I will play some killer drums on your track! I specialize in rock, metal and progressive but have experience playing a bunch of other genres too! ||| Ask me for a free demo |||
Hi, I am Naman Sachdev, and welcome to my profile! I am a professional session drummer with over 12 years of playing experience.
I have years of experience playing Rock, Metal, and Progressive music and would love to record drums on your song!
I will be recording the drums on an eKit using some world class drum libraries which gives me the ability to help you get exactly the sound you need for your song.
You can get in touch for whatever kind of drums you need. You might have an idea, a reference track, programmed drums which you need played with feel or you can leave it completely up to me.
If you have any questions just fire away and I will be more than happy to have a chat and understand your requirement.

This was my 4th song working with Naman, and I'm just as pleased as always. Very accommodating and professional, and a professional player. I have no doubt he can play any style, but he's exceptionally good at metal style drums. Lighting quick double kick!
I was very pleased with the outcome of this project. Naman is an exceptional drummer, communicated well, and delivered everything on time. He pays close attention to detail and delivers with precision. Last but not the least, the creativity is awesome!
Interview with Naman Sachdev (Whack Studio)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: For the most part Rock, Metal and Progressive music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Though most of my commercial work has been for heavier music, I absolutely love playing funk, plus some softer genres. I think because of this I am able to deliver relatively "less obvious" drum parts in songs which can really make the song shine through.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a very strong sense of groove.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Before starting on any song I make sure to understand what exactly the client is looking for. This can be in the form of reference tracks or drums they may have programmed themselves. Next I load up the track in my DAW and mark and colour code all the different parts to get a birds eye view of the whole song and understand the structure better. This lets me understand the overall picture better. I then conceptualize what each part could have and then sit on the drum kit to figure out individual parts.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My home studio has a hybrid electronic drum kit with a mix of a Roland and an Alesis kit. With these I use drum libraries like Addictive Drums, Get Good Drums & Steven Slate Drums. All this is supported by my trusted Alienware.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: If it comes to drummers Benny Greb, Nate Smith and Matt Garstka have to be my top inspirations! These guys are absolute legends on the drums.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Rock, Metal and Progressive - these are the 3 types of tracks I usually play drums on! I do play a lot of other stuff as well, but have a long background of playing heavy music so most clients know me for that.
