Recording Studio image“A severe off-premises electrical disturbance made our main dub stage console take several hits to the main DSP tower, console surface, I/O systems and various power supplies within those sub-systems. The Recording Studio Insurance Program helped us out in a number of ways; first, they worked with us in an attempt to recover our Neve Capricorn because we didn’t want to replace our console at the time. After it was determined that the Neve wasn’t recoverable they helped us compare three other comparable console manufacturers to replace our Neve console and give the same functionality. Once we chose a console The Recording Studio Insurance Program wrote us a check, not only for the console and installation fees, but in time to secure a commitment for an HBO project. We have been up and running ever since.”

“After dealing with a semi-anonymous insurance agent for the past 30 years, meeting Joe was a refreshing experience. The rates were lower and the benefits and coverage were broader and very specific to this industry.”
– Walter Sear (Sear Sound)

“We have been using The Recording Studio Insurance Program for over 10 years and we have been very happy with the coverage and service. Joe Montarello loves music and he knows insurance. As a musician himself, he understands the unique needs of recording studios as well as those who work in the studio environment. He has been very responsive in providing custom tailored insurance solutions for short term necessities and has helped us implement a plan that meets our long term business needs as well. There is no other company who offer this kind of service anywhere else.”
– Kirk Imamura (Avatar Studios)
