    Larry is a fantastic hand percussionist with a lot of creative ideas. He helped me on one of my latest tracks to accurately record some specific clapping parts, whilst providing some improvised parts and inspiration for other variations on the congas, tambourine, triangle and maracas. Very responsive and kept me informed every step of the way - great job Larry!

I had a small idea going in but he really worked with me to make my project come to life. We had over 25 communications to get it just right; can't say enough about the experience as I'll be limited by this text box! Fantastic Larry! Thank you for making this song magic for me.

    Although your song did not need percussion, you should hire him because his musical ideas are so good that your song would improve 100% ... but in case you are looking for the best hand percussion for your song, you will not find anyone more creative, enthusiastic, communicative and amazing percussionist than he...

Interview with HandPercussionTracks

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I pride myself on an extremely high quality recording system. I use Neve and UA preamps, Maag EQ's and a gigantic selection of microphones that can handle anything percussion wise. Beyond that I use Mogami gold standard cabling, Apogee convertors and proper power conditioning. In other words, this isn't a cheap set up where everything is ultimately plugged into one power outlet, which results in RFI and EMI infiltrating your session stems. Additionally my instrument inventory is 700 + pieces currently. I also have a 5 TB Dropbox business account, which enables file retrieval at anytime for past and older session stems. My internet connection is an AT&T fiber connection at 1000 Mpbs. If you would like a complete microphone list please let me know. There is a partial one listed above in my recording services description.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: Ive been working in the recoding field since 1992. Thats what I set out to do and here I am.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: Ive been hired to play on more styles of music than I can list. Everything from DIY singer songwriter tracks to XBOX and Playstation games, film trailers, TV shows and more.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Concentration, professionalism,time management and follow through. Not to mention a well-developed workflow that has been honed and perfected.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I bring over thirty years of recording and musical experience. I play strictly for the song/project. Beyond that I have an incredibly good understanding of proximity effect, SPLm headroom and acoustics which results in amazing sounding tracks for your song.

  11. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  12. A: I do recording jobs from the simple to extreme. Anything from a simple shaker track to a fully orchestrated percussion track. I have online sessions credentials ranging from the D.I.Y. artist to Walt Disney Studios.

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: Anyone who is successful, unique and honest.

  15. Q: What's your typical work process?

  16. A: Depends on the project. If someone wants a maraca track (for example) I typically ask a few questions. Do you want a mono or stereo track ? Do you want a mixture of natural room sound ? I don't have any one single process since I have to wear a lot of hats rhythmically.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: At times I will ask several questions, its a time saving method on my part. When people ask me "can you track a conga part in my choruses" ? I will try and focus in on the specifics. Quite often people are unsure, at that point I will offer several examples and let them pick what works best.

  19. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  20. A: 100 % guarantee when you're happy my job is done.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: Simple when needed, aggressive when the times right. Play for the music.

  23. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  24. A: Give me as much info as you can. What do you want rhythmically? If you want a tambourine track, do you want a "jingly" sound or a dry sound. Do you have a specific pattern in mind? If they aren't sure I am perfectly comfortable trying out different ideas until the right vibe is found.
