Best Over-The-Radar Recording Studio: Atomic Audio

Best Over-The-Radar Recording Studio

Musicians know that hours spent in the studio playing the same songs over and over can be both mind-numbing and expensive. Tampa’s Atomic Audio makes the recording process as painless as possible by offering a topnotch studio environment (and practice spaces) at reasonable prices. It helps that owner/sound-engineer Mark Nikolich is great at what he does and is one of the nicest guys around. Slews of bands have recorded — and return to record — at Atomic; more than 150 bands can’t be wrong.
