Affordable, groovin' and great quality drum tracks, fast delivery times.
I have been a professional drummer since 1998 and performed over 2000 shows during this time. Lately, I have played some big musical shows, recorded a lot of remote drum tracks, and played various live gigs. I also have a successful YouTube drumming page with over 13 000 followers and + 3 500 000 views.
Here at SoundBetter, I'm offering remote drum tracks for a very reasonable price.
I have great quality recording gear and 50 snares to choose from, ex. Tama Bell Brass, 2x Keplinger, 13x Brady, 3x Craviotto, 6x Ludwig, 5x Longo, Joyful Noise TKO, 2x Noble & Cooley...
My recording gear includes UAD Apollo x8p, Audient ASP880, Shure / Telefunken / AKG / BeyerDynamic / Sennheiser / Coles / Earthworks mics and Logic X.
I'm an all-around drummer but my strongest styles are groove-based soul, pop, blues, funk, pop. I have studied with Steve Ferrone, Shawn Pelton, Aaron Comess, and many others.
