"National Media Services is a top notch operation. I was very pleased to have these guys work with me on my first solo release, 'The Songs I Sing". Will Shenk mastered the album and in my opinion, went above and beyond with his talent. I can say the same for the Graphic Arts department. National Media Services has put together a work force that works for and with each customer. The turn around time was amazing and I look forward to more projects with them. My fans love 'The Songs I Sing'! Thank you National Media for making this dream a reality!"

"National Media Services provided mastering and duplication services for Dead Men's Hollow's fourth CD, 'Angels' Share'. Will Shenk's expert 'acoustic ear' coupled with the personal attention we received throughout the process created incredible results. The CD was awarded 'Best Bluegrass Album of 2010' by the Washington Area Music Association. We have already begun recording our next CD in the NMS studio."

"Will, you are great at what you do. Absolutely GREAT!! If by some chance anyone would want to argue that fact, then they are a FOOL!"

"...Our experience in producing 'An Evening With Buddy Holly featuring Robbie Limon' was top notch from the first day we entered the studio and began a relationship with Will Shenk, National Media's recording engineer. Will is personable, candid, analytic, and works tirelessly to give the artist more than he expects... Will Shenk has an incredible ear which proved crucial for listening to Holly's tracks and suggesting the ways 'that sound' could be duplicated... Will includes so much more in his personal definition of 'recording engineer'. If an artist can articulate his objectives, we are confident that Will Shenk can achieve them in the studio..."
