Tuff Gong Studio

Tuff Gong International was founded by Jamaican Superstar Bob Marley in 1965. Bob was affectionately call “The Gong”, and Tuff you had to be to survive in the music business in Jamaica. Tuff Gong was originally based on Orange Street before moving to 56 Hope Road, which is now the home of the Bob Marley Museum, The Bob Marley Theatre, The Queen of Sheba Restaurant and Things from Africa Boutique.

The company subsequently moved to 220 Marcus Garvey Drive, and includes a recording studio, mastering room, stamper room, pressing plant, cassette plant, wholesale record shop, booking agency, as well as offices for Rita Marley Music and Ghetto Youths International.

The famous Tuff Gong International studio is one of the largest Caribbean studios. Artists, musicians, producers and tourists travel from all over the world to see and use it. The studio is said to have a vibe conducive to creativity, and this may be because the mixing board in the studio is the same one used by Bob on all of his records.

Additionally the mastering room gave birth to such songs as “No Woman, Nuh Cry”, “Trenchtown Rock”, “Stir It Up”, “Concrete Jungle”, “Redemption Song”, “Buffalo Soldier” and “Could You Be Love”, just to name a few. Since its inception, Bob Marley and Tuff Gong International have sold millions of records, and continue to do so.
