Edu Cominato on SoundBetter

Professional musician for 23 years. Recording and Live drummer for Jeff Scott Soto (Journey, Trans-Siberian-Orchestra, Sons Of Apollo) and Geoff Tate (Queensryche). I'm a solid, pocket and musical drummer who plays for the music.

I'm offering my services as a session drummer, I'm known by my musicality and solid drumming by my peers and clients. I have recorded more than 20 albums throughout the years and I'm really fast.

Recently I added to my services my Roland electric kit, it's a great solution if you need things to get done fast and sounding amazing, I work with the best drum libraries on the market like Slate Drums 5 and Superior Drummer 3.

  1. Review by Craig C.

    A great Job as usual. Edu always has a quick turnaround and knows just what the song needs in each section. A total pro!

  2. Review by Craig C.

    Edu is one of the best producers I've had the pleasure to work with. All I gave him to go off of was a basic demo, and he got me the perfect drums for my song within just a day. When the song had a small change later in production, he also got me a revision ASAP. Easy to work with, fast, and most importantly great product. I will definitely look Edu up again next time I need some great drums

  3. Review by Fabio Duarte

    Extremely talented musician. Plays drums and sings with equal ease and precision. Truly understands the drummer's role in a band, whether in rock, pop, country, heavy metal...that makes your song sounds even better

  4. Review by Roger Benet
