"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
"Questions." It has that punch that was so
lacking before. Again I want to thank you."
"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
Great job, Bob!" Larry

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

"Thanks, Bob. As a singer/songwriter, I knew a bit about how to make songs that reflected how my feelings flowed.
Or so I
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
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
feelings about what can be said and what typically is not said."

"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
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

"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
I also looked to see what kind of projects you've done.
I liked how you had clients from different genres, as one
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."

"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
world that is a rare occurrence." LARRY LEVY - The

"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
This will be the first of a series of classics that we are
planning. Thank you again for your hard work."

has a much broader and richer sound. Your input and
engineering work has definitely helped us become more

projects." JAKE VERTIN - The

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
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
"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."
