Kazbar Systems Testimonials

  

Before we moved into the house to start tracking alt-J’s ‘The Dream’ I knew there had to be quite a bit of work done to improve the acoustics of the live area as well as the control room. Gav is always the first person I’d call in this situation. He and Dave made the process extremely easy. Once they had the dimensions and knew the materials of the construction Dave was able to map out an acoustic treatment that completely transformed the sound of the room without intruding on our space. Installation by the Kazbar team was quick and easy and we were able to start recording straight away. The whole process was effortless and I love how the album sounds. Thank you Kazbar for making it possible. You managed to turn a horribly echoey/reflective room into one of the best sounding live rooms I’ve ever used!

When planning to construct a new studio within the Metropolis complex for the award winning songwriter/producer/artist Camille Purcell, Kazbar Systems were, of course, my first choice of studio constructor. When it came to designing the room, the team went above and beyond expectations, spending a great deal of time working with us, discussing the desired technical requirements, aesthetic outcome and finishes for the studio and advising us on options to work within our budget. The finished product is all we could have wished for and more, I can’t rate them highly enough. Special shout out to Gavin Miller, who could not have been more helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. Thank you, Kazbar Systems, it was an absolute pleasure working with you!

Kazbar and their whole team have put together a wonderful studio. It’s incredibly flexible whether it be for tracking, mixing or working to picture in all of the rooms at once or independently. Not only that it has a wonderful sound and their care, precision and unrivalled advice is reflected in every aspect.

A true ‘end-to-end’ studio build company that I trust wholeheartedly. I wasn’t the easiest of customers, with all of my crazy ideas, but the whole team at Kazbar delivered. Our podcast studio sounds even better than it looks & Dave’s patchbay design makes working across multiple spaces a breeze! I can’t recommend them enough.

I do a lot of mixing for broadcast in my studio, and though it was never a big and boomy room, I was keen to tighten up the sound for a finer focus on detail. Gavin & Dave sized the studio up for some wall and ceiling mounted absorbers as well as a broadband bass trap. This treatment, with the addition of a new Eve sub to partner the Focal monitors, achieves a more highly defined, well represented bandwidth to work with. With less ambiguity, especially in the lower end, I’m noticing mixes coming together more punctually, with a lot less fatigue on the ears. What sets Gavin and Kazbar aside from the competition, apart from their consistently great prices, is the Grade A pre-sales advice and after-sales support. Definitely worthy of a place on your speed-dial.

What a fantastic service Kazbar provided given the short amount of time available to install the studio. They rose to the challenge and had it ‘up and running’ in unbelievable time. The continued support has been second to none, well done Kazbar, you guys rock!!

Working with Kazbar Systems was an excellent experience for us at Tileyard. Having worked with the Esoteric Pro Audio system at many Tileyard events ranging from DJ nights to full band record label showcases where the best sound performance was an absolute necessity, we could not wait to incorporate the Trio system into our upgraded Gallery space.
The final results have been exceptional, the system sounds and looks incredible delivering excellent sound performance.

Amongst so many retailers who don’t give a s**t about after-sale service, Kazbar Systems are the only choice for me so I have peace of mind when buying new gear. A first rate and friendly service.

Kazbar had been dealing with many artists based within the building prior to us deciding on setting up this facility so they naturally felt like the right guys to go to for the initial specking stage then the full installation later on. The installation was very smooth and painless with the Mac all setup and tested before they installed. We were making lots of noise by the afternoon!!

Rob Rawlinson

Studio Manager/Producer, ATOMIC STUDIOS

Kazbar were recommended to us by a good friend when talking about needing to upgrade the studio. We did most of the upgrading near to Christmas and Kazbar were very reliable and personable. Easy to get a hold of and everything happened on schedule. Upgrades are all always tricky (when working at the limits of technology) but Kazbar were excellent and I’d happily recommend them.”

I know I’m in safe hands with the guys at Kazbar, have never shied away from problems, always been on hand for support and always delivered when we need equipment quick. Gavin’s set a standard for “customer support” that will be hard to match.

Having used a variety of companies over the years for studio equipment and tech support,
I can honestly say that Kazbar are by far and away the best. For prices, knowledge and most importantly, after sales service and support, Gavin and his team are head and shoulders above the rest. Quick, efficient, friendly- I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Kazbar go all the way, getting gear from anywhere, anyhow as fast as it gets at prices I haven’t seen bettered. And more importantly, provide a “complete” back up service with a prompt and cheerful vibe throughout. Nice people and true professionals in a crowded market of chancers and blaggers!

When you want it…. there it is thanks to Gavin and the guys at Kazbar. Not just the box with the goods, but the personal service to go with it, which is the most important commodity in this business. I can fully recommend these blokies as they have serviced me for 6 years. Keep it up boys.”

When I needed to upgrade my Mix Plus system to HD2, Kazbar handled the whole thing from advising me on the best way forward, through sourcing everything, product registration and upgrades, to studio installation, offering advice and practical help when needed. Any software and compatibility issues were dealt with quickly and I was able to finish work on my old system in the morning and by late afternoon on the same day I was able to carry on working on my new system. I didn’t have to do a thing apart from sign the cheques. If only everything in life was this straight forward.”

If you want to buy your gear from a spotty herbert chewing on a sandwich… then go ahead.
If you want your equipment supplied, configured, backed up with an expert after sales service guiding you through the minefield of current developments, all at a great price then talk to Kazbar. I’ve been using Kazbar for many years now over several systems and it’s simply not an option to think of using any one else. They care about what they do, as much as you do.”
