But, the most important thing we offer is our 20+ years of recording experience and our 40 years of being a musician! We have the skills and experience to help coach you into delivering your best performance possible. But don't take our word for it. Go to our Indy CD page where you'll see plenty of folks who have made DBW Productions their home base and read some of their testimonials.

What We Do

Our specialty is full production services for Singer/Songwriters.

So, you have a great song and can carry a tune but you don't have a band and don't know how to record. Now what? Well, you've come to the right place! DBW is your one stop shop for producing your demo or CD project. Most all production can be done "in house". This includes expert guitar and bass guitar playing, keyboard and drum programming, lead and backing vocals and even live drums! Using the DBW rhythm section we've produced many CD's for artists giving them a real band sound.

If you need great production then you've come to the right place! Read our FAQ to learn more.


Meet Dave

David Chamberlin | Songwriter | Music Producer | Engineer

David_Chamberlin_and_Ron_Chamberlin
Dave has been making music since the age of 5, first starting on guitar and piano and finally on clarinet. Playing the Ohio bar scene at the tender age of 16 Dave ended up relocating to Florida with the band "Dorian Gray" (their drummer was Jani Lane, front man for Warrant). Dave wound up in LA and graduated from Musician's Institute with a degree in advanced guitar playing. While being a full time guitar teacher for 8 years, Dave "stumbled into" recording and decided to make that his main profession. Well, it's now been 14 years since DBW Productions first opened it's doors and Dave has produced countless artists and over 70 Indy CD projects!

Mixing

You record it, we'll mix it!

With the advent of today's home studios, a lot of musicians now have a home studio, which is great. But the thing they don't have is a tuned control room and (more importantly) the experience to do a professional mix. That's where DBW comes in. We can take your self produced tracks and give them a professional mix and even master them so that they sound comparable to today's modern recordings. We'll arrange for you to send us your tracks either via internet (ftp) or the mail on a cd or dvd data disc and will walk you through the process in terms of file formats, etc. We can open native Garage Band, Logic, Digital Performer, Pro Tools and Reaper files. But, it's easy enough for us to work with any DAW format if the tracks are all bounced down correctly. Give your home recording a more professional sound with the help of DBW!

This Just In!

Guitarist Paul Weitz and vocalist Donna Deussen have finished their amazing sounding jazz CD! This CD features their fabulous arrangements of some known standards. The other musicians include: Gus Duffy-drums, Matt Van Benschoten-bass, Geoff Nudell-clarinet and flute, and Wayne Wayne-alto sax.

We've just added a new beast of a computer. It's a Mac Pro 2.66 12 core and it is fast! Along with offering a state of the art machine we continue to invest in the latest and greatest software and plugins. Also just added is the fabulous Kemper Profling Amplifier. The Kemper can capture and guitar tone from a real amp and then store it for later use. It comes with 100's of great guitar amp sounds and has allowed me to "profile" my existing amp collection. In english this means I have some killer new guitar sounds available for my productions!

Long time client, Paul McCallum (son of NCIS's David McCallum) is all done with CD #2. Here's some live footage from a recent recording session here at DBW featuring Tom Buckneer on tenor sax and Domenic Genova on bass.
