Dawg Pound Studios is a 300 square foot studio located in Hanson, MA. Sponsored by Auralex, PreSonus & MXL, the studio was built from scratch to the exact specs of producer John Taglieri with the help of an acoustic engineer. The room was tuned with the help of Auralex who designed the acoustical treatment. With a 20'x10' live room and a 10'x10' control room, the sound quality is top notch.


The studio has produced over 17 CDs, including a Top 30 & a Top 75 Billboard New Artist Album Charting CD, two Top 10 releases on and a Number One single on, a Top Seller on iTunes as well as an 'EP Of The Year' winner. 


The studio has also done commerical voice over work for clients such as the NJ State Fair.


With a great space, great acoustics, a talented engineer/producer, a great mix of new & vintage gear and more, Dawg Pound Studios is a great choice for your next Project.
