"I appreciate all the advice, and the care you have given my project.  Your work has completed my CD and it is now as I had
envisioned it.  I appreciate the service and communication."  Tommy Fox -

"
You have no idea how pleased I am with the results of your mastering on this CD.  I must admit that I was quite used to the
way the original tracks sounded so that the low end took me by surprise...ALMOST in a negative way.  However, the next day,
all the nuances of the clear vocals and tight bass lines sank in and I was in heaven.  I especially like the work you did on the
second track "Questions."  It has that punch that was so lacking before.  Again I want to thank you." 
Gerry Brenes
CD Title:  Chromatic EP


"What struck me right away was I could turn up the volume and it didn't distort or saturate my ears.  The changes were subtle.
I liked the fades and the musical flow, as you put it.  The vocals all around sound very open and breathe much better.  You did
a great job and I appreciate your professionalism and your great communication.  I am very pleased with the final master.
Great job, Bob!"  Larry Levy -

"
Received my master and reference CDs for my upcoming album.  Bob Speer at CD Mastering Services did an awesome job!
Everything sounds great."  Robert Russell
CD TITLE:  TAKE ME TO YOUR MOUNTAINTOP



"Bob, you nailed it.  Seriously, well done.  I'm incredibly appreciative of the effort you put into getting everything just right.
The CD is exactly how I envisioned it from the time I began the process of creating the album."  Gabe Wolf
CD TITLE:  VICTIMLESS CRIMES



"Thanks, Bob.  As a singer/songwriter, I knew a bit about how to make songs that reflected how my feelings flowed.  Or so I
thought.  Actually, I only knew a little bit, perhaps just a tad.  Our first go around was filled with learning opportunities and I
appreciate not only your openness, but also your informative style to share aspects of the complexity of the mastering process.
I came back twice more and basically had a hands-off comfort ability to rely on you to make my sketches as good as they could
be.  In the end, I now have FOUR CD compositions to reflect my body of work over thirty years of trying to find a way to
express my feelings about what can be said and what typically is not said."  LARRY SMITH -

I want to thank you for all your work.  The CD sounds great.  I just got them back from the replicator yesterday and I shipped
one out to you today.  Again, thanks for all your help."

"Bob, thanks for all your great work.  Everyone that's heard the CD is stunned by how good it sounds."  JIM HEWITT - Barn Jazz
CD TITLE:  BARN JAZZ VOL. 2 - THE NIGHT OF THE DANCING VEGETABLES


"
Let me just say... The CD sounds awesome... I'm listening to it non stop.  Your art of mastering is an instrument you are very
well versed at.  I really can't tell you how much your work has touched me.  Thank you, thank you, thank you sooo much...
This is truly awesome." 
John Blue
CD Title:  The Love Project


"I am very satisfied my CD.  Everything sounds so solid.  It sounds like you understood what I was trying to accomplish on
each track.  You did a great job, especially considering what you had to work with technically.  I appreciate your attempts to
compensate for the differing tonality and sonics of the tracks.  I wanted them to sound like they all belong to the same CD, and
you accomplished that in spades!  You never asked me why I picked CD Mastering Services.  It was because of an article you
wrote
What Happened To Dynamic Range which I very much agree with."  Jeff Epstein - Flash Jack Eppington
CD Title:  It's Not A Fantasy


"I received the disk today. It sounds AWESOME!  Its perfect."  Randy Ashberry - 
Heaven Falls Hard
CD Title:  Solace


"I wanted to give you a little feedback on why I chose CD Mastering Services.  When I was searching the Internet, I had an idea
of my budget.  Some guys were charging $700-$1,000 for 48 minutes...which I thought was too much.  On the flip side, some
guys were only charging $200 bucks.  I have an idea of what goes into mastering a project, and you usually get what you pay
for.  Your prices were in the middle, so I thought that was fair.

I think a good web site is important.  I found yours easy to navigate and actually pretty informative (I read almost all of it).  You
seemed to really have knowledge of the subject matter and the fact that you've been doing this over 20 years was definitely a
plus!  I also looked to see what kind of projects you've done.  I liked how you had clients from different genres, as one of the
strengths of my music ministry is that I write in a bunch of different styles.

Lastly, communication is super important to me.  I contacted you early to see if you were interested in the project.  I liked how
you responded and you were sincere in wanting to master my project." 
Steve Kropp
CD Titles (2):  The Bridge,  ASCENSION SONGS


"Great job, Bob!  I love the spacing between the songs - good flow and it keeps the music exciting.  Balance from song to song
is also excellent.  You do great work and really care about the music - you are an involved listener and technician.   In today's
world that is a rare occurrence."  LARRY LEVY - 
The Histrioniks
CD TITLE:  CAMOUFLAGE BABY


"Thank you very much!  I received the Masters.  You guys are awesome!" 
Adam Whitmer
CD TITLE:  THE SILVER LINING


"I received the CDs and they sound great!  The introduction, music, format, etc. was perfect.  The quality of these exceeded my
highest expectations.  I thought they would be good, but not this good!  Quite frankly, you, my brother, are gifted!  I was very
impressed with your ability to take the "hissing" out and improve the overall quality.  I assure you we will be sending more work
your way!  This will be the first of a series of classics that we are planning.  Thank you again for your hard work."

the future."  Moshe Mualem -
Kanfuze
CD Title:  One Dreamy Life


"I appreciate your level of service, attention to detail, and your helpfulness in explaining the process and cutting through the
hype I encountered on the web sites of other services I investigated.  A quality product was required and your excellent work
has made it that.  I look forward to working with you on future projects."  MICHAEL FAUBION

CD TITLE:  TRAVELIN'


"Last night we compared the original mixes we sent you to the mastered CD.  What an unbelievable difference!  Our album now
has a much broader and richer sound.  Your input and engineering work has definitely helped us become more skilled in the
mixing/editing process.
  We will definitely use CD Mastering Services for future projects."  JAKE VERTIN - The Aisling Project
CD TITLE:  LITTLE MOMENTS


"I've listened to the CD on several systems and it sounds really good - very nicely balanced."  MILES FENDER - Charlottesville
CD TITLE:  THE HERON THAT TAUGHT US


"We are going to take this song, play it for several drummers who are interested in playing with us, and then going into a
recording studio and doing several songs 'for real'.  We need the song to really have that hard rock 'punch' so these drummers
will know what we are all about and what kind of style we are looking for.  I think its great that you followed up on our project.
We have played for quite a while and most places are just interested in getting the money and not really helping the artists.
This is good.  Thanks again."  Byron Totty
CD Title:  Demo


"I just wanted to notify you that the test CD sounds great!  I want to say thank you for the time and effort spent on the project.
My engineer also agrees on the quality of your work.  Looking forward to getting the master CD's shortly.  Thanks again."
