About us..

In 1996 we at Clear Blue Studios started from the ground up, learning from the best in the business, always investing and updating gear, incorporating the warm, analog sound that our clients demand, along with honest pricing and most of all: FRIENDLY COMMUNICATION!

  Thus we have gained the hard-earned status of one the premier recording studios in northern Wisconsin.

We are nestled in the beautiful 100-foot pines of Northwoods of Wisconsin, and have been conveniently serving the areas of Eagle River, Rhinelander, Tomahawk, Wausau, Wisconsin areas, as well as larger cities like Green Bay,Appleton, Oshkosh, Eau Claire, Ashland, Madison, Fond du lac,and even clientele' from Milwaukee to Minneapolis since, with many satisfied clients.
