Modern professional recording studio in the picturesque and quiet rural setting. Operated by Dan Friml, producer, sound engineer, musician and leader of the band Mean Messiah.
The studio is located in a beautiful environment of North Bohemia, in a renovated building of the former barn in settlement Lada, 30 km from German border, about 5 km from Úštěk and approx. 60 km from the centre of Prague. Available is a rest area (including Wi-Fi, TV and modern bathrooms), guests can relax in the garden around the building.
The Barn is the only recording studio in the Czech Republic which offers Solid State Logic (SSL) XL-Desk console. Spacious control and recording room with the emphasis on good lighting conditions and atmosphere is another unique element of our studio as well.
We are a modern, professional recording studio
The studio was built by Dan, originally for his own use. Gradually, as Dan’s reputation as a producer and the good reputation of the studio spread among the musicians, it was increasingly used by other bands. Unlike many other studies, The Barn aims not only to offer top-notch service without compromise, but also in affordable price ranges that can be enjoyed by novice artists as well. The studio has a spacious control room and recording room and, in addition to its unique acoustic features, we have been given a special emphasis on pleasant lighting conditions and atmosphere. The Barn simply offers the best conditions for getting the best results!
