Reviews of our Archiving, Restoration and Mastering Services

Anne T.

Stewart has just completed two projects for me. He transferred a moldy and scratched 1940’s 78 records to CD, and transferred a collection of eleven 1940’s 78 jazz records to CD for me. I am delighted with the results- Stewart carefully cleaned the records, eliminated the scratches and background noise, and the CD’s all sound fantastic. Stewart even designed CD labels that echo the original record labels. It is amazing and wonderful to enjoy the beauty of this music after all these years. Stewart is a true professional and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. I highly recommend his services.

The McCormack Family

Thanks so much for the quick turn-around transferring my Mother’s 50 something-year-old audiotape. The sound quality of the CDs was terrific. We now have a family treasure we can share with all those family and friends who loved my Mother and miss her singing. The joy these CDs have brought us is immeasurable. We’re so glad we found you. Best wishes,

Steve T.
