Dave Ormsby on SoundBetter

Experienced session drummer with over 15 years of performing, recording and writing. All played and produced at my home studio. Ready to help contribute to your record.

My name is Dave Ormsby, I am a UK based session drummer and engineer who has been playing both live and in the studio for the past 15 years. In that time I have built up a client list that includes multiple Grammy winning producers and artists around the world including Louis Berry, The BBC Philarmonic, Tom Ashbrook, Natalie McCool, Mark McGann, producers Steve Fitzmaurice, Adrian Bushby & Steve Levine and recorded for clients such as Sony, the BBC, Channel 4, Eurovision and many others.

I record out of my home studio, which has been professionally constructed and treated both inside and out to help provide the best recording environment possible. The studio features Neve, API & SSL style preamps, Universal Audio interfaces and software as well as a large collection of high end, industry standard mics and a wide range of vintage and modern drum kits/cymbals so there is plenty to choose from for your project. I can also provide electronic drums/sounds for tracks from authentic Roland equipment.

I regard myself very much as a song drummer and my main focus is always to find a drum part that works for the track above all else.

Myself and my studio have great support from various companies, including Remo Drumheads & Percussion, Cosmic Ears, Roland Electronics, Big Fat Snare Drum, Porter & Davies Tactile Monitoring.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

  1. Review by Anders Johnsen

    I have known Dave for a few years and done various projects with him including a tour and several recording projects. He is a sweet human being, passionate and always deliver excellent results. Recently I have hired him through his online drum recording service where he delivers great sounding drum tracks remotely - and they always fit the song perfectly!!

    An incredible musician and a truly great colleague in the drumming-industry. I love bouncing experience and gear-geek with this fella and drool over the really nice sounds that comes out of his studio. I can really recommend working with Dave!
