"Your mixes are only as good as your monitors and mix environment. When I began using the Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer I immediately noticed improvements in the low end clarity of my near field monitors, to the point that I no longer needed to use a separate subwoofer. Incredibly, the detail of high frequencies and image localization were also improved."

~ Al Schmitt
Steely Dan, Ray Charles, Quincy Jones.
"The Recoils are so heavy, I had to workout at a gym for two weeks before I could lift them! When I finally got them installed, I did not expect to hear as much of a difference. I was wrong. The bass and kick drum were the most obvious differences, but overall the image became less smeary and the low end was to die for."

"The Recoil Stabilizers arrived and I’ve got to tell you it really is amazing what a simple little thing like that can do to a system. Suddenly everything got clearer, punchier and more solid. I had been using them for a couple of years in stereo with the cheaper alternative foam units on my
5.1 system. Won’t be doing that again! These are worth their weight in gold...and then some."

"Since adding Recoils, when I take the recording out of my room and listen to it somewhere else, it is more representative of what I am hearing when I record. Before, I used to rely on 'feeling the fundamental' of the kick and bass coupling with the desk. This necessitated cranking the volume. Now, the speakers are decoupled from the console and I am really enjoying the balance, especially the low end which holds up at lower volumes as well as when played loud. Consider me satisfied!"
~ Ed Cherney and Jann Arden
The Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt,
Jackson Browne, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy.
"I cannot believe what the Recoils have done to the imaging and the precision in the low end of my monitors! It's unbelievable! Thanks Primacoustic."
~ Denis Savage
Sound Mixer/ Tour Manager
"With Recoils in place, the speakers seem to sonicly float, the low-end is more defined, and I hear fundamentals that I never thought were there. The Recoils brought new life to my nearfields—they have never sounded so good!"
~ Bil VornDick
Bela Fleck, Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas,
Marty Robbins, Mark O'Connor.
"After several hours of listening to many styles of music I discovered the Recoils really seemed to focus the low mids on everything... the thud of the kick, roundness of the bass, and the low strings on the guitar seemed more solid and defined, thus clearing up the mix and making the stereo image more detailed."
~ Joe Barresi
Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age,
Bad Religion, The Melvins, Skunk Anansie.
"I’ve been using the Recoils and dig them a lot. It’s like a veil has been lifted from my speakers. There is a clarity to the mids and a deep focus to the lows. I can almost see the sound now. I used to put my speakers on a rubber pad and a sheet of lead trying to accomplish this. The Recoils surpass that approach hands down, and without the health hazard."

~ Mick Glossop
Van Morrison, Sinead O’Connor, The Waterboys,
Frank Zappa, Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Revolver.
"I'm normally an early adopter in all things studio tech wise, but on this occasion for one reason or another I was late to the Recoil party. Boy have I been missing a trick. The thump as I placed the Recoils on my meter bridge confirmed the solid build: instantly I got tighter & deeper bass. Sadly even a low level buzz I'd got used to showed me it was in fact the tweeter not the surface. Most revealing was the effect on my Auratones & Avantone. They have hardly any bass an yet even they sounded better."
~ Steve Levine

Culture Club, China Crisis, Motorhead, Ziggy Marley,
Westworld, Gary Moore, Chair of the Music Producer's Guild.
"The Recoils? They are awesome!
The bass no longer gets sucked out from behind the console and the results are amazing: tighter bass, better imaging and a true representation of what is really going on. This makes it so much easier to work and mixes immediately transfer much better from room to room."
~ Dave Bottrill
King Crimson, Silverchair, Tool, Godsmack,

"Before I tried them, I looked at the list of endorsees and wondered how much of it was hype and how much was real. But the Recoils proved themselves as soon as I put them up! It's incredible how much of a difference they make. The Recoil Stabilizers are absolutely amazing! I've been raving about them to every producer, engineer, and friend that I know! "
~ David Isaac

Whitney Houston, Smokey Robinson, Billy Idol, Aretha Franklin.
"I have mixed 5 projects with Recoils and my room-to-room translation is better than it's ever been. It isolates my sounds to where I can hone in on trouble spots that I never knew existed. I now feel I can remix most of my catalog the way it was meant to sound in an environment I originally thought was doomed."
~ Devin Townsend
Strapping Young Lad, Ozzfest,
Steve Vai, Devin Townsend Project.
"These days where the focus seems to be more on esthetics, rather than performance, it's nice to see a product that excels at both. Your Recoils are terrific! The bottom end on playback feels very solid. It's a pleasure mixing with them. Consider me a fan!"
~ George Seara
Rihanna, Mos Def, Holly Cole, 50 Cent,
Sting, Herbie Hancock, Finger Eleven.
"It's amazing how something so basic in it's design and function can change how you view your sonic picture so radically. The transient and bass response times have become crystal clear and solidified, and my overall mixes have improved enormously. I am no longer reaching for outboard gear and plug ins as much as I once did to correct these anomalies."
~ Sterling Winfield
Pantera, Hellyeah, and Damageplan,
King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Hatebreed, Soil, Seventh Void.
"Never has so little done so much with so little expectation. These things are amazing. The imaging and solidity change of the low mids and bass is just astounding. The Recoils Stabilizers are an amazing product I never knew I needed. Now I can never live without them. Damn you!"

Tom Petty, Robert Randolph, Natalie Merchant.
"Like a lot guys out there I was using Foam pads to isolate my near fields and really didn't expect to hear much of a difference… Was I wrong! The difference was apparent immediately. Everything changed (for the better). Bass became tighter and more defined. Midrange and high's opened up. The sound stage became wider and deeper. The Recoils made what I thought was a great near field even better. The Recoils have become my monitor standard. Wherever my near fields go my Recoils are right there underneath them. I don't monitor with out them. Thanks for a great product."
~ Bobby Fernandez
Film Score Engineer/Producer
The Wolfman, Spiderman 3, Ghost Rider, Gran Torino.
"After recording a piano track, the best way I can describe sound is if it was a photograph, the focus just got sharper... like you could reach out and touch it. The bass went deeper without losing definition. Everything I played improved with the Recoil Stabilizers — it was clearer, offered sharper imaging and focus with more precise localization."
~ Tom Jung
Mastering Engineer, DMP Records.
"As soon as I replaced the foam wedges I had under my speakers, I heard a noticeable difference: The Recoils instantly sounded and looked way cooler. F…ing Awesome!"
~ Butch Walker

~ Dave Rideau
Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Janet Jackson,
Sting, TLC, Earth Wind and Fire.
"For the past couple of years, I've been using other types of monitor isolation pads, and thought I had the low end problem pretty much handled, until I tried the Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer. I was immediately blown away by the overall clarity in the imaging and they removed every ounce of low-mid problem I was having. Something the other pads obviously didn't do. These are the best monitor isolation pads you'll find on the market today. Second to none!"
~ Dean Landon
Roch Voisine, Taylor Dayne,
Warner Bros Television.
"I love the Recoils. My Genelec 1030's have never sounded better. They are more defined in all frequencies and I think this is a direct result of the low end becoming clearer and more focused. I had them on other isolators which improved the sound, but not near as dramatic a difference as the Recoils. I am very happy!"
~ Kim Person
Cimirron Rainbird Studio, Yorktown Virginia,
Tommy Emmanuel, Steven Bennett, Pam Rose.
"The Recoil Stabilizers have added a clarity in my monitors that I never had. The imaging has become much more dramatic and the upper mids have tightened up considerably."
~ Terry Lawless
U2, Bruce Springsteen, Janet Jackson, Chicago,
Phil Collins, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, Jackson Browne.
"The Recoils greatly enhance the monitor performance by isolating and eliminating the speaker's resonance when placed on the meter bridge of our Neve console. A great idea and great improvement. Monitors and "room" are everything and the Recoils improve the sound of both."
~ Randy Bachman
The Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
"The Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers work really well in letting the speakers do their job by taking away the outside physical elements from the musical equation. You get more accurate results all round. I rate the Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers a 10 out of 10. A must for all studio applications."
~ Paul Gross
Metalworks Recording Studios, Toronto.

~ Brett Chassen
Michael Schenker, Dave Grohl,
Great White, Lynch Mob, Thin Lizzy
"The Recoil Stabilizers work great under whatever speakers I put on them. They really cleanup the mud in the lowest lows. Real tight. Best of all, they really help translate the mix from one room to another and make it much easier to edit."
~ Jerry Douglas
"The Recoils have made a great improvement in the sound of my monitors. By isolating the monitors from my console the low end is much tighter and the overall sound is more detailed and focused. The imaging has improved as well and they look great. Another solid tool for the music industry."
~ Mark Egan
Joan Osborne, Sting, Pat Metheny, Larry Coryell, Gil Evans.
"When I first got the Recoils, I would use them, work for a while and then take them off. I kept putting them back. They just seemed to make working on the nearfields easier. I have to say that I am very impressed; the difference I hear in the sound of my nearfields is pretty striking. They seem more "in focus" and have more low frequency extension. Even the low mids are clearer. WOW!"

"It's all about mass. Recoil Stabilizers add a noticeable measure of clarity for serious listening. I'm impressed."
~ George Petersen
Editor, MIX Magazine.
"When I slipped the Recoils under my monitors and brought up a familiar mix, the difference was so obvious that even a one-eared sound engineer with 50% hearing loss could tell the difference. The lows and mids were significantly tighter and punchier, with greater separation and detail, with increased clarity across the frequency spectrum. A closer listen revealed an overall improvement in imaging and sharper definition of subtleties such as delay and reverb decay."

~ Lionel 'Dean' Jarvis
Music Director Nelly Furtado.
"LOVE LOVE LOVE! I did nothing except place my NS-10s on the Recoils and the warmth and true bottom immediately started flying out of my speakers; it was like finally hearing the true playback. They're a must have for anyone who plans on quality monitoring. Not having these is like using cheap gas in a Corvette; it's just never going to reach its full potential. The Recoil Stabilizers are a quality product, amazing build level and most importantly, the sound is dramatically better. I couldn't be happier with this purchase."
~ Evan Taubenfeld
Warner Brothers recording artist (The Black List Club)
and former Music Director for Avril Lavigne.

The Recoils work well, sound right and look good!"
~ Phil Keaggy
"I remixed the song using the Recoil Stabilizers and compared the old mix to the Recoil mix. I was amazed at the difference, because after all I used all the same gear except the Recoils. End result: You make better decisions when you have less to compensate for. It made mixing a real joy. These things are no small wonder."
~ Neil Citron
Steve Vai, Steve Lukather, Larry Carlton,
Quiet Riot, Johnny Hiland, Joe Satriani.
"Recoil Stabilizers are such a simple and logical solution to an age old problem. As soon as I put them up, they eliminated the 160Hz resonance from my furniture, lifted a veil of low-mid muddiness from my monitoring, and really clarified the imaging. What a lifesaver!"
~ Rob Tavaglione
Pro Audio Review Magazine.

~ Ron Skinner
CBC Radio Music, Toronto.
"Since adding Recoils to my setup, I have found that my mixes are translating so much better. Eliminate the resonance off the console and instantly - you have so much more clarity. The mids are much more balanced than before, L/R separation is amazing and guitars and vocals are finding their place with so much more ease. Amazingly defined. You've never heard NS10's sound so good."
~ Jonathan Fluevog
Dandy Warhols, Scissor Sisters, The Casanova Playboy.
"I bought two pairs of Recoil Stabilizers. I am truly blown away. Everything that I was looking for and more came out of those speakers. Every reverb, every room sound, every detail of the recording was there. We listened to Back in Black and heard things for the very first time! Then we put on the Beatles' White Album and the rest of the day was shot. Could not stop listening. It was perfection."
