otaki

“Had the pleasure of recording here for 5 days and it was great – songs sound awesome and the hospitality was exceptional. What more could you want from a recording studio.” Simon Rofe

“We had a amazing time over 3 days at Tsunami Sound Studio. A professional, relaxed attitude, flexibility, good humour, animals, and fantastic hospitality. Thanks so much Dave and Adele – you made us a very happy band.” Kashmir Jackson
