Gut gehört zum guten Ton.
(«Guter Ton» means both "good tone" and "good manners". Also, my name is Gut. So something like: Gut is part of good sound/good manners.)

Film music composer
"During my film music productions in the Idee und Klang Studio I had the great pleasure of working with Benjamin Gut countless times. His unmistakable musical and tonal assessments, on which I could always rely, were always a great support to me during the recordings. His endurance and tempo are very impressive, so recording tracks were often already cut before I even asked Gut to do so. His technical knowledge is always at the service of the music and if there was ever a need, he also recorded bass and guitar tracks for me".
