Our large studio is roughly 25'x25' and includes a small stage, music equipment, karaoke set up using our projector system, and some seating. We also have a small lounge next to the room which is public space. The space is located within a collection of 15 fully backlined music studios which are rented hourly. The hallways and public areas are shared with our other clients. We have a front desk with an attendant who is on-site and available for help with check-in and with any technical problems. We also have music equipment available for loan, rent, or sale if you have unanticipated needs for gear. The music equipment includes: -12-channel Soundcraft Mixing Board -2.2 QSC Active PA System -3 vocal microphones (extras available for $3 rental) -5-piece Pearl Crystal Beat Drum Set -2x Bad Cat Boutique Guitar Amplifier -Aguilar bass amp head w/ 5-speaker cabinet -Roland RD-800 Weighted Keyboard/Synth
Our space is used daily by hundreds of local rock and roll musicians so we are pretty relaxed. We ask that all smoking be kept outside and that all alcoholic beverages are kept within the music studio and out of all public areas. The music equipment in our studios is treasured by our community. It is a major expense to maintain, so we ask that all the gear be respected at all times. Any damage caused by negligence or misuse will be billed to the renting party. If there is equipment that will be unused during the event, we ask that you let the front desk attendant know and they will move it from the studio for safe-keeping. We allow outside food, beverages, and pets as long as they are cleaned up by the responsible parties. Any extra equipment that the guest uses must be returned to the front desk at the end of the event.
Love the staff and the space. There is never a dull moment at MCR and they come through for us every time. Tanner and Co. always go out of their way to ensure a great experience is had by all. It’s really difficult to find such fun and attentive staff anywhere. They truly go out of their way for you and create a warm, family atmosphere that kind of reminds you of being home. There’s a reason I recommend MCR to everyone I meet. Keep up the great work and I look forward to our next experience at MCR. Thanks for the great time!!!
I had my birthday party here and had the ABSOLUTE BEST TIME!! The staff, especially Tanner, was so nice and helpful. My friends loved it too. Cool decor/ambience and great sound system. This is a really unique space and I commend their vision of building a collaborative, affordable space for music in SF.
