Budget priced sung jingles?

posted on Thursday 15th December 2011 at 15:14

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?

Many thanks.

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.

I’m not actually selling for CPMG any more – it became too much hassle and audio was always delivered late.

I can still get Jingles Factory – visit their site for demos and prices.

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! :)
