Here's what some of our clients are saying about Studio Del Maestro...

To my San Diego Author/Speaker friends,

I don't often (ever really) offer unrequested endorsements, but this is one I have stress-tested myself and proven worthy… and one that could be of great service to you.

Most all the SUCCESS magazine interviews I do that end up on the CD inside the magazine are done from the studio of Richard Del Maestro. The man is a magician… a true maestro!

If you have followed the evolution of SUCCESS since I started publishing it you can recognize Richard makes me and every one of our interviewees sound brilliant a significant uptick in the quality of the audio production when I finally found Richard versus the chop shops of other audio producers – that is the product of Richard's work (including my improved performance based on his coaching). Richard makes me and every one of our interviewees sound brilliant.

Anyway, he is right here in our backyard. I know how many audio producers I had to try (and be frustrated by) before finding someone I liked (important) and could trust (REALLY important – there are a thousand little decisions made to create an excellent end product).

I have zero vested interest in this recommendation besides appreciation for the extra effort Richard has invested in SUCCESS and the knowing this can also be of value to you and your body of work.

To your success,

Darren Hardy
Publisher & Editorial Director


Once again the CDs sound exceptional as I knew they would. Every training CD you've produced for us has been as good as it gets.

Great work!

I'm working with the phenomenal Richard Del Maestro, who is not only a skilled engineer and editor, but a brilliant director, too. When Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS Magazine, introduced us a while back, he told me that Richard is the only person on the planet that I should consider if I were to ever record another audio book. High praise from an eminently credible source. So… Richard it was. And is. And he is truly remarkable.
