“It was a pleasure to work with Erwin. His professional skills and knowhow resulted in a blasting record. I worked with several other producers and saw many different studio’s from inside, but the Toneshed Studio is mostly recommended if you want the best out of your musical project”
Harold Gielen – Legion of the Damned
“Erwin did an excellent job mixing/mastering our second album “This Is Tomorrow” by Siege Of Power. We will ask him again for sure!”
Bob Bagchus – Siege of Power
“Top quality studio, top quality mixing and top guy to work with. Analytical, highly skilled and fast-acting. Highly recommended”
Patrick Mameli – Pestilence
“Erwin’s contribution to our music really took us to a next level. He has the knowledge, the patience and the sounds. We will surely work with him for future albums and other projects”
Robert Woning – Dead Head
“Working with Erwin on our album has been nothing but an absolute pleasure. He is very involved in whatever project comes his way, and is very open to new ideas and concepts whilst knowing exactly what to do to lift your project to its full potential. If you want your project to be the best it can be, look no further!”
Jeroen Joosten – No Permission
“Erwin gave our album the right punch without sounding outdated or “retro”. It has become the perfect blend of old fashioned aggression and the current state of technical affairs, so I take my hat off for this guy.”
Wannes Gubbels – Pentacle
THE TONESHED TEAM
Owner, producer, mixing- and mastering engineer
From the moment he strummed his first guitar at the age of seven, a world of musical enchantment unfolded. From the thrilling 16-year run with metal band Mangled to diverse projects like Spitting Nails, The Newheads, Battersea and Hacksaw, Erwin’s musical pursuits evolved.
At the age of 25, he embarked on another journey, capturing the essence of local bands within their rehearsal spaces using a Roland VS1680 portable workstation. The year 2004 marked the birth of Toneshed, as Erwin realized his vision and painstakingly built his very own recording studio from the ground up.
This eventually resulted in collaborating with iconic names such as Legion of the Damned, Siege of Power, Pestilence, Dead Head, Pentacle and many more. He works for esteemed labels like Metal Blade, Napalm Records, Massacre, Hammerheart Records and sevaral others.
Unveil your musical vision, and Erwin will collaborate to enhance their sonic brilliance, consistently ready to go that extra mile.
Fons van Dijk
Studio assistant, editing engineer
For as long as Fons can remember, music has been his calling. Armed with homemade wooden guitars and drum kits, he’d eagerly jam along to Iron Maiden and Metallica music videos. Eventually, the drums won him over.
In 2016, Fons enrolled in the Metal Factory, a specialized music education program focusing on rock and metal.
In late 2019, Toneshed came on his path. After filming a few drum covers together, they discovered their collaboration was a good match.
With his curiosity for all things music, he offered his assistance when he realized Erwin could use a helping hand in the studio. Under his mentorship, he has learned the tricks of the trade and now serves as an assistant engineer, contributing to every project that comes their way.
He is also the drummer in Sisters of Suffocation and works as a drum teacher in Eindhoven and Horst. Interested in drum lessons? Find out more at www.fonsvandijk.com.
