    Additional Fees
    Nobody likes to be nickeled-and-dimed to death.  So here, at Barn Productions, we try to avoid any hidden or additional fees.  The only fees we charge aside from our hourly rate is for the usage of our musical instruments, simply to cover any wear & tear and the expense of replacement parts.  If a Barn Productions staff member is playing an instrument for your recording, there is no charge for usage.  Otherwise, we prefer you bring your own instruments to the studio.  The musical instrument usage fees are as follows:

    Drum Set: $40 / session
    Note: We do not permit the usage of our cymbals under any circumstances.  So make sure to bring your cymbals with you even if you are using our kit.
    Guitars: $10 / session
    Piano/Keyboard: No charge
    Hand/Auxiliary Percussion: No charge
