Backstage Pass

This guided tour of Studio Bell’s artist spaces will provide a behind-the-scenes look at three world-class recording facilities that house historic consoles—including the Olympic Studios console, Trident A-Range console, and the legendary Rolling Stones Mobile Studio—and a collection of musical instruments that spans 450 years of music innovation and technology.

Visitors will catch a glimpse at the working spaces where artists make magic happen, and hear the stories behind notable artifacts as a trained musician offers a demonstration. They’ll gain insight into some of NMC’s most treasured items—from the earliest instruments in the NMC Collection, such as a 16th century Trasuntino Harpsichord; to modern electronics, like TONTO, considered to be the ‘holy grail’ of synthesizers; to the extremely rare Hammond Novachord (only six functioning Novachords remain in the world!) on which celebrated Canadian folk singer-songwriter Basia Bulat recorded her last album, Good Advice; to the largest item in the NMC Collection, the King Eddy.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour time.
