    What to Expect
    The guided tour starts at the bottom of the hour in the basement of the iconic studio with an overview of the albums recorded there, two short videos and a some rock and roll surprises! Next is the "listening porch" and how it contributes to the success of the recording studio. The tour then goes back inside to the main studio to see the control room, isolation booths, original furniture, instruments and, of course, music. For the musicians this is not a "hands off" studio tour. Give the drums a whirl, or play a bass guitar that was played by Swamper David Hood or Jimmy Johnson as well as the piano used in Kodachrome, Old Time Rock and Roll, and other mega hits. 
    The tour guides entertain questions as the tour progresses as well as taking questions at the end of the approximately 50 minute tour. The tour ends in the gift shop where merchandise available for purchase includes the original design T-shirt worn by Mick Jagger, Willie Nelson, Linda Rondstadt, Ronnie Van Zant, Keiffer Sutherland and numerous other celebrities.

    Fabulous - It's hard to overstate the impact this little, unassuming building has on a rock-n-roll fan. Being in the same room where so many musical greats from the 60s and 70s recorded was a moving experience. The guided tour's introduction begins in a lounge...More
