Budget priced sung jingles?Follow @mediaukdiscuss
I have often wondered if there are any agencies that produce sung station jingles at relatively low rates and wondered if anyone had come across any companies at all?
I would recommend DevaWeb and/or Ignite Jingles. Chat to them about your budget: I suspect they can help.
Normally price is based on the size of the Radio station you wish to broadcast the jingles on.
For community and RSL stations the prices will be much less than big stations, but you won’t get good quality sings for under three digit figures per cut.
As James suggested Chris at Devaweb is worth speaking to.
Also talk to Simon at S2Blue – I’m not sure what their current deals are, but in the past they’ve had good deals for RSL’s and the like (depending on your format a while back they were selling re-sings of the Steve England ‘back catalogue’ at discount prices.)
Also is Dave Langer still in business? He was UK agent for Thompson Creative which had some decent stuff back in the day – though some of his UK stuff was not as polished as the US material.
I believe David Hemsley is now European agent for CPMG – they do have cheap stuff – but only any good for oldies/gold formats.
I’d talk to DevaWeb. Never been a fan of the S2Blue “sound”, I must admit.
Another vote for Chris @ Devaweb, worked with him on all our imaging for nearly 9 years now (2003 seems so long ago now) and he has always dealt with any requests to re-do stuff that we were not 100% happy with.
Thanks to James, Craig, James and Phil for the mentions.
As well as Devaweb which I’ve had on the go for about 12 years, last year I set up Ignite Jingles which concentrates on sung jingles for radio. Lots of examples on there etc.
Would be happy to chat with Matt, and I appreciate the financial limitations at community and RSL... er, and commercial stations! :)
dont buy cheap :)
you need the top and tail, the do-nut, the top and the tail and the bed. cheap companies give you one.
“and the bed”
Glyn, go to JAM and see if you get the music track.
Then I wouldnt use them. Simples.
Ps, im talking commercial sung jingles by the way, not station idents.
