There isn’t enough good things I can say about Mihai and SugarBear studios . He’s been adaptable to any projects I’ve sent his way . I play in several bands and he’s fitted the sound I was after for every project.

He himself is an excellent musician so he has a deep understanding of musical construction and arrangements , he’s willing to help hatch out ideas and was a big part of the excellent reviews we had with the last The House of Haunt album.

I’ve had the chance to work with Mihai on a few projects and he always goes the extra mile to make sure that your project sounds professional. Whether it’s getting extra takes during recording, tweaking faders and digging through plugins and magically making vocals better during mixing, or getting that final polish during mastering you can tell that Mihai is passionate about what he does. Oh, and he’s a great guitarist too! Thanks Mihai!
Mihai did an excellent job recording and mixing some demos for me. He is an extreme talent. I would definitely recommend his work to anyone that needed recording done.
My project was at an impasse. Main recording and dubs were finished but when my engineer moved out of town we needed a new source to mix it. I’d already known Mihai for while when my buddy Mike suggested I reach out him to finish my album. I’d already heard Mihai’s work and was impressed so it didn’t take much convincing. I heard Mihai’s recording and mixing on the Twenty6Hundred discs along with various other artists work that appreciated his skills. My project wasn’t an easy one; besides converting the format we had to go through each track take to find the final performances. Tedious but well worth it. I’ve had several years experience recording but was but was always disappointed with the end result. It never sounded as good as I’d hoped but I could never tell why. Good mixing is why and Mihai mixed my album well. He brought the personality of the instruments in a way I could not only live with—as it done so much in the past— but was actually proud of. Mihai has got skills alright but the thing that stood out is how much he cared about the finished sound. That combination is a winning mix.
