Ranscombe Hall of Fame

Welcome to the Ranscombe Hall of Fame where we will feature recordings, and an archive of our alumni. The list below contains links to a selection of the artists and bands who have recorded at Ranscombe Studios over the years and their reviews of the Studio and Jim’s expertise.

If you have recorded at Ranscombe and are not on this list and would like to be added please contact us. If you are on the list and would like to edit the content on your artist page please contact us. We hope to encourage as many of our artists and friends as possible to contribute to this section and share their experience of recording at Ranscombe.
