Hi there, my name is Tony Mantz, a.k.a. 'Jack the Bear', and welcome to the MySpace page for Deluxe Mastering.
For those of you who don't know me, here's a little run-down on myself and what Deluxe Mastering is all about ...
I've been mastering for most of my working life in the music industry, which began back in 1981. I've had a stint at recording and mixing, as well as being a club and radio DJ, but thankfully found mastering as my calling. I've been lucky enough to have travelled extensively around the world, meeting and learning from some of the best in the business, and was trained in the art of vinyl mastering by Rick Essig at Frankford Wayne Mastering Labs, NYC. This was the same studio that that produced the likes of Tom Coyne and Herb Powers. Mastering is my PASSION! I just love it! It's what drives me and inspires me daily.
My recently-built facility is located in Brunswick Victoria, just off Sydney Rd, and is a stone's throw from downtown Melbourne. We are extremely proud that our rooms are designed by the legendary studio designer George Augspurger from Perception Inc, LA; a first for Australia. If you haven't heard of George don't worry, you would know many rooms that he has designed, including Marcussen Mastering LA, Sony Mastering NYC, Sunset Sound LA, Electric Lady Studios NYC (purpose-built for Jimi Hendrix), A&M Mastering LA to name but a few.
Deluxe Mastering is a no-compromise facility that has been built from the ground up to be not only technically amazing but a comfortable place to be creative. We really want you to feel at home. LCD TV with cable, wireless internet and a fully equipped kitchen; it's all here for your use to enhance your experience.
We invite anyone to make an appointment with us to come in and evaluate your mixes before you get them mastered. We offer this service at no charge or obligation.
Here at Jack the Bear we are committed to our craft and clientele and invite you to join the many that have given us the privilege of cutting their recordings. Check out our website for more information on us, or feel free to contact us, either by sending us a MySpace message or getting in contact via our contact details above. Thanks for taking the time to check us out. Enjoy the ride ...
