Opened in 1993, Soundcheck is the largest rehearsal studio complex in the world under one roof and is recognized as the rehearsal venue of choice by many touring and recording entertainers.
Within the walls of this 126,000 square foot facility are 9 rehearsal studios, 19 industry offices, and one of the largest backline inventories in the Southeast. Cartage services are also available.
Soundcheck’s instrument rental department has become known for quality and reliability. In addition to tour backline, Soundcheck does the CMA Awards, the CMT Awards, the CMA Music Festival, as well as many festivals throughout the region.
Also offered at Soundcheck is equipment and set storage. Storage lockers range in size and are able to accommodate everything from a single musician’s inventory to an entire tour’s worth of equipment. Set cart storage is also available.
In 2008, the owners of Soundcheck, Ben & Katie Jumper, expanded the facility to include the “740” Building. This expansion added 5 additional rehearsal rooms, 50 storage lockers, and 4 industry offices. This additional building on the Soundcheck campus has continued to grow and gain popularity over the years.
Q: WILL YOU ACCEPT SHIPMENTS FOR US?
A: For storage clients, yes. However, we do not have labor to handle large shipments. We don’t mind putting one or two boxes or a rolling case in your locker, but it’s more, we suggest you contact Crew One to schedule a labor call. If you are a rehearsal client, please have items shipped to arrive no sooner than the day before your scheduled rehearsal. Your shipment may have to remain on the dock until you arrive. We are not responsible for items left on the dock or outside your locker.
Q: DOES SOUNDCHECK FACILITATE OUTBOUND SHIPMENTS?
A: No. We usually have air bills laying around that we could provide you with but aside from that, you are responsible for scheduling the pickup, and ensuring the driver has all needed documents.
Q: CAN WE LEAVE OUR TRUCK AND/OR TRAILER AT YOUR DOCK?
A: Our docks are shared by everyone, in addition to frequent shipment deliveries/pickups, and therefore we need to ask you to have your truck or trailer out of the dock space after you’ve completed your load in.
Q: WHERE CAN WE PARK A BUS AND/OR TRAILER?
A: We have a designated are for rehearsing clients so park trailers/trucks/buses. Please contact the main office for instructions.

Q: WHAT ARE THE HOURS FOR A ROOM LOCK OUT?
A: 8am to Midnight. We can accommodate hours past night, but it must be arranged in advance and it will be at overtime rates.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
A: 48 hours on a single day or hourly rehearsal. 7 days for multi day rehearsals. We know you want to make sure you have the space when you need it, but please be respectful. It’s unlikely we can rent the space on shorter notice.
Q:I WANT TO RENT A FEW HOURS EVERY NIGHT FOR A WEEK. DO I HAVE TO TEAR DOWN EACH NIGHT?
A: Not if you pay the date rate. This secures the room as yours all day/night. If you only want to pay for the few hours of rehearsal time, then yes, you’ll have to tear down and remove your gear so the space is available for other rehearsals the remaining hours of the day.
Q: DO YOU SUPPLY AN ENGINEER FOR REHEARSALS?
A: Your room rate includes an engineer to get you up and running. Normally this should take 15 to 30 minutes. If you are using in-ears, doing a showcase, or recording, you should bring your own engineer. We always have an engineer in the building for problems or consultation.

A: Just your everyday overhead fluorescent.
Q: CAN WE BRING LIGHTS?
