Hangar Studios Cleaning Deposit
Hi, and thanks for booking time at the Hangar!
This page further explains your cleaning deposit of $100.
We're hoping that you'll leave the studio the way you found it so we can refund your entire deposit and continue to keep our rates as low as possible. Here's what you need to do:
Put things back where you found them! If you need to move things around, remember where they are and put them back. Pay attention to where you get things like microphones, headphones and handheld percussion and put them back where you found them.
- Normalize the gear you use. This means gain knobs and faders are down. EQ's are off and EQ gain pots are at zero. Most importantly, phantom power is OFF!!! Turn off the gear and the power bar behind the consoles.
- Coil up mic cables and speaker cables cleanly. Do not use the 'wrap around your elbow' method. Use the over and under hand coiled method. On the mic cables, wrap the ends around the coil once or twice and connect the two XLR connectors. Do not tie the cables in a knot. The next person using the studio should be able to use the cables you coiled without them tangling up with each other. Be extra careful to put the 5 and 7 pin XLR tube mic cables back on the correct hook in the control room. Since they look just like a 3 pin XLR it's very hard to find them once they're mixed in with the rest of the mic cables!
- Put your garbage in a garbage can.
- Clean and wash any kitchen dishes you used.
If we have to do the above things after your session, we will charge you $50 an hour to do so. If you're not sure where something goes, leave it out. If you just leave one or two things out we can put them away for you and if it only takes a minute or two you won't be charged. If we have to go through the entire studio to find the stuff you didn't put away in the right place and put it back, that will take longer than us just putting it away in the first place.
