After meeting with over 45 producers in 7 different states I finally found the perfect one, You're the best producer I've ever met. This cd is coming out better then I ever dreamed, and I dream big. People are freaking over the songs. Zack West - Zack West Holy crap Tim, it sounds great!! Just had 2 good listen-throughs. I really like what you have done. I feel like you understand what I was going for and kept it’s core essence - just made it better. The space in the mix is awesome. - Scott Lanaway You're freakin awesome, dude, - Charles Jurden Jr. “I’m a Christian artist/songwriter and producer myself. I’ve met many engineers in professional studios that had great gear, but didn’t impress me all that much with their talent. However, when I came to Tim's to mix my CD the results where beyond what I ever expected… best mix I’ve ever heard! There’s no doubt he can take any project and bring it to life! I’ve learned a lot from Tim. It’s been a blessing working together and I look forward to future projects. I highly recommend him.” - Josh Caldwell www.joshcaldwellmusic.com "Wow... it gave me chills, your results, they are amazing." Noah Mintz Mastering on mixes we did for them. "Tim has done an amazing job in the capacity of producer, arranger, guitarist and mastering on my various projects over the years. On my latest project, he has taken, what I thought was pretty good songs and come up with edits and arrangements I never would have seen that took a good song and elevated to a great one!! Thank you Eclectica Studios and Tim Dolbear!!"  - Billy D'Allyn / De Allen Band Just got word back from Deann our singer, she's completely flipping out at how good the mixes sounds - Day Break Desire "I have been involved with Tim in three full-length CD's and a couple of single song projects and keep coming back for three reasons. Being that he is a multi-instrumentalist, he knows how to get the best sound out of a given instrument and is an excellent session player to boot, playing any style needed. Since he, himself, is a songwriter, he understands song structure, the "hook" and how to get the most out of a song. Finally, his demeanor is professional and he is enjoyable to work with" - Bob Baker - FPCC Worship Band & Songwriter, Ashley Lohman Project "His studio is great. He's got everything you want as far as fixing things up or fixing mistakes. He's very professional, very quick and doesn't fool around," Mike Gleeson  - Innisfree "I'd rather drive the hour and 20 minutes, from San Diego to record with him. He understands the song as an art form in and of itself.  I've recorded with others down where I live, but I always end up wanting to drive up with him because frankly no one can do it better. He has a good feel for what makes a song a good song. " - Meliesa I came to Tim Dolbear at Eclectica Studios as a singer/songwriter/keyboardist without a band but with 15 original songs needing guitar, bass, and drum parts performed and a complete album needing tracking/mixing and mastering.  I came away with quality sounding master recordings that ROCK!  All at an affordable price, too.  Tim was easy to get along with and his musicianship and engineering skills were superb.  Tim's wife, Angela, was invaluable as well in the CD artwork and layout design process.  I had home-recorded songs that I was proud of when I first walked in to the studio, but I walked out with a radio-ready CD that I could be proud of even more! - JM Veazey - Croonboom We worked with Tim on another small project a few years ago at his home studio.  His quality of work and professionalism were a reflection his faith and dedication to his Lord.  This is why we came back to him for a much bigger project, 'Great Everlasting.'  Tim Dolbear has high morals, strong character and impeccable integrity.  We could always count on him delivering what he promised, when he promised. -  Mark Lohman - Manager for singer Ashley Lohman My experience working with Tim at Eclectica was a sure delight.  It gave me an opportunity to record in a studio with a spiritual atmosphere and Tim made it so easy.  Through his efforts, his experience and kindness, he served as a blessing to my ministry. Eclectica Studios operates like one of the big studios yet with simplicity and comfort.  I thank God they were there for me during my radio ministry days. - Jennetta Harris - J-Joy Ministies
