There are easy links to the University of Southern California, only 10 minutes from Pirate's West Adams studios.

What sort of cleaning are you doing?

Your safety and wellbeing is our highest priority – we wouldn’t do anything to put this at risk. All studios are cleaned and sanitised as often as possible, but it’s still crucial for you to wipe down and sanitise the kit at the beginning and end of each session. In the UK, DE and IE we provide antibacterial spray and paper towels at every site, and in the US we provide antibacterial wipes.

How do I book a session?

Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.

TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and set-up/pack-down anything you’ve brought along. 

How big are the studios?

These measurements are for guidelines only. Studios can vary by location and type of build. Sizes are approximate.

What is verification and how does it work?

Being verified unlocks extra features at Pirate, like Refer-a-Friend credits. You also need to have your identity verified before you book one of our DJ or recording studios, so it’s a worthwhile investment! Don’t worry, the process only takes two minutes.

TIP: Use your mobile, it's easier to get a clear shot of your face/document.

I have an issue with my certificate code!

Please use WhatsApp, Live Chat, or email us and our support team will help you out. They're on hand 24/7 and will get it sorted.

What if something breaks or I need a spare?

Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault.  You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios if needed.

Something missing from the room or you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website or on WhatsApp. We will be more than happy to help.

Are food and drinks available at the studios?

A handful of locations do have vending machines but we suggest you bring your own food and drinks with you. Most Pirate sites are near local shops for convenience, and several sites have a kettle and microwave. Check out our support hub or the location page for your Pirate studio for further details.
