What is Fuzzywallz?

Fuzzywallz Mastering is an audio recording, mixing and mastering company, established by Jon Weil in 2004. Here’s a little history on Jon, along with information about the studio and the company in general…

OH.

Originally hailing from Cincinnati, OH, Jon started out writing songs, playing guitar, and singing at the age of 8. A few years after that, he caught the recording bug and hasn’t looked back. It all started with recording his and his friends’ bands on cheap tape decks and quickly escalated from there to full-blown multitrack productions, using every bit of gear he could get his hands on. “Fuzzywallz” is what he called his first home studio, for fairly obvious reasons.

AZ.

In 1998 Jon moved to Tempe, AZ. By mid-2004, he had graduated from the Conservatory of Recording Arts in Sciences and established Fuzzywallz (LLC). The next few years were spent recording and mixing out of (mostly) home studios, mobile rigs and running live sound. Word-of-mouth and a maybe little luck led Jon to engineer some sessions for international heroes, the “Gin Blossoms”, at Uranus Recording Studio. His work on their album “No Chocolate Cake” led to him becoming the Chief Engineer from 2010 until it’s closing in 2015.

During that time, Jon got to work with hundreds of local acts and quite a handful of major-label artists too (see the extensive client list). After Uranus closed, he continued working with many local (and national) artists around town. Most of the mixing and all of the mastering was being done at his home studio, dubbed the “Laguna Suite”.

Jon and his family made the move to Shoreline, WA in late 2016. By the start of 2017, he had a new studio (the “North City Suite”) up and running. For the next year Jon kept very busy working with Arizona clients and building up a new client base in the Seattle area. In October of 2017 they moved to a much larger house with room for an even bigger and better studio.

Jon Weil using his hands to explain...something

 

“Jon Weil has not only recorded, mixed and mastered the tracks of hundreds of different local & national artists, but has truly mastered the art of his craft. The thing that really makes him stand out from other mixing and mastering engineers is his personality. Strong communication and treating clients fairly is also a strong point. Jon is the type of guy who really cares about the details. He’s the one making sure the lighting in the studio is perfect for the artist. Jon cares about EVERYTHING, but first and foremost he cares about the artist’s happiness. When left to mix and master, his engineering truly shines above the rest & all the years of experience and experimentation show. Jon has said that knowing the rules in audio engineering is important, but knowing how & when to break them makes something special…The proof is in his work.”
