Welcome to Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, DC. Originally started in founder Don Zientara's basement, the studio has been in continuous operation for over 25 years. During that time, virtually all of Washington's most widely recognized and acclaimed bands have recorded here, from Minor Threat, Rites Of Spring and Fugazi, to The Dismemberment Plan, Q & Not U, and Black Eyes.


We pride ourselves on providing a casual, comfortable space for people to create and record music, which is why so many musicians have made multiple records at Inner Ear. Technology, equipment, and maintenance are important to us, but vibe and energy have always come first. So have a look around, and feel free to drop us a line!
