“In February 2018 Old Barn installed a new wireless Sound System with a hearing loop in St Matthew’s Church Blackmoor and Whitehill (a beautiful Victorian gothic church, designed by Waterhouse). I cannot recommend Old Barn highly enough-from start to finish they were professional, flexible and utterly charming. They understood the specific requirements of our context, dealt with my personal anxieties about handling a wireless system with understanding, turned up on time on the right day, did a flawless installation and were excellent value for money. The new sound system is working well and even the children who read at services can be heard clearly and well. The people of St Matthew’s are delighted and we will continue to use Old Barn for the next stage of our church improvements-a drop down screen and projector.”

“The service provided has been excellent, from the initial inquiry visit, patience in helping find the appropriate specification to meet our budget through to final installation. The PA and audio system has more than met our expectations and has been designed for any future enhancements we may need. We would have no hesitation in recommending Old Barn Audio”
“We use oldbarnaudio every year for our school ‘Stars in their Eyes’ concert.
The professionalism and quality of sound from Phil and Neil is always outstanding and it’s safe to say it wouldn’t be the same without them.
This year we had a full professional band on stage with the singers and everyone commented how amazing it sounded on stage and out front of house.
I can totally recommend oldbarnaudio and we will continue to use them for our concerts in the future.”

“Old barns advice, professionalism and kit all surpassed exception. The project involved multiple zones, inputs and channels across the site; all to run simultaneously throughout the day, which didn’t seem to phase Old Barn; all of which they managed to deliver on budget. Great company, will definitely use again”
Having been in hospitality for many years, the various sound systems I have purchased over those years have been lacking. after a conversation with one of the organisers of a major music festival ‘Old barn Audio’ and Phil Clark were highly recommended.They don’t just turn up and plug in a selection of lights and a HiFi! They arrive with years of knowledge, survey the building and then tailor make the sound system and then complement it with lights that quite frankly leave you breathless. I am now the proud owner of a club that doesn’t fail to amaze one and all.

I asked OBA to ‘lift the roof off the building’ with the sound system as I wanted to attract a more teenage market as well as youngsters with the sound levels. They have done that and more; in fact we’re probably not reaching a third of the system’s capacity. OBA were an amazing bunch of people to work with. It’s phenomenal what they have given us and we’ve received a number of highly positive comments — including one from the owner of a local nightclub who was extremely impressed with our state of the art sound system.
We have never heard this room tamed by any system, until Old Barn Audio brought their Martin Audio MLA Mini system into our venue – thanks for proving it can be done!)

I can’t fault you guys. High quality set-up with great sound – and, more importantly, no fuss at all – despite having three very different bands to wire-up across the evening. The fact that you provided this for a very reasonable fee (especially since we had two engineers for the entire event) and at such short notice adds to my sense of amazement. Our event could easily have been skewered without your last-minute help. I can positively recommend Old Barn Audio to anyone wanting high quality sound at an affordable price, delivered by very lovely people.
Hi Phil & Neil,
On behalf of Supergrass, myself and my wife, we would like to thank
you and everyone at Old Barn Audio for making this an amazing weekend of
entertainment. You helped create the atmosphere and sound to what has
been called the “wedding of the year” by many, many guests. Your attention
to detail and professionalism meant that Supergrass played one of their
most enjoyable performances and really got the party started! From beginning
to end you made it happen and we will all forever be grateful to you

Both Neil and Phil from Old Barn Audio were a pleasure to work with. They promptly
replied to all my communications and continue to do so. Their equipment was faultless
and unlike other PA hire companies they did not try to over complicate things. They took
the time to understand exactly what I needed and took no time at all to set up the PA. I
would recommend Old Barn Audio to anyone who is looking to hire PA equipment for one off
events or (as I am) looking to develop a long standing business relationship with a professional
Thanks – you did an excellent job. It was great to be able to rely on you
to co-ordinate with the three different sets of musicians and the electrician and to deal
with all of their technical requirements both in the lead up to the wedding and during the
day itself. As you will realise from my comments, I think having you guys was money very
All the best,
Hi Phil & Neil,
Thanks for being so super efficient! 1920’s gramophones can be a technical challenge for
some people but you managed to make us sound fabulous and the wedding was a great success.
We’d happily recommend you.
