They're toasting in Virginia and Colorado, as Airshow Mastering (www.airshow mastering.com) celebrates 25 years. The Grammy-winning studios serve scores of clients from String Cheese Incident to Smithsonian Folkways in two locations: Springfield, Va. — the original facility, run by Charlie Pilzer — and Boulder, Colo., where partner David Glasser moved 11 years ago.

Q&A With Airshow Mastering

Glasser's facility includes four studios: Jim Wilson and Dominick Maita's A and B mastering rooms, and James Tuttle's Home Away From Home recording/mixing studio, in addition to Glasser's Sam Berkow-designed, surround-capable Studio C. Since moving to Boulder, Glasser has enjoyed not only a lifestyle change, but also the give and take of working closely with the other engineers.

“There are people coming and going all the time, and there are different engineers to bounce ideas off of — it's a real community,” he says.

That communal spirit was lacking in Pilzer's one-room operation, so he's creating a similar environment in his hometown of Takoma Park, Md. Berkow has designed a multiroom space with acoustics and surround capabilities that resemble Glasser's studio.

Sharing the new studio will be Mike Monseur, who specializes in audio restoration, and recording/mixing engineer Frank Marchand. Pilzer and Monseur's new rooms will include similar gear: Sonic Studio soundBlade and Maselec mastering consoles and Dunlavy monitors. Those rooms go online this winter. Meanwhile, Pilzer says the foundation of Airshow's 25 years of success remains “customer service — helping artists, producers and engineers fulfill their artistic vision.”
