Pete Maher Testimonials:
Pete did a great job mastering ‘(AHK-toong BAY-bi) Covered’, not an easy task with 12 completely different sound sources from 12 different studios, he managed to make it sound as cohesive as the original, no mean feat indeed.
I’ve listened on my monitors, headphones, and laptop speakers and you’ve really captured the vibe perfectly, the balance of frequencies sounds great; bass sounds awesome, no snare harshness at all, vocals cut through and sit nicely, guitar sounds great, and the top end frequencies sound really nice. They sound absolutely incredible !!
I just had a chance to hear your magic on our ‘London Loves You’ track! I really must say.. We are knocked out by the amazing difference you have made to the work. Nothing short of EXCELLENT. We are proclaiming you ‘THE MAN WHO DOES IT BEST! Based on the three mastered versions we now have.. Ding Ding.. Yours is infact SUPERIOR.. AND THE ONE WE WILL BE USING.
Thanks for all your amazing work. Brilliant and dynamic!
Pete did a really great job and was extremely user friendly!
Pete is quick, attentive and very professional. His ability is worth it’s weight in gold. Anyone thinking of doing the mastering process themselves, think again. Pete may hold the key for arriving in style. High class!
Pete Maher is just amazing. Though his pedigree with major labels and artists speaks for itself, it’s his massive passion for music that obviously inspires such great results, where his attention to detail, quality and an endless positive approach has been nothing short of inspiring. What a great guy and professional. I will be working with him on many projects to come. Thanks mate.
Superb results every time. Pete will bend over backwards until the client is happy. Very easy to work with, listens to everything you say to him and executes wishes well. I highly recommend him. Charlie Hoskyns-Abrahall, produced Shane McGowan and The Popes with Chris Brown (Radiohead, Beatles).
I met Pete whilst networking and looking for mastering services. His track record of the work he has done for major labels and established artists says it all. Yet when he engages in a project for an independent musician his work ethic is second to none with the same attention to detail putting the artist’s and songs needs first. A true professional with the music at heart. The industry needs more people like him.
Having spent 30 years in the industry working with various mastering engineers from Bernie Grundman to Sterling Sound to the The Townhouse etc I have not come across a more consistent mastering engineer than Pete Maher. Pete’s work is first class every time bar none. He delivers precision masters in a timely manner and on budget every time. I think he sets the standard of what modern day mastering is all about. You seriously can’t go wrong working with him.

I worked for 18 months mixing and remixing my album and was completely at a loss as to how to get it mastered at a price I could afford. Then, through a reference from a mixing engineer who was transferring old ADATS to digital files for me I happened upon Pete Maher. And boy am I glad I did.
Pete is a no-nonsense professional. He answered my enquiries in great detail and delivered everything he promised at a very helpful price. I could not have dreamed of having a better sounding album for release. He took what was there and gave it tremendous depth and presence. My album sounds great on all platforms, from the dinkiest computer speakers through to headphones, the car, and hi-fi systems. Thanks Pete!
‘Reserved’ is my first self production and despite working with the biggest artists on the planet, Pete was more than patient and professional with my learning curve! Based on my experience, I would recommend Pete without hesitation: I will not be looking anywhere else to get my tracks mastered, Dave Fletcher.
Pete Maher is a very professional mastering engineer, with a fantastic ear for polishing off a catalogue of songs. He is very approachable and helped guide us through the mastering process and made what was a very unknown area to us at first, the easiest part of the recording process. Delivery of the masters was returned quickly but at 110% quality! We would recommend Pete to any artist, signed or unsigned! Affordable but top quality and professional!
Pete Maher is the guy I’m going to go to every time I make a record. He is very professional and knows exactly how to get the best out of your work. It was a dream come true to work with Pete on my debut album.

We met Pete for the 1st time after he mastered our version of ‘Tired of Waiting’ for the Kinks Fundraiser album in aid of the Pete Quaife Foundation.
Not only were we blown away by his mastering but he was a really nice guy. His knowledge of Rock n Roll music really impressed me & we became friends. No one else will ever master our tracks now, Pete Maher, our tunes are in your very safe hands !
Pete has done a really amazing job and has brought out the best in the mixes! Thanks heaps, Two 5.
Bastru asked Pete Maher to master the album because he is an independent and the artist’s he has worked with bear testimony to his quality of his work. What is amazing is Pete gives the personal touch, time and care despite working with some of the biggest names around and the masters have lost none of the rawness of the original mixes and still retain the live feel that we were seeking.
After I had written, produced and arranged my debut album I had to consider it being mastered. This was to be the first time that I had to hand the songs over to someone else, and work with them to bring the album home. It quickly became apparent that during the process of deliberating on who was going to master it, the planets lined up, the stars aligned and I was sent into the orbit of Peter Maher. From the start we had a simpatico, we understood each other’s passion for music, and we worked intensely to get it right. And until that moment arrived, nothing less would do.
They say there are not many people on the extra mile. That is where you will find Peter Maher.
Working with Pete Maher is a breath of fresh air. I have used many ‘mastering engineers’ found online and have always been disappointed with the ‘brick walled audio’ that is returned back ( I mean anyone can do that with a Waves L2…) Pete’s mastering enhances the music and creates well rounded and balanced masters so that each track compliments the next in the work. My projects are often recorded in ‘unusual spaces’ and Pete has always risen to the challenge and delivered great masters – recommended often to my fellow audio professionals. (Pete you owe me a fiver for this) – Wilson Nash, Producer/Recordist (Lloyd Yates, Rocco Deluca)
We only go to Pete for our mastering, Nobody else. He’s the man and knows what he’s doing. Couldn’t recommend him more.
We came across Pete Maher after a couple of masters came back from other engineers that just didn’t sound the way we wanted and communication with them was less than ideal. Working with Pete was a million miles away from those experiences and he just ‘got’ what we wanted straight away, we were treated in the same way I imagine as his other high profile clients. He took the time to give us the 4 masters we wanted and was patient with our numerous questions. We are working on our debut album at the moment and it would be inconceivable to use any one else after this, a true professional and a nice chap- thanks Pete.
I think, if my memory is right? I found Pete back in the days of MySpace when he was advertising online and offering to master the first song for free. I of course took up this offer and wishing to sound him out sent him a track I thought might be a little tricky to perfect. He (of course) did such a great job on it that I got him to master the rest of my “Handley With Care” album…. And the rest, as they say is history.
Pete is a master mastering engineer, and did an absolutely amazing job on our album Dreamface. It was like he put the album into high definition. He made everything kick, bite and scream like we wanted it to, bringing out the visceral element of the live band that we wanted to capture.
