Hi I am Toby, I am an experienced session drummer and home studio owner. I am available to record drums and percussion for your music.
Over the past 9 years working as a professional touring and recording musician, having toured across the UK/EU I have gained recording experience having worked at some of the top studios! Some of these include Abbey Road, Metropolis, BBC Maida Vale and Real World. I now offer bespoke drum recordings for artists from my home studio!
How does it work? Simply send your track as an Mp3, BPM and any references you may have. After I've done the recording, I'll email you an MP3 of your song with my drum take. Then we'll talk about any amendments you may want. Once you're happy/marked the job complete, I will send you the RAW individual drum stems plus a stereo drum mix.
Studio Gear: I currently have up to 14 channels of drums and the microphones I use are SUB kick, Beta 91A or D112 (Kick in), Beta 52A (kick out) SM57 (snare top and bottom), Sennheiser e604 (toms), AKG P170 (Hi Hat), RØDE M5 (overheads), Ribbon RB500 (Mono overhead), AT4047 (Knee Mic), Ribbon RB500 (room mic), 50s Telephone Mic. All going through a Focusrite 18i20 and an AD8200 Into LogicProX.
Drum gear list: Ludwig Classic Maple 22x14 12x8 14x14 16x16, Roto Toms 6" 8" 10"
Wide range of snare drums (vintage and modern), cymbals, heads and percussion.
