Hi, my name is Calvin Fenner and I am a professional session drummer based out of Atlanta, Georgia. I attended and graduated from Berklee College of Music majoring in Drum Set Performance, and Contemporary Writing and Production. Within my home studio I am able to turn around quality drum tracks within 24-48 hours.

I have been playing drums since the age of two, so drumming is definitely a part of me. I am well versed in all styles of music (except heavy metal), and would love to be a part of your music project! Due to my vast knowledge and experience with recording and engineering, I can assure you that all files will be recorded to the utmost quality.

Current Equipment:
Pre-Sonus QUANTUM Thunderbolt Interface
Arturia AudioFuse 8pre ADAT Preamp
ART MPAII Tube Preamp
EARTHWORKS Microphones for Kick, Snare, Toms, and Overheads.
SE Electronics for HiHat and Ride Cymbal Microphones
Sabian HHX Crashes, Rides, and Hi Hats
Yamaha Drums

All files can be delivered as stems or a stereo mix, either pre-mixed or raw. Sample rates up to 96khz.
