John Hunter Acoustics
As a bedroom music producer, I've long struggled with accurately mixing and mastering music in an untreated room. When a friend mentioned they'd found someone who produced affordable custom made sound treatment AND would install them, I was onboard.
John was a total pro. Easy to work with, responsive and excellent at his craft. I couldn't be happier with the workmanship and quality of the sound panels, and the job he did installing them in the room. I'd recommend John to anyone I know who might need help with acoustic treatment, and I'd work with again in a second.

John solved a problem I've had in music production for 15 years for around $1000: Poor acoustics in my room that led to bad mixes, which meant every sound I made or song I wrote sounded muddy, which led to two times the overhead on everything I was doing. That amount of money seems daunting when you're 30, but when you only have 1-2 hours a week to record or compose, it's worth saving up for. I had been looking for someone like this for years, came across recommendations for him on a private message board for audio production, and reached out.
A few weeks later he drove to my house, took measurements in my room, and provided a sketch of what we were going to do. Two months later his team was back at my house installing the panels. The room now sounds *amazing*. I no longer have to redo every mix. He custom-builds his own absorption and reflection panels, having expertise in the materials, design, and placement. This is not something that can be trusted to DIY or some $300 Auralex egg-carton kit. The difference between what I had before and what I have now is tremendous.
Since my working with him, two of my other friends have also jumped on the bandwagon and hired him to fix their studio problems as well. I highly recommend having him come fix your studio space — it is life-changing. No amount of crappy DIY solutions comes close to trusting a pro who does it for a living. If you have a space in your home where you work on music or play instruments, do podcasts, or any type of audio work, I guarantee it is worth every penny to have him treat the space.

The first thing they teach you is to have the best sound environment or else you will be mixing in circles. John built custom panels that fit my room perfectly, and now I can hear a big difference in my mixes. They translate well to cars, ipods, soundsystems etc. Getting your room treated should be your number 1 priority if you take your music seriously.Original recommendation

John is as professional as it gets! Starting from the consulting process all the way to the very last hole drilled, he does perfect, clean, and quick work. The difference in sound is night and day. His panels and bass traps not only make your room sound better, but they also make it look better. I was able to custom pick every color and size from a wide range of selections but still stay on budget. I would highly recommend him for any project, big or small.Original recommendation
