    Yeod very professional sounding tracks overnight. He uses top gear and has a treated room. He's my got-to guy for this instrument.

    Yoed is my go to cellist now. He's the total package. He's got World Class technique, World Class microphones and Preamps and a sound treated studio. My tracks were bone dry with no room reflections, giving my engineer total flexibility. Most studios don't have bass traps as Yeod's seems to have. Above all, Yeod doesn't charge extra for revisions and delivers exceptionally fast.

    Yoed is an excellent cellist and a brought a wonderful expressive quality to my work. His turnaround to get the music recorded was just one day and he kept me in the loop with messages along the way. A credit to Soundbetter, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

    Yoed has been nothing but professional and accommodating, offering to help out in any way possible to make sure that I am completely happy with the end product. I didn't know what to expect upon listening to the first draft of his string arrangement for one of my songs, but once I heard it I was very moved and emotional and couldn't believe this was really my song. I will definitely be working with Yoed in the future, and I can't wait to hear what he'll do next!

    Yoed did a truly beautiful job in arranging my melody for cello and string accompaniment. He did this from an audio file (no written score) and he added nice harmonies and very well judged accompaniment. I am truly delighted with the final result and will be working with Yoed again.

    I've never worked with a cellist/string arranger before and the job I had for Yoed was slightly unusual: I needed a cover of one of my favorite songs so that I can play it in my wedding. Yoed covered it SO beautifully, it gave me chills. He's extremely professional and delivered the track so fast, I was very impressed. I would 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone.
    If my life had a soundtrack, I would want Yoed to compose it.
