In the Top 50 All Time Favorite Voices! Smooth, mature baritone but capable of everything from serious religious and political reads to zany characters and cartoons.

(See his feedback page for a long list of satisfied clients and lots of 5-star ratings!) He guarantees his work to be satisfactory no matter what type of client he might be working for. Bob's studio was acoustically designed by professionals at Auralex. It's equipped with Sony Audition (formerly Cool Edit Pro) and a host of microphones, including Neumann U-47, Shure SM-7, RCA 44-BX and 77-DX ribbon mics.
