If you want drums recordings with a vintage, warm and characterful sound then I'm your man!

I use a 'less is more' approach to recording and take the time to get the sound that's right for the track. With fewer mic's there is less chance of problems with phase when it comes to mixing the drum tracks. With well placed mic's and an ear for detail I can produce a clear, punchy and warm drum track.

Hopefully my drumming speaks for itself on the tracks below, I am confident you will love what I add to your track.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    I'm very satisfied with the quality of the drums, quality of the recording, fast turn-around, and most of all Matt's ability to capture the essence of the song in his drum work. I am super excited to work with him again in the future. He is able to hear the nuances of a song and perfect it in his drumming.

    We received three excellent takes of drums and are currently in the process of mixing and matching. The drum tracks arrived before the delivery date. We are very impressed by the quality and professionalism of the service and intend to use again in the future. Henry Jackson Melbourne Australia
