Recent film credits include 'Armstrong' (Harrison Ford), 'USS Indianapolis' (Nicholas Cage)

A big welcome to J3T drum tracks from myself, online session drummer – Jon Howells. For the last 18 years I have been recording online drum sessions for over 500 producers, composers and songwriters worldwide, all from my studio in London, UK. I have provided the highest quality recorded drums and percussion for over 1200 projects. With over 25 years of experience I’ve had the pleasure of working with many artists including ‘Avril Lavigne’, Katy Melua’, ‘Lemar’ and Janet Devlin.

Over the years I have diversified into recording orchestral percussion, latin percussion and afro percussion as well as full kit which has made my services attractive to film and video game composers.

  1. Review by Justin N.

    I'm so lucky to have had the pleasure to repeatedly work with Jon (and his amazingly talented son Toby). Jon and Toby are top tier pros with amazing recording equipment and skills. They deliver crystal clear tracks, organized and labeled perfectly. They always deliver quality drum tracks very quickly, and their creative intuition always improves any project. You will not regret working with Jon and Toby, I cannot wait to work with them again hopefully soon!

    Jon could not be more talented!! He delivers the highest quality percussion and drum tracks with many different options for mic type and placement. He is quick, and understands exactly what I'm going for every time. He is a great communicator and a nice human being. I honestly cannot imagine anyone better than Jon, and I cannot recommend him any more highly. I will continue to use Jon for every job that I need. You will not be disappointed!!
