The Scoop

Located in a 100-year-old stone church on Lake Hopatcong, the Barber Shop Studios is a recording and mixing facility with two control rooms and a large tracking room with cathedral ceilings. This is maybe the only studio in the world with an Italian restaurant located right on the premises.
