    It was a real pleasure working with 305 Horns. They delivered some incredibly sounding stems, all beautifully played and recorded, and a very generous number of them too! Mike and Jesse were very easy to work with, highly professional, great communication and I can highly recommend them. Thank you again and I look forward to the next one.

    Wonderful experience with 305 Horns. Not only did they play the parts I sent them exactly as written, they communicated clearly, were insanely fast with turnaround time but they also brought the perfect sense of live-ness, human-ness and soul to the piece. From a stem perspective; they were crystal clear, recorded on great mics and really have made the song come to life. Highly recommend and I'll 100% be using 305 horns for my future pop, funk, soul and r&b horn needs! Great Experience!
