I was going to make a separate thread regarding my own mastering studio as they do not appear under mastering services above. But it might make sense to put it here.Rather than fill the page up with text you can simply follow these links for lots of information on my lengthy professional career, equipment, client list, rates, etc.

http://www.masteringmastering.co.uk/mas ... ineer.html

Free mastering preview. Free mix down advice when job is proceeding.

Some mastering before and after examples reside here (bottom half of page):

Mastering is important but I don't get why all these producers with a year of experience worry about it.
I'd worry about making a tune that's worth mastering :)

Thanks Wub, I'll be going through the threads shortly.
