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.

Gear highlights

  • I use a range of vintage drums and cymbals. Various microphones
  • mainly vintage dynamic and ribbon mics. Nothing shiny or new
  • just bags of character!

Genres I specialize in

    Really unique style and approach with a great warm tone. Matt has clearly spent time honing his voice which stands out from your average session drummer. Quick turn around in getting stems also which is a bonus !
