figure out, what frequency the note is (there are charts that give you that information), set a parametric eq to this frequency with a really high q (at best 1/12 octave) and knock that band down as required.

if it affects too much of the rest of the mix and you cant go down to that exact track you can automate the eq to work exact at the position in question.
Be sure to double check what you are doing on a good set of headphones, there is every chance that the boomy note is in your room or speakers and not actually in the mix.

if your room is boomy and uncontrolled, he's not good enough for mastering.

no room is 100% perfect, but you should know the thiny weaken of your room - my one is a bit long at f# - if f# is a bit to heavy, i know that this is ok (sometimes i double check with headphones).

there are some dynamic eq's who have scalings in notes, very easy to set to overloud tones.

this page help also

Notennamen Pianotastatur = Klaviatur Bezeichnungen Note Ton Toene Namen Keyboard Klavier Frequenzen Fluegel MIDI alle Noten deutsch englisch Notenbezeichnung System Kammerton Frequenzen Tonhoehen umrechnen Uebersicht Akkorde Klavier Notenfrequenz Not

it's also a good thing to learn the most important keys -

c is 65/130/260
a is 55/110/220
e is 41.5/83/166

and so on...

Even in a great room don't trust the monitors too much. Back in the day most monitors weren't as good as what we typically had at home so we used broad strokes in the studio double-checked by what we heard back home. There are speakers you can learn like NS10s but there are also many speakers that have holes in their response that are utterly useless as monitors even though they sound impressive.

that's one of the reasons why i started to build my own speakers.

back in the days there was not the same technology thab today, to have a speaker/room combination who give you a great picture is for me unalterable.

but hp have even more holes in their response, mostly in hi mids and highs.

Speakers are better in hi-freqs where there is not that much of a room problems
Headhones are better in lo-freqs
both complement each other

I start by only considering monitors that have a track record for producing excellent results. It's all about the results.
