Welcome to Da Goose Mastering

My name is Jeffrey de Gans and I am the proud owner and head-engineer of Da Goose Mastering. My dedicated mastering-studio is located in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, in the Rotterdam area, the Netherlands. This is where I dedicate my life to reveal the sound of your record!

With kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet,



I offer my mastering services to musicians, producers, bands, labels and studios. 

I use only the best analog hardware and digital software to improve the clarity, definition, and depth of your precious recordings.

I also offer stem-mastering, though most of the times stem-mastering is not needed and it will not make your master better. Please contact me first if you think working with stems might be the way to go.

Other services

Besides mastering I can help you with editing, restoration and transfer

If I'm going to master your music, I can give you some feedback on your mixes. And if you are looking for someone serious to do your mixing, I have some awesome mixing-engineers in my direct connections which are pleased to help you!

If you are looking for inspiring lectures or seminars about mastering or audio in general, i’m also here to help you.

“Mastering is the final step before your music is released to the world. I take that very seriously.”

Stem Mastering

With stem mastering individual audio tracks (stems) are grouped together for independent control and sound processing. The max amount of stems that I work with is 5.

 1 track  € 60  € 70  € 80  € 90

 5 tracks  € 300  € 350  € 400  € 450

Please contact me first before deciding to order stem-mastering. Most of the times stem-mastering is not needed and stereo mastering will work fine.

Important notice:

  • Revised mixes that require new mastering € 50
  • Modified mixes that use the same settings € 30 **

** New mixes that use the same settings needs to be send within 7 days after the original mastering, or else I will charge the regular mastering-fee.

Turnaround times, ordering and Payment

Singles or small EP's can usually be done within 3 workingdays depending on my current schedule. Albums will obviously take longer, please contact me for my current schedule and to discuss your deadline.

Sometimes it’s also possible to have Sameday delivery mastering at a small extra fee. Please contact me first if Sameday delivery mastering can be done.

I prefer the use of the online order system for single track mastering.  In case of an album or other specific wishes that will not fit the online order system, please provide me with all this information: companyname, contactname, full adress, VAT number and emailadres. You will receive an agreed upon invoice and after the payment is payed in full, I will start mastering.

All prices are excluding 21% Dutch VAT.

Da Goose Mastering’s friendly service has communication as key, so don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions. I look forward to working with you!
