Today was first time at this studio and I had such a great experience! I was very happy that Kyle was very attentive during the session and guided me throughout to make sure everything sounded good. I am very happy with the song and quality of work and professionalism! I will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

I have worked with Ben Bernstein on numerous projects. He is reliable, friendly, very funny, professional and skilled at his many talents. I have performed with Ben, utilizing his talents as a bassist, but mostly I have turned to him for his consistent and high quality work in the studio as an engineer. I produce numerous genres of music: folk, rock, hip hop, country, salsa…Ben is willing to do the research and work to make my recordings, mixes and masters sound top-notch.

Working with Bruce is just great. He doesn't put any pressure on you or rush you in anyway. The song only took a little over an hour to record since I came in with my lyrics written and the flow already in my head. He's good at making suggestions you wouldn't of thought to go with in the first place and letting you do what you want with them. All in all if I remember correctly, we spent about 25 minutes mixing/editing and about 45 recording. I would definitely recommend Bruce Leighton to anyone who is thinking about recording in a studio for the first time as he is affordable and easy going.

I recently inquired through Thumbtack to record a song for a promotional video my company is putting together. Chris responded immediately and was very prompt in all of our communication throughout the process. He was also flexible with his schedule and was able to meet with my team in short notice. When we arrived to his home studio, he was ready and raring to go with our track and was very patient since none of us our professionally trained singers. He provided us with a finished product in about a day and quickly turned around our suggested edits. He was a pleasure to work with and we hope to work with him again in the future.

I am an aspiring new artist who was looking for a place to accomodate with My needs and listen to what i have to offer and help me with my music! ABM did just that, i told them what sound i was looking for and how i seen myself singing the music. They were spot on when they started to play me a sample of what they could offer me and imediately fell inlove with this studio. Not only are they really talented in the music they produce but also give really great feed back and are really friendly and really make you feel comfortable knowing they are there to help you and listen to their clients needs! DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED! A must visit if you're in the San Jose area and are looking for great music! Thank you so much G Major (Giao).

Verified review

Adam Hayman is a talented, well-rounded musician who always had a way to help me understand any musical question that would come to mind. Whether it was in regards to guitar techniques, music theory, audio production, recording, or even self-promotion, Adam would have a well explained response and would take the extra time to check if I understood or not. He is very understanding about the variety of skill levels and will offer different ways to practice or play so that one can find what works best for them. Taking lessons from Adam has created a large impact on my musical growth and has allowed me to use the learned tools to further my practice and technique.

I recommend ModernTone Studios to anyone who is looking to further their musical journey or begin one! The teachers there are so passionate about helping their students get to where they want to be with music. I’ve been taking lessons with Jacob for 1.5 years now, once a week. My progress since I started taking lessons has been lightning speeds faster than if I were to continue learning on my own. Jacob is very patient, knowledgeable about music theory and all kinds of music, and has an amazing knack for teaching. He makes the lessons fun and never wastes a moment of my time. He pays attention to details and explains things in a way that’s easy to understand. Most importantly, I feel that he has helped me gain much more confidence in myself as a musician. My passion for playing music has grown immensely since taking lessons and I’m really looking forward to recording and producing my songs at ModernTone Studios! And in addition to the great teachers, the studio also has a very relaxed professional *modern* atmosphere. Good vibes all around! I am so grateful to have stumbled upon this Bay Area gem!

    I have spent the past two years recording an epic 4 hr jazz opera with Rick Vargas. Throughout the process, he has been the model recording engineer. He is at once calm and easy going, yet also inspired and focused. He offers consistently helpful feedback but only when you request it and always in a way that makes you feel safe and supported. His musical ear is as strong as his technical prowess. He is patient, smart as hell, and in short great at what he does. He is by far the best engineer I have worked with.

    Ralph is a remarkably intuitive and efficient one man studio to record with. Being a world class guitarist and teacher doesn't hurt. Also having played in excellent bands for so long gives him range. I recently did a recording with him that was a rush job of sorts with lots of fixes and he was amazing. He can actually tailor whatever recording project to the wants and needs of the artist. In short: He gets it. He works really hard, puts the project first and is more than fair to say the least in what he charges. I give him the highest of recommendations. You won't regret working with him. Ps. He is calm and friendly as well. He puts the client at ease knowing we're in safe hands.

    Working with Nathan Reich was a dream! He has a positive and calming energy, which made me feel like the camera wasn't even there. He filmed a behind the scenes portrait of the recording process of my latest album, so that quality was key in order to avoid interrupting the creative process that is recording music. He received feedback from my team with grace and sent us drafts efficiently and promptly. Each step of the process was easy and fun: pre-production and planning, the filming days, and the editing process. Start to finish, Nate was a total professional, not to mention an incredible artist! In love with the final cut of his film.

    Wonderful and professional environment. It was my first experience ever with a recording studio so I was a bit nervous but they talked me through everything very simply. I am so happy with my demo CD! I will not go to any other recording studio ever! Great experience!
